"In the day marching right in Madrid, the fascist Vox goes side by side with högerliberala Ciudadanos and the Partido popular."
"They are protesting against the socialist prime minister Pedro Sanchez. The christian nationalist right-wing brings to its grossest insults and call him fosterlandsförrädare and Judas. The Spanish party Partido popular have on a website the desired life from the perspective of Sanchez."
"His crime is to prepare for the conversation with the elected Catalan regional government."
"the Manifestation of the, as the right wing puts it, ”our king city”, takes place two days before the trial against nine Catalan politicians. The Spanish central government has kept the nine in prison for over a year. They were transported to the trial in cages. They have also been accused of betraying the Spanish nation and, therefore, they are threatened all of the livstidslånga punishment."
"nDeras crimes: They have been operating for an independent Catalonia. The nine are democrats, some bourgeois-oriented, other socialists. The state has turned them into political prisoners. As it did in the 30's with, among others, the Catalan president, Lluís Companys."
"Catalonia's future constitutional status is a matter for politics and democracy. The Spanish right wing turned it into a legal, police matter."
"Pedro Sanchez want to, now, change the conditions; he wants to have the conversation, compromises and democratic involvement."
"It is, strange enough, a brave stance. Sanchez can succeed; he defeated the corrupt right-wing government and won against their own partihöger that once ousted him. His government's programme, negotiated with the radical Podemos, the basques and the catalans, is clearly to the left: 22% increase of the minimum wage, the big social reforms, generous recipient. More open to the world than the american ”reformist” at any time."
"Sanchez's future may be decided in Catalonia and a court in Madrid."
"nfrom the EU has nothing else heard than a weak assent to the Spanish högernationalismen."
"A legal and political failure. Catalonia's elected politicians are Europafederalister and democrats. As Well As Sanchez."
