The CUP, Candidatura de Unidad Popular, a far-left anti capitalist party, tried to occupy the headquarters of the PP Catalonia in Barcelona. The youth wing of the party, barricaded themselves in front of the PP headquarters and tried to get in. The goal of the protest was to demand a referendum of Catalonia Independence.

The spokesperson of the party and lead figure in the party, Anna Gabriel, went to the scene to support the protest.



Regardless of their positions, these kind of acts are shameful. Sad
Why are you expecting anti- capitalists to play by the ridiculous notions of what constitutes political activity in a capitalist society?
Not to mention, if Spain would just allow a referendum, none of this would be happening.

From what I understood, the PSOE primary debate was...rough to say the least.
Sanchez may not be a politically genius, but Susana Diaz makes it soooo easy to hate her.
From what I can discern, Susana Diaz is everything people hate about Hillary Clinton multiplied by 100.

I wonder how much Catalonia is hurting UP and Iglesias. The party's support for a Catalan secession referendum, while noble, cannot be popular with the rest of the country.

Is a Unidos/PSOE coalition likely? Or will Diaz look to the C's first?

This isn't even including the fact that the hugely popular Spanish national team goalkeeper David de Gea was accused by Sanchez of having sexually assaulted a minor (the allegations were false). Sanchez never apologized, and now De Gea is demanding one on the eve of the World Cup: http://www.the42.ie/de-gea-demands-public-apology-from-spanish-prime-minister-4065761-Jun2018/

BREAKING

Spanish Congress supports a legislative decree approved by the government in August in order to exhume and move away the Franco's remains from the Valle de los Caídos memorial.

The vote went as follows: 172 in favour, 164 abstentions and 2 against. All PP and Cs deputies abstained, except two PP members who voted against alleging mistake.

On the legislative decree

Quote
Forty-three years after the death of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco, the Socialist Party (PSOE) government of Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has begun the complex process of exhuming his remains from the Valley of the Fallen memorial site.

Today, the Cabinet approved a legislative decree that will add a pair of articles to the Historical Memory Law to legally safeguard the exhumation. Once approved, the decree will be put to a historic vote in Congress.

Wonderful news.

Why do C's even abstain. They should be a liberal pro-Europe political party, but they secretly still admire Franco. Ugh, Spanish politics is sick.
Because a lot of their support comes from nationalists. They hammered their colors to the mast in the Catalonia crisis.
