«From La Moncloa to TVE … everyone is involved in the coup against Spain, against its King and against its Constitution. They gag the King and give loudspeakers to fugitive coup leaders. They don’t even hide anymore. They will pay for their crimes. They deserve jail », wrote the leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, on his Twitter account. “They veto the Head of State and give the floor on TVE to a fugitive from Justice for Sedition,” said journalist and former professor Antonio Robles.

An insult to the constitutional Catalans and to the whole of the Spanish ”. The constitutional entity Catalan Civil Society He has also joined in the criticism and has assured that Puigdemont has a voice in the public media despite having “promoted and led” an “institutional insurrection.” We are playing with fire. And we will burn.
