Sala Prensa

In Sol on 27 mei 2011 at 09:09

Ik heb me officieel aangesloten bij ‘Communicatie’ om een bijdrage te kunnen leveren aan het verspreiden van nieuws over de ongehoorde gebeurtenissen hier in Spanje. Zojuist heb ik een journaliste uit Polen te woord gestaan die speciaal naar Madrid gekomen was om verslag te doen.

Vanochtend heeft de politie in Barcelona met geweld het kamp op Plaça de Catalunya ontruimd. Er zijn honderd gewonden gevallen. De manifestanten hebben het plein direct weer bezet. Ik heb net het persbericht hierover in het Engels vertaald. Het is inmiddels de wereld in gezonden. Zie bijvoegsel.
Ik blijf jullie op de hoogte houden.

Groet,

Oscar

PRESS RELEASE

Today 27 May at 7 AM riot police have proceeded to evacuate the peaceful gatherings of citizens demanding a society in which human values prevail over economical and political interests. The evacuations took place in the Catalan cities of Barcelona, Lleida and Badalona.

The evacuation of the Plaça de Catalunya in Barcelona was perpetrated with unprovoked brutality by police forces. From the Acampadasol gathering in Madrid we firmly codemn the way with which police units have acted. They have disgracefully violated the citizens’ freedoms of expression, demonstration and peaceful gathering which are fundamental human rights guaranteed by the Constitution. We call on all the other occupied squares in Spain to join us in this condemnation.

The people camped in Barcelona’s Plaça de Catalunya have responded to the brutal actions of riot police through peaceful resistance. At least 99 citizens are reported to have been wounded in the unprovoked attack.

After the evacuation of the camp, police forces have taken away computers with which citizens’ opinions have been collected, furniture, and food that has been voluntarily donated by the citizens of Barcelona. Immediately after police forces had lifted the cordon around the square the Plaza de Catalunya has once again been occupied by thousands of protesters who had remained in the surroundings. We can confirm that at 3 PM today over 3000 people had begun rebuilding the camp.

From the Barcelona encampment three major gatherings have been called for today:

– At 5 PM: Gathering at the statue of Columbus.

– At 7 PM: Massive gathering in the Plaça de Catalunya

– At 9 PM: Pan bashing in Plaça de Catalunya

We confirm that also in Lleida there have been confrontations following the evacuation of the encampment in Plaza Ricard Vinyes at 7 AM this morning. As a result of this two people have been arrested. Both have been released shortly after. A new gathering has been called for in the same square at 7 PM this evening. The Plaça de la Vila in Badalona has also been evacuated.

Confronted with these evacuations, the Acampada Sol has called for a manifestation of soldarity to be held in the Puerta del Sol square this evening at 7 PM.
