As we have come to see through rumors on the internet and certain types off press, the last year underground activities has increased considerably in Barcelona.
This increase has come to a point where the least dependable forum of information, media such as the press and television had started raging over the new situation.
The last week we have been able to see a alarming amount of news relating to graffiti activities both about Madrid and Barcelona. Newspapers and TV has given quite a large space for the subject lately by reporting about the latest arrests and investigations. As we might have guessed, these news lacks of truth and intentionally searches to create opinion through exaggerations and by dramatizing the situation. The intention is obviously to create a public opinion, but the results might be a dangerous social need for alarm.
