COMMEMORATION: ‘Activists’ invade council meeting (September 3, 2012)


JAVEA councillors and members of the public dived for cover when activists invaded a council chamber screaming death threats and making loud explosions.

No-one was injured in the incident by the three roughly clad ‘activists’ who were enthusiastic amateur actors commemorating an historic event dating back to 1812. 

Records show that during the War of Independence against Napoleon’s rule, the French destroyed the ancient castle of Fontana, looting and killing. 

Actors Bartholomew Bas, Francisco Pastor and Anabel Chulvi, narrated the ancient acts as recorded in a play written by historian Antoni Espinós, emphasising the incredible violence of the day which included the mass slaughter of 16 residents.

The play is officially listed as being ‘small and humorous.’ Additionally a book will soon be published which chronicles this looting and other events that occurred in Xàbia and the Marina Alta and consequences of the French War.

The script for this small, humorous play was written by historian Antoni Espinós based on written records that inspired legends such as the Groc de Sala guerrillas and the Campaner.

Looting lasted two days and as well as private houses it affected the parish church, the convents of the Augustinos and Minimos and the cemetery graves. It also represents one of the repeated attacks suffered by the town archives which have led to a lack of written records of Xàbia’s most important historical events.

A book will soon be published which chronicles this looting and other events that occurred in Xàbia and the Marina Alta and consequences of the French War.
