• Protests Police justify the use of tear gas in Ferraz in front of ultras with iron bars and officers demand the dismissal of the government delegate
  • The PP calls for peaceful protests "so that Sánchez does not manage to divert attention from his indecency" and the PSOE accuses him of not overcoming his defeat after 11-M

The PP has already chosen the squares in which it will gather on Sunday, at 12:00 noon, against the amnesty for the crimes of the procés. The popular have summoned citizens in almost all the provincial capitals of Spain. In Madrid, the chosen place is the Puerta del Sol, and in Barcelona they will join the protest organized by 40 civil society entities in Plaça Sant Jaume, headquarters of the Generalitat.

This act will also be joined by the PP of Girona, Tarragona and Lleida, because Genoa wants to centralise all its Catalan mobilisation in a single enclave.

In addition, as EL MUNDO has learned, in Seville the event will be held in the Plaza de San Francisco, in the heart of the old town. In Valencia, the chosen place is the Plaza del Temple, next to the Turia Gardens. In Zaragoza, the event is between the streets of Alfonso I and Santiago. That is, right next to the Plaza del Pilar.

The choice of these enclaves has been marked by the possibility that they will "overflow", as has happened so far in the rallies of this party against amnesty, which have been held on weekends in Santiago, Madrid, Toledo, Malaga and Valencia.

In A Coruña, the protest will take place in the Méndez Núñez Gardens, and in Valladolid, in the Plaza Mayor. In Toledo, the land of the only socialist baron critical of the amnesty, Emiliano García-Page, the Popular Party will cry out against the "privileges" of the independence movement in the iconic Plaza de Zocodover. In Vitoria, the Plaza de los Celedones de Oro.

The PP wants all these "concentrations" to be "massive", but "peaceful". Alberto Núñez Feijóo's party thus distances themselves from the demonstrations that are taking place in front of the headquarters of the PSOE, supported by Vox, and which ended on Monday with altercations and tear gas.

"We are never going to call for a demonstration at the headquarters of any party," sources from the 'popular' leadership said on Tuesday, to scare Vox for its participation in these events.

In Genoa they do not want the focus to be diverted from amnesty to the development of the protests, because that would benefit the socialists: "The way to protest against the undignified negotiations of the PSOE is to do it in a way that Pedro Sánchez does not manage to divert attention from his indecency," they said in a statement.

The secretary general of the main opposition party to the caretaker government, Cuca Gamarra, said at a press conference in Congress that "there are actions that in themselves are condemnable", and added that there is also a discomfort "that the demonstrators have the right to be able to express". "The call we make is for the exercise of freedom of expression" to be channeled in the squares and always in an authorized manner.

In the National Board of Directors of the PP, Feijóo announced this strategy of cluster-concentrations, in all the capitals except those mentioned. "On November 12 we will be in the squares of all the capitals of Spain remembering that we are a democracy and a rule of law," he said. "On the 12th, at 12 noon", the PP will say that "no one disputes that Spain is a democracy, but a democracy without the rule of law is a hollow democracy".

In addition, Feijóo will be at the "great demonstration called by civil society" on the 18th in the Plaza de Cibeles, in Madrid: "We will show that Spain will remain united and that they will never be able to buy Spanish society," he said. "We're going to keep going, they're not going to silence us, they're not going to silence us, and they're not going to stop us."
