Several hundred people have gathered around the Congress of Deputies this Saturday night, some of them with tentsto protest against the amnesty law and in favor of judicial independence and electoral reform.
Despite being evicted shortly before 1:00 a.m. on Sunday, the protesters have promised that this Sunday they will return to the vicinity of Congress to try to camp, something they intend to do “until the rules of the political game are clean.” .
This afternoon a demonstration called at 7:30 p.m. by the association Democratic Junta of Spain has gathered around 500 people in the Carrera de San Jerónimo, according to data from the Government Delegationof which several hundred have remained there and have continued protesting until after midnight.
The president of the association, Ruben Gisberthas asked in statements to the press for the independence of the judicial system and a voting system like the French one.
“What has to change is not the faces, but something really substantial in the political regime. If we directly elect our president as happens in France, this would not happen; if there were judicial independence, if the judges were not chosen by the political power , they would answer for their actions when they make mistakes and become corrupt,” he claimed.
