(en) Catalunia, Embat: We break the ice with the heat of the fight (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Four years have passed since 2017 and the current political climate is completely different. The Government of the Generalitat is based on an agreement with the State to guarantee governance in Spain and Catalonia in exchange for a dialogue table that has never been finalized. ---- The real-politik of ERC and JxC, or rather, the lack of commitment to the result of the 1-O contrasts with the popular aspirations, which recall that there are 52% of Catalan voters who have supported the pro-independence parties in the last election. That is, that there is justification for lifting the suspension of the proclamation of independence on October 27, but that it is not carried out due to the pact between ERC and the PSOE of Pedro Sánchez.

We understand that what is behind these delays is nothing but fear. The leading cadres of independence are afraid of state repression, which we have already seen manifested in many ways (judicial, police, institutional or, if necessary, military). We fully understand that the state will not allow a separation for the good and that any attempt will make us pay dearly. That is why they want to "expand the base" of independence, trying to drag the Commons. Però a l'inrevés, hem vist com els Comuns/Podemos o el PSC aposten per un pacte d'unitat nacional espanyola totalment impermeable als cants de sirena dels republicans catalans.

On the other hand, self-determination and sovereignty are being taken to a strictly formal and institutional ground from a political point of view. Four years later the popular aspirations for sovereignty (food, energy, politics...) and to decide everything have been cornered by the juggling of institutional politics. An institutional policy (the one exercised by the Generalitat and the Parliament) that does not mark substantial differences with those of the State or the EU as far as the empowerment of the public services, the improvement of the living conditions of the people, the extension of social and labor rights, etc.

We, from the libertarian perspective that moves us, understand that the only way to broaden the base is through conflict .

I'll see a state Spanish corrupt, authoritarian and essentially unfair in 2017 caused many people on the left to support Catalan self-determination.

The path of conflict involves moving forward. And everything must be organized to prepare for this conflict. On the other hand, we see that the Government of the Generalitat has not taken any steps in this direction. On the contrary, it is presented as a particular accusation against thousands of pro-independence activists in various criminal proceedings. Make no mistake, it is these delays that have frozen the process.

All this happens with a fascism in the offensive, who is no longer ashamed to show himself as he is. This situation has a positive side: the cards are on the table. In addition, the various far-right actions of the last year have raised the indignation of part of the population, which has also been polarized. It is not enough, fascism is not defeated at the polls but on the street. What is more important is to discover the hidden power of specific fascists in state institutions such as the judiciary, the police force or the army, a power that is protected by high-ranking PSOE officials. In essence, this situation highlights the construction of Spain under the regime of 1978 under the guidelines of the Franco regime.

That said, we are at the beginning of the 2021-2022 political course. The crisis of COVID-19 has further precarious the working conditions of the population and the increase in the supply of light or the lack of certain resources and supplies hint at an autumn of social crisis. The central government is preparing austerity measures and the Generalitat has no intention of contradicting this line. And the entire housing movement, and the vulnerable population, fears the tsunami of evictions delayed by the pandemic predicted for that time. That is, while the national question remains frozen, the social question returns to a very important boom.

Despite political or economic issues, we already have the climate crisis. This same summer we have witnessed the planetary disaster that human action is causing due to the consum
