Santiago Abascal travels through Catalonia after days of campaign. And of attacks. “While the coup plotters are in the street campaigning, we are attacked by violent men who call us fascists,” denounces the national leader of Vox in his interview with OKDIARIO after a day of campaigning. “But that is not the reality of the streets. People keep coming up to us to encourage us and ask us to continue ”, he adds. Abascal knows that the spotlight is more on his figure than Pablo Iglesias in Congress. (Photo: Podemosca. And on the result of Vox. For this reason “the Generalitat has designed and ordered the unprotection of Vox’s acts: it has done so intentionally seeking that some militant or sympathizer would respond to the attacks and thus be able to show a photo with which to affirm that Vox is violent. “Abascal gives a warning:” We are not afraid of these attacks. We know what we are coming for: to remove separatism. “

Iglesias has not proposed in the Government or a reform due to the alleged lack of “full democracy”

The second vice president of the Government, Pablo Iglesias, has been unleashed in the middle of the campaign of the Catalan elections of the next 14-F with his most brazen slogans in favor of the coup plotters in prison or the fugitive Carles Puigdemont. According to the leader of Podemos, the coup plotters are in prison because there is no “full democracy” in Spain. But the truth is that Iglesias has been in the Executive for a year. Furthermore, it is the main support of the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, since June 2018. And in these two and a half years of decisive support from the Executive, or in the last year of direct presence in the Council of Ministers, the number of complaints or requests for reform of churches related to the lack of “full democracy” in Spain has been equal to zero. Translated: either he has used the argument with all the cynicism in the electoral campaign, or he is an accomplice of that absence of “full” democracy that he denounces.

The ‘pacifist’ government of Sánchez and Iglesias has already sold 98 million in arms to Saudi Arabia

What Podemos demanded in the opposition is very different from what it does while in government. Despite the fact that since the purple formation it was insisted for years to systematically veto the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia on suspicion that it was used on the civilian population, only in the first six months of the coalition government a total of 16 export licenses were authorized of armaments to the monarchy of the Persian Gulf. Those 98.7 million euros have been allocated to rifles, machine guns, mortar grenades and drones, among other material.

Moncloa forced the 14-F despite the virus to invest Illa and now she declares herself “satisfied” if 50% vote

Participation in the Catalan elections next Sunday will be the center of all discussions about the legitimacy of their results. And it is that everyone, from Moncloa to the Government, is concerned that this participation may not even reach 50%. Reaching at least that percentage, after having forced the elections not to be postponed due to the pandemic to take advantage of the ‘Illa effect’, is Moncloa’s objective to be satisfied, despite the fact that it would be one of the lowest mobilizations of the history.

Health maintains in full pandemic crisis that the mask should be the last measure of protection
