The prosecution, above all, argued in their last plea that I generated an abstract risk and an indirect incitement to violence. It’s a contradiction because risk is already abstract, not something material or concrete. So abstract risk is the abstraction of abstraction or something like that. And then, what does indirect incitement to violence mean? If I record an eviction, and it generates hate in someone who sees it, is it my fault or the fault of whoever caused the eviction? If I show the images of how the police attack people for protesting peacefully in a plaza and that generates hatred in someone, is it my fault or the fault of the police that has committed this act? As I told the National Audience, I am not making anything up. I am not creating a reality. I am putting a camera, and I am reflecting something that is there. I am not at fault for what it generates in people who see it. The fault is on whoever provokes these realities and creates these realities.
