Feijóo and ‘barons’ protest in Madrid against Sánchez’s amnesty


News Team

On November 12, 2023, in Madrid, Spain, a rally was held at Puerta del Sol, with the participation of several prominent figures including the former president of the Government José María Aznar, the president of the Community of Madrid and the PP of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, the president of the Madrid Assembly, Enrique Ossorio, and the PP deputy Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo. This rally was organized by the Popular Party (PP) to protest the investiture agreement between the PSOE and Junts, which included a possible amnesty law.

The PP has been organizing rallies across Spain to protest the investiture agreement, with the aim of expressing their opposition to the amnesty law and the concessions made by Pedro Sánchez’s Executive to the independentistas. The leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, along with regional presidents of the party, have been actively involved in these protests. They have raised concerns about the implications of the amnesty law and accused Sánchez of making concessions to Catalan politicians.

The PP has been vocal in its opposition to the amnesty law, particularly after the latest pact between the PSOE and its partners, which they believe has shielded certain groups from prosecution. They have emphasized that terrorism should not be forgiven or covered up, and have criticized the government’s approach to the issue.

The PP’s protests against the government have highlighted the growing divide between the PSOE and the PP in this legislature. Despite this, there have been efforts to negotiate and renew the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) through the mediation of the European Commission.

In January 2024, Feijóo announced an “all-out” legal, social, and political offensive against the PSOE agreements with Junts and the “extortion” to which, in his opinion, Pedro Sánchez subjects Spain. He has called for continued protests to maintain pressure on the government and has involved territorial officials and regional presidents of the PP in these efforts.

The PP has been successful in mobilizing its supporters and has received the support of mayors and councilors from various regions. However, there have been disagreements with other political parties, such as Vox, which has chosen not to support the PP’s protests against the amnesty law.

The recent rally in Madrid was the fourth protest organized by the PP against the amnesty law and Sánchez’s negotiations with the independentists. The party has been actively involved in organizing and supporting demonstrations against the law, with the aim of expressing public opposition to the government’s policies.

Overall, the PP’s protests against the amnesty law have been a significant part of their political strategy, as they seek to mobilize public support and pressure the government to reconsider its approach to the issue. The party has been successful in organizing large-scale demonstrations and has received the support of prominent figures, highlighting the growing opposition to the government’s policies.
