Thousands of Spanish Citizens Rise Up Against Socialist Open Borders Government
Demonstrators demand that Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez resigns
Tens of thousands of Spanish citizens have joined a rally demanding that Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez steps down following his 'open border' policies.
The rally on Sunday, which was organized by the center-right Citizens party and the conservative opposition Popular Party, saw thousands of demonstrators take to the streets demanding Sanchez resign for holding talks with separatists in the north-eastern region of Catalonia.
An estimated 45,000 people joined the protest, which marked the first time that the leaders of the conservative Popular Party (PP), centrist Ciudadanos and far-right Vox were photographed together, according to El País.
Conservatives and populists citizens united in the streets, calling for an end to the socialism and pro-open borders push by their leaders.
Vice President Carmen Calvo said the separatists would not move from their demand for an independence referendum, leading Sanchez’s government to break off negotiations with the Catalan separatists.
The highly charged political tensions come as -sensitive trial at Spain’s Supreme Court starts on Tuesday for 12 leaders of the Catalan separatists.
The separatists.are facing charges for rebellion for their roles in a failed secession attempt in 2017.
"The government of Sanchez's time is up," PP head Pablo Casado told reporters before the start of the rally.
According to rte.ie Sanchez came to rule in June with the support of Catalan nationalist parties, which voted with him in a no-confidence motion against former Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, whose PP party was embroiled in a corruption scandal.
Polls show that between them the PP, Ciudadanos, and Vox would win a majority if a general election were held today, giving them the combined parliamentary power to drive Mr. Sanchez from office.
Sánchez’s globalist government has been pushing propaganda through a PR campaign to mitigate claims of the pro-independence faction.
The prime minister argued that a clear separation of powers exists in Spain and that the judiciary is entirely independent of the government.
The prime minister visited the European court of human rights in Strasbourg to emphasize Spain’s dedication to the rule of law.
Sánchez said at a separate rally on Sunday that "the government is working for the unity of Spain, and this means uniting Spaniards and not pitting people against one another like the right is doing."
He added: "Democracy is not heads or tails, there are many alternatives. Ours is coexistence, law, and dialogue in Catalonia."
The uprising against globalism across Europe
Last December, Citizens across Sweden took to the streets to protest globalism and the UN Migration Pact.
The protesters also stood in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of French Yellow Vests.
The anti-globalist movement continues to sweep across Europe as populist parties gain more support.
