The Social Welfare Department of Rincon de la Victoria Town Hall will mark Anti-Bullying Day (May 4) with a participatory film forum to raise awareness of the problem among young people.

The event will take place on May 6 at 8 p.m. in the Sala Las Musas of La Cala del Moral. A short film will be screened, telling the true stories of child victims of bullying.

The Councilor for Social Welfare, Elena Aguilar, stressed “the need for the involvement of institutions, teachers and families to put an end to a problem that exists in schools”. She added that bullying “has serious physical, psychological and social consequences that can be life-threatening, long-lasting and affect a person’s development”.

Bosco Vida, director of the Municipal Theater School and moderator of the film forum, said: “We focused on the three angles of the triangle: the bullied person, the bully and the spectator.
