The Government is not afraid of the photo of the demonstration in Plaza Coln against the pardons of Catalan prisoners sentenced for the secessionist attempt of 2017. Moreover, it considers that the image of unity between PP, Vox and Ciudadanos, as happened in 2019 in the same place, it will serve to vindicate itself in a central space in Spanish politics to face the territorial crisis. This is how Miquel Iceta transmitted it this morning in the National Council of the PSC. The minister of Territorial Policy and Public Function he has warned that “they will raise their voices” against “a right that is incapable of contributing anything, wants to destroy everything and, when it is lost and confused, returns to Columbus”.

In the same vein as President Pedro Sánchez and other members of the Executive, the first secretary of the Catalan Socialists has paved the way for the decision that, presumably in the coming weeks, should take the Minister council on the independence prisoners: “We want dialogue, concord and be useful.” The leader of the PSC has contrasted this will with the attitude of the popular, which yesterday announced that they will collect signatures against the possible granting of the grace measure and will present motions in all the Spanish municipalities where they have representation in the same sense.

Iceta has criticized the “short memory” of the PP, in reference to the campaign of signatures against the statute Catalan promoted 15 years ago: “After a while, they had to face a political crisis of the very first magnitude, with a consultation and a referndum illegal activities and a unilateral declaration of independence. “” Whoever truly loves Spain does not divide it or confront its peoples, “he added.

On the other hand, the Defense Minister, Margarita Robles, has avoided pronouncing on the pardons. Interviewed this morning at TVE on the occasion of Day of the Armed Forces, has limited itself to talking about the work of the Army: “It has shown that it is where it needs to be and ensuring the safety of Spain. I feel very proud of the work that the Armed Forces have done.”

Apart from the military commemoration, the public network has not asked him about the controversy generated around the measure of grace for the prisoners of the procs, but only because of the statements of the ambassador of Morocco After the crisis with the neighboring country: “We demand respect and we also give that respect. What is evident is that it cannot be accepted that minors are used as an instrument to circumvent the borders of Spain.”

“Strong leadership”

Iceta’s words have been followed by whoever was in command of the Ministry of Health until a few months ago. Salvador Illa, today become head of the opposition in the Parliament, has praised the figure of Sánchez when facing the Catalan political conflict and, in particular, the episode of the pardons: “Responsibility, conviction and courage are the characteristics of strong leadership for a country to advance. Catalonia needs to give a I jump forward and it’s the government from Spain who offers us this leadership to go from disagreement to reunion “.

The organization secretary of the PSC has blamed the rights “from there and here” for practicing “the patriotism of fear and the revenge of cowardice” for fear “that things will go well.” “Patriotism is to guarantee the right to stability, harmony and prosperity “, has abounded in tune with the government message this week.

Illa has said that never as now “has it been so necessary to reach agreements” and that “it does not matter that the road is difficult if the end is worth it”. The leader of the PSC in the Catalan Chamber has accused Esquerra Republicana and Junts per Catalunya, the two partners of the Government, of “continuing to deceive the population as in the last decade”, since “there will be no amnesty, neither a referendum of self-determination nor independence “.” Whoever has not learned that outside the rule of law there is only chaos has not understood anything in these last ten years, “he argued.

The former minister has also announced that in the next few days he will present a shadow government to make a “constructive but very forceful” opposition to the Executive of Pere Aragons, which this week began its journey, more than three months after the autonomous elections February 14.
