Palma, 20 (Europa Press)
Former Vice President of the Government and former Secretary General of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, in an act this Saturday in Palma, has criticized the “Madridization of the right wing” and warned that “from Madrid they are talking of a coup d’état”.
Pablo Iglesias spoke thus in an act of support for United We Can’s candidates for the presidency of the Balearic Government, Mallorca Council and Palma City Council, Antonia Jover, Iván Sevillano and Lucia Muñoz, where he explained how “right in Madrid found that crushing Podemos was the key to restoring and maintaining its power.”
In this sense, he cautions that “the reason why they have ETA in their mouths all day is not because they are insane, but rather it responds to a very precise strategy that they have established in recent years in their work laboratory”. Madrid, because that is precisely where it has its main assets, not only political, but also media, judicial and economic, to strengthen the maintenance of an ultra-reactionary power”.
And, Iglesias has continued, “they have a very similar approach with respect to the rest of the state.” That is why, as he has said, “Bildu and the Catalan libertarians care a lot”, because they are “an excuse” to show that they have found that Podemos is “a double whammy, a mush of alternative state institutional power”. ” which existed in the political system of 78″. “The rise of Podemos is a permanent reminder that Spain is not Madrid,” he insisted.
For this reason, he said, “the elections on May 28 are much more than municipal and regional elections. On the contrary, they are an important stage in the reconstruction of political power in the state as a whole.”
“Is Spain just Madrid?” Pablo Iglesias asked the attendees. “What does Feiju look like? Maybe he knows that Spain is not Madrid, but certainly he has verified that Spain has nothing to do with Galicia. This gentleman has discovered that if Pablo Casado is stabbed may be handed his head on a silver platter, Madrid’s media, economic and mafioso powers will do exactly that to him”.
Madrid, he denounced, “is the enclave where no journalist dares to put a face or ask questions to a businessman who has received bribes of more than half a million euros as mask commissioner, while hundreds of elderly people are dying in a In the midst of the epidemic. It was the brother of President Ayuso and with the Mafia, in Madrid, no one dared”.
“Regarding the political murder of Pablo Casado, what did it mean that the right wing handed over his head from a window in Genoa? They said: who dares to question the right wing mafia here in Madrid,” he said.
“What is the other problem they have with Podemos?”, he pointed out, “that it is ideological and anti-class. The businessman, even if he is an exploiter, you have to suck it up”.
Finally, Iglesias quoted Ioan Belarra, the current general secretary of Podemos, who said that “Podemos is not here just to say very left-wing things, it is to do them.”
“Not only do we respond to our PSOE comrades who say that housing is a market good, as Abalos said, we are here to push forward a housing law that centers the main class struggle of our time , because housing keeps those who only have a mortgage or salary to pay rent compared to a privileged minority who are basically banks or investment funds who only have it unproductively at the expense of the country To prosper is his property, and that, in Spain, with co-governmental responsibilities, only Podemos says so”, he has had influence.
For all this, according to Iglesias, “the right is obsessed with crushing Podemos, and that is why the vote for this formation on 28 May is a clear message to the Madrid right: you are not going to impose the whole of the state on you.” What are you”, he sentenced.
