Torra begins the 48-hour Sunday fast in solidarity with prisoners on hunger strike


The president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, plans to start fasting for 48 hours on Sunday in solidarity with political prisoners who are hungry, according to ACN. Last Saturday, there are four: JxCat Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Turull's deputies have started, and two days later Joaquim Forn and Josep Rull joined them.

The head of the Catalan executive will extend for 48 hours, until Tuesday. To kick off the complaint, Torra will participate in the "Dejun de Sarrià" which began this Friday with some "dejunators" of some people. On the other hand, Sunday afternoon will also visit the action of Montserrat. In fact, at this moment, the president's public agenda does not provide for an official act on Monday.

Torra did not participate on Thursday, the 40th anniversary of the Constitution, at the Caputxins de Sarrià closed in which deputies and sovereign entities met for a 24-hour fast and various activities related to non-violent struggle. He was traveling to Slovenia, from where he will return in the next few hours after having passed through Brussels at the presentation of the Council for the Republic.

In his speech, this Saturday, he claimed the role of prisoners on hunger strike and said that in Europe they "do not understand" how this could happen in Spain.

This Sunday, Torra will also meet the Minister of the Interior Miquel Buch, following the crisis with the Mossos d'Esquadra for accusations of the Catalan police in Girona and Terrassa on Thursday. Torra called on Slovenia to take immediate steps to prevent the same situation from being repeated, which has challenged the agents questioning themselves. During the demonstrations, the Mossos accused the separatist protesters who had concentrated against the meeting of the Vox militants to celebrate the Constitution. There were clashes that put an end to 41 wounded, an inmate and several policemen need medical assistance.
