Through their internal arguments, but also in their latest public statements, the leadership of the Popular Party has begun to suggest the outlawing of United We Can because, according to Pablo Casado’s party, it “encourages violence” from the riots that occurred in different Spanish cities in the last week during the protests over the imprisonment of rapper Pablo Hasel last Tuesday.
Ester Quintana: “The ‘foam’ projectiles have to be prohibited”
The first to suggest it was Casado himself on Sunday. “The Security Forces and Bodies risk their lives to defend ours, the law and freedom. Sánchez must cease the ministers who justify the kale borroka. And we must remember that the party law holds those who encourage violence responsible” , assured the leader of the PP in a message published on his official Twitter profile. He was referring to the outlawing of parties that justify the violence contained in the law that he cited and that served in the past for justice to act against parties from the orbit of the nationalist left in the Basque Country.
The appeals to the party law to be used against United We Can arrived this Monday to the internal arguments of the PP, the slogans that Casado’s leadership sends every morning to all the positions of the party so that they repeat them in all their public appearances. “The Law of Parties prevents legitimizing violence,” asks the leadership of the PP to insist on those internal texts to which elDiario.es has had access.
“It is incomprehensible that those who have made intolerance their way of understanding politics are part of the Government. The problem has a name: Pedro Sánchez, who maintains in the Government those who legitimize violence, now for the sixth consecutive night. Our legislation does not protects those behaviors. The Party Law holds those who encourage violence responsible. Zero tolerance with those who intend to dynamite our coexistence. When the 40th anniversary of the 23F is fulfilled, we vindicate our constitutional model more than ever, “those arguments argue.
What the party law says
Along the same lines this Monday, first thing in the morning, the general secretary of the PP, Teodoro García Egea, assured in an interview on the Cope chain that Unidos Podemos “protects those who promote violence.” That is why it was ugly “that the Government defends a convicted rapper more than a hotelier or a freelancer.” The ‘number two’ of the PP has therefore urged Sánchez to “put the sticker of the Government of Spain on the images of people setting fire to streets and breaking shop windows.” “If Sánchez has problems with his coalition government, he will have to solve it himself because it was not difficult to venture them with the partners with whom he has embarked,” he has settled.
In its article 9, the party law approved in 2002 establishes that “a political party will be declared illegal when its activity violates democratic principles, particularly when it seeks to deteriorate or destroy the regime of freedoms or make it impossible or eliminate the democratic system, through any of the following behaviors, carried out repeatedly and seriously “.
These behaviors, according to the regulations, are: “Systematically violate fundamental freedoms and rights, promoting, justifying or exonerating attacks against the life or integrity of people, or the exclusion or persecution of people because of their ideology, religion or beliefs, nationality, race, sex or sexual orientation, promote, promote or legitimize violence as a method to achieve political objectives or to eliminate the precise conditions for the exercise of democracy, pluralism and political freedoms “; and “complement and politically support the action of terrorist organizations to achieve their goals of subverting the constitutional order or seriously altering the public peace, trying to subject public powers, certain persons or groups of society to a climate of terror. or the population in general, or contribute to multiplying the effects of terrorist violence and the fear and intimidation generated by it “.
