The leader of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, has said that the "independence" of the Supreme Court (TS) is in "interdict" for the sentence on the mortgages and he has called for a "great civic mobilization", since he believes that "the bank wins and the citizens lose".
In his Twitter account, he referred to the decision of the TS that has agreed that the client should pay the Duty of Legal Documents (AJD) linked to the signing of a mortgage, which is a step backwards in the recent doctrine, issued three weeks ago, which imposed on the bank the payment of this tax.
Iglesias has criticized that the independence of the TS is "in question" and has considered that democracy is "weakened".
"Shame and anger must become a great civic mobilization to defend the rights of the majority against the privileges of a minority," he added.
In fact, Unidos Podemos has called a demonstration for next Saturday at the gates of the Supreme Court (TS).
On Saturday afternoon, in front of the Supreme Court at 18:00, we see ourselves with citizenship to defend social justice, judicial independence and dignity. The parties should not be protagonists, but we must be with our people

Given the situation of loss of prestige in which the Justice of this country remains, and before the unacceptable blackmail of the private banking, I have spoken with @Pablo_Iglesias_ and we have decided to call a rally on Saturday in front of the Supreme Court, at 6:00 p.m. Real Democracy Now!

Through social networks, both the leader of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, and the IU, Alberto Garzón, are calling to demonstrate on Saturday at 6 pm after knowing the agreement of the TS, which is a step back in the recent doctrine , issued three weeks ago, which imposed on the bank the payment of this tax.
"On Saturday afternoon, in front of the Supreme Court, at 6:00 pm, we see ourselves with citizenship to defend social justice, judicial independence and dignity," Iglesias wrote. "The parties should not be protagonists, but we should be with our people," he concludes.
Garzón, meanwhile, says on Twitter that the call is due to the "loss of prestige" in which justice remains in Spain with that decision of the Supreme Court and the need to respond to the "unacceptable blackmail of private banking."
