No member of the Govern nor the mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, will go this Sunday to the demonstration in Barcelona against the expansion of the Barcelona-El Prat airport convened by the Xarxa per la Justícia Climàtica and Zero Port platforms, sources from the Catalan Executive and the Barcelona City Council have explained. However, it is likely that other Barcelona councilors will attend in Comú.
The possible participation of members of the Government in this protest was one of the arguments used by the Government of Pedro Sánchez to suspend the investment agreed between the central Executive and the Generalitat to expand the Airport.
In fact, on September 7, the Government spokesperson, Patrícia Plaja, at a press conference stated that she did not rule out that some ‘councilor’ would participate in this demonstration: “I would not be surprised,” she said.
In addition, the deputy general secretary and ERC spokesperson, Marta Vilalta, pointed out that Republicans would participate in some way in this protest and He opened the door for one of his ‘councilors’ to attend the demonstration.
Finally none of the members of the Government will participate, although Yes, ERC representatives will go, as the ‘exconseller‘Raül Romeva, the deputy spokesperson in Parliament, Meritxell Serret, the MEP Diana Riba and other deputies and positions of the republicans.
