The Executive Board of the Party of the European Left met today in Brussels and expressed its solidarity with the mobilisation called by the Junta estatal republicana at 20h in all villages and cities of Spain to demand a referendum on the model of political regime.
The EL strongly supports the demand of a constituent process leading to a Third Republic.
King Juan Carlos of Spain has just abdicated in favor of his son, Prince Felipe. Given the crisis in the country and the results of the political parties that support the monarchy at the last European elections, it is not crowned heads but the type of regime that must change.
The Party of the European Left supports the efforts of the Communist Party of Spain, of the United Left and EUIA who legitimately claim a referendum to allow the Spanish people to choose their future.
A peaceful European demonstration has gathered more than 1.000 people from different countries in order to say no to the austerity policies which are destructive for the societies as well as no to the transatlantic treaty which consequences for the peoples will be very serious from a social, sanitary, ecological and democratic point of view. While the "Business Summit" discusses our future in all opacity, the peaceful demonstrators are subjected to a scandalous repression.
