In investiture session of Pedro Sánchez and response to Spanish extreme right wing:
“Let’s talk about what it means to betray Spain. To betray Spain is to attack workers’ rights, sell public housing to vulture funds, privatize public services, stealing money hand over fist and finance themselves illegally”.
It’s noteworthy, Podemos party, Pablo Iglesias, celebrated the imminent investiture of the social democrat Pedro Sánchez will help Spain to have a “progressive nature ” government that will work to reverse regression in rights and freedoms that the country suffered in the last view decade.
Sánchez and Iglesias reached an agreement to form a coalition government – first in Spain recent history – after elections last November 10.
That Government will have a program of a marked progressive nature, based on what Pedro Sánchez himself baptized as a “social patriotism” that will seek to increase tax burden on higher incomes to increase social investments.
Similarly, joint PSOE-UP program is committed to repealing the “Gag Law” approved by conservative Mariano Rajoy and assume the territorial crisis in Catalonia is a “political conflict” that must be resolved through democratic channels negotiated with independence.
The reason for Pablo Iglesia response shown in the video above, is the right wing has described as “treason” the next Government of Spain will be formed thanks to e abstention of Basque and Catalan pro-independence.
