During 2015, SOS Racism’s Service of Attention to Victims of Racism and Xenofobia (SAID) attended 442 people.
It is important to highlight that in accordance with this report, in 2015, 4 out of 10 people (42%) who had suffered racist discrimination did not report it. This situation is more accentuated in concrete areas such as discrimination in private services where 82% of cases went unreported.
Amongst the cases of racism that SAID received in 2015, the final decision not to report more than half of them (53%) was taken by the victims themselves. This was motivated by fear, distrust in the justice system or in its institutions, the normalization of discrimination and on many occasions because they thought it “would be pointless”.
