Barcelona Updated:09/11/2019 02:54h
The collective radical separatists cling to, once again, to the mobilization to try to the cause of independence cope the spotlight this weekend, coinciding with the new appointment with the polls. Tsunami Democràtic or CDR, the groups who are leading out anonymously the protests in Catalonia after the judgment by the 1-Or, returning today to the old ways with an agenda of industrial action -and “festive”, as they say – scattered throughout the Catalan territory, and which will be extended to the middle of the next week with his “more ambitious actions”.
“We’ll do it again”; “this Saturday we continue on to the streets to demonstrate that our strength is still alive”; “the 9-N hagámosles reflect. Desobedezcamos to the Central Electoral Board (JEC)”. Are some of the messages that have been days circulating in the channels of dissemination of the Committees for the Defense of the Republic (CDR).
So, if after the protests for the visit of the Royal Family earlier in the week -which resulted in blockades and attacks some of the attendees of the awards that were received – and the failed public protest yesterday to Pedro Sánchez in their final meeting in Barcelona, the collective’s most radical reactivated today its machinery. Actions are planned in over 300 villages, between 16 and 22 hours, which will have the goal of criticizing the national electoral commission, which paradoxically tolerated the camping independence of Barcelona in plaza Universidad, follow despite the complaints.
It is also intended that in the day of today is precisely the State which “reflect on the political situation” and recognize the right to self-determination, release of political prisoners and stop repression, to defend the activists in their channels.
A day of test
At the same time, the appointment is intended to be, so they say, a day of tests to check its internal channels. “Will represent the first time that you use the “app” of Tsunami. It will be used for small communications that will be essential to test it technically, and all the world to make it yours. It will be a day of protest, but also a test”, he added, this same week the Tsunami in a press release.
Yesterday it was understood especially this last part, since that Tsunami Democràtic announced its “more ambitious actions” until now, planned for the day after the election. “Let’s get ready for a 11-S of three days,” pointed out yesterday in a new statement, alluding to the mobilisation independence of each 11th of September, coinciding with the Diada.
For this occasion, the leaders of the platform, trapped in the anonymity, suggest to their followers that ask for “party” on the job, at least one of these three days, between Monday and Wednesday. Also required to be willing to move around the Catalan territory and to “spend the night outside”, so there is that “prepare warm clothing, extra batteries for the mobile, food, sleeping bag and tent, and an attitude doggedly non-violent.”
The calendar of events along with the date the polls will again test the harmony between the police forces present in Catalonia. Mossos d’esquadra and the National Police force and Guardia Civil will have to ensure that the null effect of the protests and for the proper functioning of the election day tomorrow, and a device directed by the police Catalan which is expected to peak in terms of effective.
Some sources point out that the Mossos will have all their available agents, also riot, activated, even though the official sources do not confirm the figures. Them, as you touch them, they will take care of the device and shall ensure the presence of fixed or dynamic agents in each polling place. They can add up, if necessary, the troops of the Guardia Civil and the National Police, which will add about 2,000, with reinforcements arriving from all over the country.
Although from the direction of the Mossos are confident that the 10-N can occur with total normalcy and peace of mind, have warned their troops that it is prepared for a scenario of “maximum activation” to protect the polling stations. The device, the greater created on an election day in Catalonia and which will continue to be from operations co-ordination centre (Cecor), will be a new litmus test of good coordination between bodies.
