Little lasted the truce within the government. The PSOE and united we can be frictionally friction in the last hours for their differences around police performance in Cádiz, during the Metal Strike, which meets this Ninth Day of protests on Wednesday.
The use of a tank by the police intervention units (UIP) aroused the discomfort of the minority member of the Government Coalition, to the point that the Second Vice President, Yolanda Díaz, contacted the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, A Last minute by Monday to demand explanations about the decision to use this vehicle, yielded a few years ago from the army to the police and that had not been seen to date in other great mobilizations or riots.
"We are talking about constitutional rights, they are not criminals, they are legitimately defending their rights," explained Diaz Tuesday in the hallways of Congress. For this reason, he said, claimed Marlaska "withdraw" the tanquet of the streets of Cádiz.
The videos that circulated by social networks and appeared on television surprised the second vice president, who was not informed at no time was intended to use this vehicle, a BMR armored without armament and only endowed with a shovel that, according to Delegation of Andalusian government, it has been used at specific times, as if to end the improvised barricades with containers.
Although since United we can emphasize that the telephone conversation with Marlaska was productive, for the inner moment it avoids ruling on the decision. This Tuesday, the Government spokesman, Isabel Rodríguez, also showed equidistance by emphasizing the "sensitivity" of the executive with the workers of the metal sector and "the confidence always of the government" with the security forces and bodies, "in charge of watching by the Security of all ".
The purple rejection is absolute and contrastably contrasted with the silence and prudence they show in the socialist ranks. Police action in Cádiz has been excessive, denounce in United Can, which, before the controversy broke out around the tank, announced its intention to promote an institutional declaration in the lower house so that all groups will show their support for the Gaditan metallurgical sector.
"Enough tanks, it's enough to repress them with rubber bullets and enough of criminalizing them by the media powers. United we can, with Cádiz," said the Purple Parliamentarian spokesman, Pablo Echenique, in view of his Demands to support the strike and reduce the use of armor have not taken effect.
The controversy arrives at a moment sensitive in the relationship of the executive with the security forces and bodies of the State. This Sunday, the presence of thousands of people is planned against a demonstration against the reform of the Jorda Law that the Executive is designed.
In fact, this Wednesday has already convened a concentration at the gates of all government delegations to protest against a remodeling that, according to police unions, deprotege to the National Police, Civil Guard and Local Police denounce.
The opposition, which will be present in the concentrations against the reform of the Mordazo Law, has assumed in different ways the last internal conflict within the Government. The PP accuses Diaz of having employed police bodies to "hide" mismanagement of the Ministry of Labor with the metallurgical sector in the Bay of Cádiz.
On the contrary, the "repression" that Fernando Grande-Marlaska has been criticized against protesters: "The struggle of metal workers is the legitimate claim of a condemned province to misery, instead of listening to their demands, Marlaska offers abandonment and repression. The only possible solution is the reindustrialization of the bay and the protection of workers, "the leader of training, Santiago Abascal claimed.Updated Date: 25 November 2021, 17:33
