"The question is not why we are so hard; the question is why you are so cowardly". In a week marked by the publication of the General Budgets of the State and the Agreement between PSOE and PP to renew some constitutional bodies, the Democratic Memocratic Law has spent its first review at the Congress of Deputies, an opportunity that has taken advantage of ERC "Information that for the moment it denies its support for budgets - to emphasize their disapproval on a norm that, they say, it is just" posture. "
With these terms, and before the look of the Minister of Presidency, relations with the Democratic Courts and Memory, Felix Bolaños, has been expressed the Republican spokesman at Congress, Gabriel Rufián, to denounce the numerous shortcomings that, according to his parliamentary group, presents A rule on which this Thursday has been discussed several amendments to all, among them an ERC. An amendment, has rated Rufian, emitted "in legitimate defense" of victims and aimed at all "camera antifascists".
ERC already voted against the Historical Memory Law of 2007, promoted by the Socialist Government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. This Thursday, Rufián has dedicated himself the intervention of him to Joan Tardà, who captained the parliamentary group 14 years ago. For the Republican, a "good" memory law should count on the approval of the three "historical" matches: PSOE, ERC and PNV. Something that currently does not occur.
Thus, Rufián has considered "first of antifascism" that a democratic memory law defined as "illegal" - and not "null" or "illegitimate" - that a regime arose from a coup d'état. The government, he has denounced, "does not have bemoles" of "declaring it fascist" online to international postulates several decades ago, something that seems a sign of "cowardice" for an executive that is progressive.
On the other hand, the ERC leader in Congress has regretted that in the text, approved by the Council of Ministers Last July, it is not concretized "nor a single mechanism", nor "compensation" or way to make a "patrimonial claim "To make the reconstruction and repair of the victims real and possible. "It's a shame," he has thrown him. "A memory law without memory".
In the same way, Rufián has wondered what it serves to create a specific room prosecutor, as promoted by the new law, if it can only "investigate", but not "denounce", as if it were, he has ironized, "a private detective". "Posture, once again," he has explained to the members present in the full chamber's full.
This law either, has reproached Rufián to Bolaños, "recognizes or unambiguously and unequivocally repair the damage caused" to the Language and the Catalan, Basque or Galician culture during the dictatorship, nor "explicitly dignified" the memory of the Spanish victims deported to fields of Nazi concentration. Finally, he has regretted that the text does not dedicate "neither a line" to "condemn the dome of the Catholic Church during the regime."
Faced with this, the Minister of the Presidency, Felix Bolaños, has defended the draft law of democratic memory insisting that it is a norm that "neutralizes oblivion" and defends victims condemning "all form of political totalitarianism".
It is a law, it has stressed, for "healing injuries and calming the damage" that caused the dictatorship, war and coup dictation of 36 "without distinctions between victims". "The memory", has insisted Bolaños, "is a state policy" because "condemn the dictatorship is democracy" and therefore "does not fit the hunt for the blow or the exaltation of human rights violations during the war and dictatorship" .
"The project claims the recognition of the truth," he has assured before insisting that "in the law there will not be a story of part" because it is a "Concord and Concord" "law", "for reunion and repair" .
Given the evidence that any of the Government partners, mainly ERC, is dissatisfied with the scope of the rule, the Minister of the Presidency has set the executive's hand to accept amendments and improvements of all parliamentary forces.
The Amendment of ERC, although it has been rejected in the vote, has had the manifest support of groups such as Eh Bildu, the CUP or PDECAT, among others. The PNV, on the other hand, has considered that it could be reconnected through partial amendments to the text.Updated Date: 14 October 2021, 21:33
