Anna Gabriel reappears at a CUP event four years later: “Let’s eat the rich”

BarcelonaIt had been four and a half years since the former CUP deputy Anna Gabriel had not participated in an event in Catalonia. She was in Switzerland for almost a year, since 2018, and last July she became the second exile who has decided to return after former councilor Meritxell Serret. But it wasn’t until this Sunday that he was reunited with the bases of his party in Barcelona.

With a short speech and emphasizing the well-known rejection of anti-capitalists to personalisms, he considered that the independence movement is facing the “closing of a political cycle” and claimed the role of the independence left in this scenario: “We are not satisfied with empty words and simplistic speeches”. Therefore, he harangued the militants to continue “fighting”: “To eat the rich, to make freedom a habit, and to win everything, if possible!”.

“If I can be of any use after a long time away, it is to infect you with maximum self-esteem, absolute pride,” claimed the cupaire, who was released last Wednesday without precautionary measures after testifying before the magistrate investigating the case of the Process, Pablo Llarena. Gabriel has once again avoided entering both his stage of exile in Switzerland and disclosing the reasons that have made him return.

Last July, there was surprise when the Supreme Court announced, via press release, that Gabriel was in Madrid with the intention of regularizing his procedural situation: he is being investigated for disobedience for his participation in the organization of the 1 -O. Of his return to the State, no image or live statement was recorded: the media were not there in time. In a statement, he limited himself to talking about “reflections” on the political and judicial context and his “personal circumstances” for having taken the decision.

“We are necessary because we bring a new world”, said Gabriel, claiming the motto of the days organized by the training at Nau Bostik in Barcelona this weekend: Freedom is a habit. He urged the grassroots to “remain militant”: “People who fight are what we need”. In his speech, Gabriel avoided entering the political fray and focused on vindicating the role of the CUP. “Through all the impossible, the pro-independence left is still alive, and I would say more than ever”, he defended: “It is a treasure”.

The only direct reference to the Government of ERC and JxCat was made by the spokesperson of the National Secretariat for training, Edgar Fernàndez. “You can’t govern for everyone,” he said: “If they are not part of the solution, they are part of the problem, and this government is being part of the problem.” Fernández, who has denounced that the executive “makes a terrible joke with cross-accusations and no proposals”, has warned the two coalition parties: “Don’t count on us and prepare, because we will organize”.
