    Madrid

    Tens of thousands of disenchanted and unemployed young Spaniards refused to leave tent cities they raised over the week in plazas throughout the country, defying an official ban on gatherings ahead of this Sunday’s municipal elections.

    Barcelona - Protests demanding a reform of Spain's democracy Wednesday took a violent turn in Barcelona, where demonstrators attacked regional lawmakers and more than 20 people were injured in clashes.

    More than 3,000 protesters had gathered outside the Ciutadella park, where the regional parliament is located, to bar lawmakers from entering.

    Demonstrators booed lawmakers and attacked some of them, spraying their clothes, throwing banana peels and pushing them, witnesses said. One MP was knocked to the ground and suffered slight injuries.

    Police charged against the protesters and formed a security corridor for legislators to pass through. Medical services attended to 20 demonstrators and three police officers for light injuries.

    Catalan regional Prime Minister Artur Mas and other lawmakers landed in eight helicopters in front of the parliament building. Some arrived in bullet-proof cars.

    The protesters were trying to prevent a debate on the regional budget, which is expected to cut spending on health and education.

    Harold Heckle – Anti-Austerity Protests Grip Spain – 8 October 2012

    TENS of thousands of people have marched in 56 Spanish cities to protest punishing austerity cuts they say will only increase unemployment and job insecurity in a country experiencing its second recession in three years and record high unemployment.

    Around 20,000 people marched in Madrid on Sunday behind a banner that said: “They want to ruin the country. We have to stop them.” The rally in Spain’s capital was supported by 150 organisations.

    .SPAIN’S PROPOSED “NATIONAL SECURITY LAW” WOULD ALLOW SEIZURE OF CITIZENS’ PROPERTY DURING HEALTH “CRISIS”
    Posted by John Titor | Jul 4, 2021 |



    The prominent Spanish daily El País is reporting a hugely alarming scenario in which Spain’s central government is mulling a national mobilization and “security law” which would compel citizens to “temporarily” give up their rights in instances of future public health crises or emergencies such as happened with the coronavirus pandemic.

    The law is currently at the level of a mere proposal but worrisomely it would elevate matters of public health to the level of ‘national security’ – as El País spells out based on a translation of its reporting: “Any person of legal age shall be obliged to carry out the ‘personal obligations’ required by the competent authorities, following the guidelines of the National Security Council, when a state of crisis is declared in Spain. In this case, all citizens without exception must comply with the orders and instructions issued by the authorities.”

    This sounds vague enough to suggest literally nothing would be off-limits in terms of state authorities’ massive legally enshrined reach into people’s personal lives on the mere bases of a national crisis. And further there’s little or nothing which establishes a clear threshold for what legally would constitute such a crisis.

    Throughout the pandemic we’ve already seen a number of places in Europe, also especially Canada, where government officials already essentially claim such far-reaching powers to force the citizenry to conform. Now Spain is looking to permanently enshrine this scenario into law.

    Consider just how far this Orwellian proposal goes, as reported on in El País:

    In the event that a state of crisis is declared in Spain (‘situation of interest to National Security’ is the name given by law), the authorities may also proceed to the temporary requisition of all types of property, at the intervention or provisional occupation of those that are necessary or the suspension of all kinds of activities.
