Ciudadanos are social and political pyromaniacs, unable to stop pouring petrol on the fire, as they see it burning a way to power. The legal abuse of Catalonia and the Catalans by the Spanish State since last summer has been dependent on the complicity and false testimony of Ciutadans. How else could a Catalan dream of governing Spain?
The Nazis in Spain are those that tattoo swastikas, or similar, on their skin or glorify the Third Reich. The terrorists in Spain are those who have committed or incited intimidatory violence for their cause. To call a Catalan independentist a Nazi or a terrorist in 2018 is an abomination.
“Albert Rivera talks of defeating nationalism, but his party offers only one nationalism with which to cover everything else. He dreams of becoming president of Spain, but this tweet was anything but presidential. It was that of a hooligan.”
“On the one hand, yellow stands for freshness, happiness, positivity, clarity, energy, optimism, enlightenment, remembrance, intellect, honour, loyalty, and joy, but on the other, it represents cowardice and deceit.”
Like an internationally bankrolled and newly successful football club hoping to win the league and make the step up to European football, the Ciudadanos National Directorate has announced a raft of new signings. Manuel Valls could be their candidate for Barcelona mayor.
The Spanish government is like a rabid dog that needs putting down, that should have been put down long ago. But there is no one to do it as it has all the power, and so it will keep on biting. Today begins a new round of hearings for those accused of rebellion and secession and the trial of the Altsasu 8.
Last Wednesday, 11 April, was the 25th anniversary of the murder of young Guillem Agulló. The crime was key in uniting much of the Valencian left against fascism. The trial, however, reflected the impunity afforded to the far-right in the Community of Valencia. Nothing has changed, as we saw in the violent attacks of last October 9.
