A Day of Protest

There will be two demonstrations in the city of Granada today; one in favour of Palestinian civilians in Gaza and the other against amnesty for Catalán Rebels.

GRA C&M Pro-Palestinian Protest in GranadaIn fact, the Coordinator for Andalucía con Palestina has convoked a protest march in each one of the eight provincial capitals throughout Andalucía, with the exception of Cádiz, so it’s not just in the city of Granada.

This Palestinian protest will take place at the exact same time; i.e., noon, as the one organised by the chief opposition party, the PP, against the Government’s plan to award the condition of amnesty for the Catalán politicians who attempted to bring about unilateral independence.

The amnesty agreement between the caretaker Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, and the Catalán independentist parties (ERC/Junts) will ensure that he will be re-elected, avoiding the country having to go to the polls again in January.

The Coordinadora Andalucía con Palestina has organised the protest in solidarity with the Palestinian people, starting out from the Jardines del Triunfo. The protest organised by the PP, however, will be held in Plaza Nueva.

Therefore, unless you wish to participate in one of these protest marches, it would be best to avoid the city today as there will be traffic congestion.

    A: That really does depend on the PP opposition party, which I doubt as the caretaker PM gets sworn in on Thursday, and what happens in Gaza. But in both cases, I don’t think that either will have time to get anything organised by next week.

    Are they likely to be more demonstrations next weekend?

    It’s a shame the two protests were held on the same day. Divide and conquer? Viva Palestina

    What a mess the ruling classes leave behind. Once we scuttled from ex British Empire lands !!
    I know 6million plus Jews were killed by the Nazi regime. Along with millions of Disabled. Left leaning Liberals. Mentally disabled and Gypsies. 19 million Russian civilians were killed during WW2. 10 million during the Revolution. Either shot or starved.
    No idea of how many Palestinians have died since the occupation by the incoming WW2 European veterans.
    Man’s humanity and inhumanity seems to know no bounds.
    On the Amnesty situation. Once again. The lust for power eases the conscience. Spain I think will follow the UK. With its devolved governments. More palms to grease. Don’t worry about the Loans. Just back me. You don’t want your taxes to go into a central government. No probs.
    What an odd world.
