For IU-Greens Cieza, in the words of its representatives, "the bill aims to silence and silence citizens through fear and coercion, which unfortunately reminds us undemocratic other times in the history of Spain."
Illueca asks "Where is democracy when fundamental rights and freedoms established in the Spanish Constitution are limited, as are those of association and assembly, with the sole intention of discouraging citizens to protest freely when we disagree with the actions of government. "
To this council, "this is what is intended with the new Public Safety Act, criminalizing social mobilization as a strategy to avoid protests antisocial cuts the current government is pursuing and presenting a reverse decades and distort social and democratic state, which denounces our Constitution. "
In your opinion, from the entry into force of the new law, if it is finally written in the set terms, "when a person is raised out to the streets to protest cuts in their pension, health copayment for the status of dependents, cuts in health or education or many other unjust attacks on social rights that are our daily bread, even more fear in his mind end up being punished with a million dollar fine to the righteous indignation, and therefore desist from joining the protest. "
In addition, "according to the complaint platform in Defense of Democratic Freedoms, the final text of the draft bill has skipped several steps mandatory and has not gone through the General Council of the Judiciary and the Fiscal Council, as is required . Place to society in a defenseless position and increases the authority of law enforcement, "he explained Illueca.
"Another aspect incomprehensible" continues in its analysis the eco-socialist councilor, "is that criminalizes peaceful protests 'domicile of a legal or private person' and 'obstruction of authority in the execution of administrative or judicial decisions' as in evictions, so there is no doubt that this is a law made to the letter to criminalize new forms of social mobilization that do not like those who govern. "
Penalties of up to 600,000 euros, "imposed, for example, in relation to unauthorized in the Congress of Deputies concentrations are quite disproportionate and complete nonsense."
In the words of Illueca, "call security to impose limits on freedom has been a common practice of the authorities, often conceal the intention of silencing the right of people to be able to say these powers what, precisely, not want to hear, it is obvious that the safety of the people must be protected and for that every State provides criminal and administrative rules, but in a democratic society these pathways can not be used against those criticizing government action, they are having a fundamental right.
