Joan Manuel Serrat does not want to put more firewood on the fire, but it hurts to be called fascist to be against the referendum on October 1. "That is tilde of fascist my statements is or not to know what fascism is or really to look for an insult to a person as you can look for a football referee when he honks something that we do not like and we remember his mother without that lady has had something to do" With the office that is supposed, "cried the singer in Buenos Aires, in the presentation of the tour the taste is ours, with Ana Belén, Víctor Manuel and Miguel Ríos." They all went out to defend their friend and showed a huge concern for the Catalan situation. Although he, who dealt faults between the nationalists and the PP, in the end closed so that they did not ask him more on the subject: "My greatest interest is not to delve into the gap, in the social fracture that is occurring".
Serrat responded in Buenos Aires to those who insulted him for saying that the referendum "is not transparent" and cannot represent anyone "to call John Fascist is to buzz or to have very bad milk." It is unfair, has always been the propagandist of Catalanism, "said Miguel Ríos defending Serrat, who 50 years ago opposed singing in the Eurovision if he could not do in Catalan and had to exile to Mexico during the dictatorship of Franco.
During a press conference in Chile last Friday, Serrat opposed the October 1 referendum by considering that "it is not transparent" and that it does not give the feeling "that I can represent anyone." For the musician, both the Generalitat and the central government had to keep the conflict to "cover a few years of economic cuts and political corruption." The singer received criticism on social networks, but also numerous supports under the label "#JoSocSerrat.
From Buenos Aires, everyone also criticized the PP for its immobilism and bet on an intermediate route. "I'm very sorry for everything that's going on, it's a big tear." "If we could spare the hooligans," cried Victor Manuel. "The PP could do helping instead of letting things rot." No the problem. The PP does not have all the responsibility but good part of it is good, said Serrat. The singer questioned that "tensions loosen unless somehow the path of dialogue may have a place that seems to me at this very desirable but very difficult heights."
"We are between madness and blindness," said Ana Belén. The singer warned that after the referendum the problem is going to be between Catalans and recompose the whole division that has been generated will be very fucked
