Citizens urges Ada Colau to remove the investigated councilor
The plenary session of Barcelona’s town hall ask the government Pedro Sánchez, who urgently processes the pardon of rapper Pablo Hasel, sentenced to nine months in prison for glorification of terrorism and two fines for insults and slander against the Corona and the institutions of Condition.
The proposicin of Barcelona in Com, which among other points also demanded the repeal of the gag law and urged the Parliament cataln To review the autonomous police model, it has received favorable votes from Esquerra Republicana and Junts per Catalunya and has caused a division with its partner in the municipal Executive, the PSC, who voted against it.
The Socialists, for their part, have presented another proposal that asked to condemn and reject “without nuances” the altercations in the protests for the imprisonment of the musician, support the commercial and business fabric of the city, defend the freedom of expression and recognize the work of public services. The text has also been approved with the votes of Ciudadanos, PP and Barcelona for Change [el partido de Manuel Valls], abstention from common and Junts and the contrary vote of ERC, which has demanded “to make politics in capital letters”, beyond the sentences, to analyze the reasons for the mobilizations.
In plenary, which has rejected three proposals related to the unrest In the last days presented by Cs, PP and BCN Canvi, the divergence between municipal groups and within the local government regarding this matter has been evidenced, despite the unanimous condemnation of the violence and the looting in some shops. The socialist Jaume Collboni, First Deputy Mayor, and Jordi Mart, Councilor for the Presidency, have starred in a tat discussion about this issue. “The left is to go to the causes of the problems, while the right appeals more to the stomach than to reason,” defended the representative of BCom, to which the leader of the PSC replied: “We socialists spent 40 years listening to CiU say what it was to be good or bad Catalans; please, now do not tell us what it is to be a good or bad progressive “.
The one who used the most energetic tone during the session was Valls. “Change Hasel’s name to a Islamist radical or a neo-nazi. Is it freedom of expression? Is not a hate crime“, has exemplified the former French Prime Minister in one of his speeches.
Rejection of the roadmap
Before the debate on freedom of expression and the altercations, Mayor Ada Colau has seen how all the political groups of the opposition rejected her Municipal Action Program (PAM), the document that plans the main projects of the local government. It was precisely in the previous mandate when the bipartisan common and the PSC became the first Executive to which the plenary session of the City Council did not approve the PAM since these programs began to be developed at the end of the 90s. Not having this tool is not a practical setback, but it shows problems in reaching alliances with the rest of the groups, something that was common in the previous mandate and in this had managed to redirect.
Thus, despite the rejection, Mart has said that they will use the document as a roadmap until 2023 and has made Esquerra ugly that he has not supported it, contrary to what happened with the last two budgets of the Consistory: “It seems that they are more pending of the negotiation to form a Government of the Generalitat with Junts, whom they don’t want to bother. “The Republican councilor Jordi Coronas has refused to endorse “an inconcrete PAM and little transgressor with the establishment that I prioritized that there was no pro-independence mayor in Barcelona [por Ernest Maragall, ganador de las elecciones de 2019]”.
At the beginning of the plenary session of municipal Council the annual debate on the state of the city has been carried out, in which opposition groups have reproached the Colau Cabinet for its management during the pandemic of the coronavirus. “The extreme left that has ruled for six years has left Barcelona in the bones,” said the president of Ciudadanos en el Consistorio, Guilarte Light.
