The Minister of Consumer Affairs defends, however, that his imprisonment “is a symptom of a serious democratic anomaly.”
The Minister of Consumption, Alberto Garzón, defended this Sunday that the imprisonment of Pablo Hasél “is a symptom of a serious democratic anomaly” although he has defended that the rapper “should never become an idol.”
The leader of the United Left has described Hasél during his speech at the meeting of the party’s Federal Coordinator as a person who “trivializes violence” and “does not have democratic convictions comparable to those of the 21st century and those of the IU.” With him, he stressed, “nothing else unites us other than the conviction that freedom of expression must prevail, nothing else unites us”
The minister has assured that “in an established democracy that aspires to be full, this consideration of tastes cannot prevail over freedom of expression” since this, he added, “must prevail over such untimely demonstrations, without taste or abominable from a moral point of view. “
In his opinion, “what is being violated in recent days with a sentence that imprisons a person for some tweets he posted on the internet is worrying, because it is a symptom of an increasingly reactionary reading of our rights and freedoms.”
“Even in the most terrible years of terrorist violence in this country, of the terrorist mafia that ravaged our country for too many years, not even in those years were such reactionary interpretations and readings of civil rights produced,” he asserted.
While from the purple formation they have again targeted the media this Sunday, whom they have accused of putting “the focus on the riots so that the root problem is stopped discussing and nothing changes,” Garzón has defended the leader of the party, Pablo Iglesias, in the face of “fierce attacks, sometimes with blatant, false manipulations, fake news, invented to build a false idea of reality.”
Whenever a democratic abnormality is denounced in the streets, the media power focuses on the disturbances so that the root problem is no longer debated, and nothing changes.
Garzón has once again shown his firm commitment to a future linked to purple and has remarked “clearly, emphatically” that from IU they are “firmly committed” to United We Can and Pablo Iglesias.
“We are together in this political project, in the defense against these attacks from certain socioeconomic actors who seek other different objectives,” he specified, pointing directly to “socioeconomic actors” who “were interested in not having a change on the left.” .
The minister has also defended that in United We Can are “loyal” to the coalition agreement that, he said, is “necessary at this time for Spain and more necessary if possible for the working classes.
