The CGT denounces the "clean-up" of Plaça de Catalunya and calls for peaceful resistance and mobilization


The Catalonian CGT strongly condemns the actions of the police this morning, Friday 27 May, against the protesters in Barcelona and Lleida, where personal belongings were seized, the squares cleared and violent repression out of all proportion was directed at people behaving calmly, all of which resulted in dozens of injured.

We are alarmed about the spiral of police repression being promoted by Convergència i Unió (CiU) on the mandate of the Generalitat. We must not tolerate the imposition of a police State that represses the freedom of expression and movement, that does not allow people to use the streets for protest and freedom of dissent.

We invite everyone to go to Plaça de Catalunya and support the participants in the protests and their support rallies involving hundreds. We invite similar initiatives in other locations, wherever protesters are being cleared out. In particular we appeal to everyone for massive participation in the demonstration called for Friday 27 at 7.00 pm in Plaça de Catalunya.

In the light of these events, the CGT in Catalonia calls for peaceful, non-violent resistance.

They say it's democracy, but it's not.

They may clear the streets, but we will never give up our ideas.

This is only the beginning. The struggle against cuts, against police repression and against the corrupt political leadership of those who govern us will go on.

No passaran!

La Confederació General del Treball de Catalunya dénonce le « nettoyage » de la Plaça de Catalunya et appelle à la résistance pacifique et à la mobilisation

La CGT catalane (Confederació General del Treball de Catalunya) dénonce le « nettoyage » violent de la Plaça de Catalunya à Barcelone et appelle à la résistance non-violente et pacifique et à la participation aux manifestations en solidarité.

La CGT catalane condamne fortement les actions de la police du matin de vendredi, le 27 mai, contre les manifestant-e-s à Barcelone et Lérida, où les objets personnels de manifestant-e-s furent confisqués, les places publiques furent vidées et les gens manifestant dans le calme ont subit une violente répression hors de toute proportion, ce qui causa plusieurs douzaines de blessé-e-s.

Nous sommes alarmé-e-s par la spirale de la répression policière promue par la Convergència i Unió (CiU) [Ndt. Fédération de partis politiques catalans de centre-droit] sur le mandat de la Generalitat [Ndt. Organisation politique de la Catalogne]. Nous ne devons pas tolérer l’imposition d’une police d’État qui réprime la liberté d’expression et le mouvement, qui ne permet pas aux gens de prendre la rue pour exercer leur liberté de manifester et de dissension.

Nous invitons tous le monde à aller sur la Plaça de Catalunya et à y supporter les centaines de participant-e-s des manifestations. Nous invitons également à ce que se forment des initiatives similaires dans d’autres localités, partout où les manifestant-e-s se font chassé-e-s. Nous appelons particulièrement à la participation massive à une manifestation annoncée pour le vendredi 27 mai, à 7h pm à la Plaça de Catalunya.

À la lumière de ces événements, la CGT catalane appelle à la résistance pacifique et non-violente
.

Ils disent que c’est la démocratie, mais ce ne l’est pas.
Ils peuvent vider les rues, mais ils ne réussiront jamais à chasser nos idées.
Ce n’est que le début. La lutte contre les coupures, contre la répression policière et contre les dirigeant-e-s politiques corrompu-e-s va continuer!

No passaran!

The repression continues after the general strike. This morning, while she was on her way to work, the Catalonian police arrested the Organization Secretary of the CGT-Barcelona, Laura Gómez and took her to the police station in Les Corts. They do not like the fact that every time there are more and more of us, protesting against the negotiation of labour reform and against the "social pact", not for it. [Castellano]

Madrid saw significant riots on Tuesday as police attacked the tens of thousands of protesters who had surrounded the parliament building to protest the introduction of more severe austerity cuts. A WSM member from the Spanish state explains the context, what happened on Tuesday and the demands of 'En Pie', the movement which called the protest.

The platform “En Pie” (Stand up), composed of a diverse group of left-wing political party members and 15M activists, had called a protest for the Tuesday 25th September at 19.00 in Madrid. The intent was to surround the parliament buildings (Congress) in the centre of Madrid, to show that democracy had been “kidnapped” by inept Spanish politicians, and to demand that all politicians inside resign and re write the Spanish constitution. ¨En Pie, Stand Up¨ is composed by a very diverse group of members of left wing groups and 15M activists.
