Protest on September 11 (national day of Catalonia), 1977, demanding the amnesty for political prisoners and a Statute of Autonomy
for Catalonia under the motto “llibertat, amnistia, estatut d’autonomia!” (liberty, amnesty, statue of autonomy!” in Catalan).
It was the first authorized protest in Barcelona after the death of the fascist dictator Franco, who had prohibited all manifestations of Catalan language, culture and identity.
Encompassing 110,000 square feet of space, the 9/11 Memorial Museum was built to honor the victims of the terrorist attacks on both September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The memorial cost $USD700 million to build, with funds being collected through both private and public donations. The museum presents 23,000 images, 10,300 artifacts, 500 hours of moving images and 1,970 oral histories.
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood.
