First year of legislature. Unpublished and recently inaugurated Government Coalition and… wham! a global pandemic.What happens sixty business weeks later ?: thirty-two laws passed. One law every two weeks. If we add the validated Royal Decree Law to the bills and proposals, we reach the 80 norms with the force of law so far this legislature. And it is worth remembering the figures. And more than the quantity, which is important because of the capacity and intensity of the work, it is very important to recognize what matters have been regulated by the approved standards. The Climate Change Law, the Child Protection Law, the Minimum Living Income, the Euthanasia Law, the Lomloe...

When the priority is people

June 1, 2018 will go down in the history books as the day democracy defeated corruption. The motion of censure put an end to the largest corruption plot in Spain in democracy. A plot orchestrated by a dissolute party, the Popular Party, and supported by a government, that of Mariano Rajoy, which came to make the State institutions the necessary accomplices to cover up the looting of popular leaders.I remember the silence of the days before the sentence of the belt. It was the silence of the downcast gaze and the gnashing of teeth. The silence of shame. The one felt by all of us who, perhaps, do not wear the red on our wrist, but we believe that our country and, above all, Spaniards deserve,...

Yolanda Díaz: how to get away from the controversies and avoid wearing out without reducing the pressure on the PSOE

The renewal of United We Can after the departure of Pablo Iglesias, at least for now, will not be of charges.
