Locally in the Campo de Gibraltar area, the Foro por la Memoria has written to the president of the Junta de Andalucía calling for him to sign the approval for buildings and roads constructed under Franco’s Strait of Gibraltar Fortification Plan to be declared a Historical Memory Site. They were built by more than 30,000 republican prisoners from all over Spain who were used as slave labour in appalling conditions between 1939 and 1943. In its letter, the Forum pointed out that the application was made five years ago, has institutional and popular support and all it needs to come into effect is his signature.
