Lluc Gayà, Endavant spokesman has denounced that an operation is underway to reform the State
The protesters, among whom were the CUP deputies in the Parliament Xavier Pellicer and Basha Changuerra, have concentrated at the crossroads between Ferran Street and Rambla, from where they have advanced towards the police line, in Avinyó street, chanting slogans such as “Independence or submission”, “ERC and JxCat, patience has run out” or “Neither France nor Spain, Catalan Countries”.
Lluc Gayà, spokesman for Endavant, an organization integrated in the CUP, has denounced that “an operation to reform the State” is underway, which has “the approval of the autonomous governments” and ERC.
Sitting at a table “in which there is no talk of self-determination, amnesty, or referendum, is to benefit the path of State reform,” he added.
“The objective is the same: silence the independence struggle”
For her part, the spokeswoman for Arran, a youth organization linked to the CUP, Marina Gispert, has accused the State of having gone to the table without “the will to negotiate.”
“Although they make it appear that they want to dialogue and that they want to sit down and talk about the independence process, we know that the objective is the same: to silence the independence struggle and make us believe that everything we start in the streets can be closed in a conversation of offices ”, Pointed out Gispert.
