• Catalonia The independence movement revolts against Oriol Junqueras to the cry of "traitor"

  • Diada 2021 Aragonès boasts of sitting the Government at the independence table

first Diada

after the

pardons to the prisoners of 1-O

, the independence movement is expected to mobilize.

And it will do so with an eye on the dialogue table between the Generalitat of Catalonia and the Government, scheduled for next week, which generates tensions and discrepancies between the parties and entities favorable to the independence of Catalonia.

The focus

will be on the

Barcelona demonstration

called by the ANC, which this year has the motto 'Lluitem i guanyem la independeència' ('Let's fight and win independence') and will now be a march to use unlike in recent years, more characterized by massive and static mobilizations that sought to fill large spaces in which they carried out some type of 'performance'.

that independence will be achieved by fighting from the mobilization of citizenship

together with the action of the institutions, and in recent days the Government and the pro-independence parties have defended that it should serve to once again demonstrate the "strength" of the sovereign movement.

is the only actor that clearly bets on the table,


constantly criticizes it although it participates in it,

the CUP

does not believe in the dialogue strategy despite the fact that it agreed with the Republicans to give it a two-year margin, and the


has taken a position against it.

has been installed


a xenophobic group that promises on its website to promote "immigration policies that benefit Catalans, not foreigners". and they defend a "policy of zero tolerance with citizen insecurity, Islamic radicalism and terrorism."

Beltrán has also described as a "more humiliation for all Spaniards" the dialogue table between the central government and the Generalitat of Catalonia scheduled for next week.

The phrase, from the leader of Vox in Catalonia,

Garriga thus closed a conference of the Foundation for the Defense of the Spanish Nation (DENAES) which, under the title 11-S: between myth and manipulation, has served Vox to question the very existence of the Diada on this 11th of September.

Not in vain, the proposal of the

Santiago Abascal party,

which has not joined any institutional act, involves celebrating the Day on an alternative date, reports

Noa de la Torre.

11.05 El independentismo se revuelve contra Oriol Junqueras al grito de "traidor"

Malos augurios para ERC, que afronta esta Diada como un examen al liderazgo de Pere Aragonès y a su apuesta cerrada por entablar una negociación con el Gobierno para pactar un referéndum de independencia.

Anoche, en el arranque de su primer 11 de septiembre ser excarcelado, el líder de los republicanos, Oriol Junqueras, fue abucheado por los independentistas congregados para honrar a los fallecidos en la Guerra de Sucesión con la habitual marcha de antorchas que da inicio a la Diada. Fue recibido el indultado al grito de «botifler» (traidor) en el Fossar de les Moreres, cripta de los caídos en la batalla contra las tropas borbónicas, y por ende uno de los lugares más simbólicos para los promotores de la causa.

10.50 Aragonès se jacta de sentar al Gobierno en la mesa de la independencia

Afronta Pere Aragonès una semana decisiva para su mandato cuando todavía no ha cumplido cuatro meses en el cargo. Tras enterrar el Gobierno la millonaria inversión de El Prat, el presidente de la Generalitat teme que también la mesa de negociación sobre el «conflicto» zozobre, lo que supondría ver demolido el puntal sobre el que el dirigente de ERC decidió edificar la legislatura.

Y es que a estas alturas, parece que Aragonès expresa más un deseo que un hecho fehaciente, pues el Gobierno sigue sin confirmar su presencia a la cita, ni mucho menos la de Pedro Sánchez, a quien el president reclama para conceder a la cumbre el empaque necesario.

10.29 Sociedad Civil Catalana: "La Diada de hoy es el funeral de un Procés agotado y tóxico"

Sociedad Civil Catalana asegura que la Diada de 2021 "es el funeral cívico de un proceso tóxico y agotador, que ha cortado las alas de Cataluña durante los últimos diez años". El presidente de la entidad, Fernando Sánchez Costa, ha valorado así en Terrassa la fiesta de Cataluña. "Los catalanes han desconectado del Proceso independentista, porque saben que es sinónimo de declive económico y social. La desmovilización independentista que vemos hoy convierte esta Diada en una especie de ceremonia de despedida de un movimiento sin recorrido".

Para la asociación constitucionalista, el fiasco del Prat es la gota que colma el vaso. "Los líderes independentistas llevan años comportándose con una gran irresponsabilidad e infantilismo. A ellos les hacen mucha gracia sus operetas, pero fuera las cosas van en serio". Sánchez Costa ha recordado que la inseguridad jurídica y el caos político se pagan siempre con la pérdida de inversiones y puestos de trabajo. "El Procés nos ha robado una década y ha impedido el despegue de Cataluña en el siglo XXI".

10.20 El independentismo se moviliza este sábado por la Diada con la vista puesta en la mesa de diálogo

El independentismo se movilizará este sábado con motivo de la Diada del 11 de Septiembre y lo hará con la vista puesta en la mesa de diálogo entre la Generalitat y el Gobiernoprevista para la semana que viene, que genera tensiones y discrepancias entre los partidos y entidades favorables a la independencia de Cataluña.

Después de que el año pasado fuera la Diada más rebajada de los últimos años a causa de las restricciones por la pandemia del coronavirus, en esta ocasión se celebrará ya con más normalidad pero todavía condicionada por las limitaciones de la Covid-19.

El foco estará en la manifestación de Barcelona convocada por la ANC, que este año tiene como lema 'Lluitem i guanyem la independència' ('Luchemos y ganemos la independencia') y será ahora una marcha al uso a diferencia de los últimos años, más caracterizados por movilizaciones masivas y estáticas que buscaban llenar grandes espacios en los que realizaban algún tipo de 'performance'.

La manifestación, que se podrá celebrar porque el Govern ha levantado a partir de este viernes las restricciones a la reunión de personas, comenzará en plaza Urquinaona, donde hubo grandes disturbios tras la sentencia del 1-O. Bajará por la Via Laietana, pasando por delante de la Comisaría de la Policía Nacional, y terminará frente a la Estació de França, donde se celebrará un acto con las intervenciones de los presidente de la ANC, Elisenda Paluzie; de Òmnium, Jordi Cuixart, y de la AMI, Jordi Gaseni.

Está previsto que asistan los principales dirigentes de ERC y Junts, así como el presidente de la Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, la mayoría de consellers del Govern y la presidenta del Parlament, Laura Borràs, mientras que por parte de la CUP estará la presidenta del grupo del Parlament, Dolors Sabater.

Para la entidad convocante, esta manifestación busca evidenciar que la independencia se conseguirá luchando desde la movilización de la ciudadanía junto a la acción de las instituciones, y en los últimos días desde el Govern y los partidos independentistas han defendido que debe servir para volver a demostrar la "fortaleza" del movimiento soberanista.

However, it is foreseeable that the differences that exist in the face of the dialogue table will be made visible, which the independence movement faces divided:


is the only actor that clearly bets on the table,


constantly criticizes it although it participates in it,

the CUP

does not believe in the dialogue strategy despite the fact that it agreed with the Republicans to give it a two-year margin, and the


has taken a position against it.
