The Spanish people do not want to stop being one “nation of free and equal citizens”. This was said by the leader of the People's Party (PP), Alberto Nunez Feijoo, during the demonstration that the PP called in Madrid against the hypothesis of amnesty for the Catalan independentists that the leader of United for Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, requested in change of support for the reinvestment of Pedro Sanchez as prime minister. The event was also attended, among others, by former prime ministers Jose Maria Aznar and Mariano Rajoy, as well as the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, and the mayor of the capital, Jose Luis Martínez Almeida. “
The Spaniards did not vote for a change in the constitutional regime", warned Feijoo, who on 26 and 27 September will present himself for the debate at the Congress of Deputies for his investiture as president, plausibly doomed to failure. In front of tens of thousands of supporters, Feijoo underlined that the PP "will not give up its principles to get to government at any cost" and will defend the fact that Spain is "a collection of free and equal citizens". In this sense, he indicated that Pedro Sanchez "will pass", but what remains is what they do. “It's up to him to decide how he wants to be remembered in the history of our country,” continued the popular representative.
The demonstration organized by the People's Party against the possible granting of amnesty to the Catalan independentists by the outgoing government of Pedro Sanchez began with the participation of thousands of people in Plaza Felipe II in Madrid. The People's Party have announced that they will defend "the equality of all Spaniards and all territories." Among the slogans chanted by the demonstrators "Puigdemont in prison" (former president of Catalonia and leader of United for Catalonia).
