#LeyMordaza: Alegando terrorismo, Espanha rompe com democracia e volta a Idade das Trevas

mordazaO Congresso Espanhol acabou de aprovar tres leis que são um sonho de consumo de muios politicos brasileiros, a começar por uma turminha pernambucana chegada a arroubos autoritários e que tem urticária quando se trata de lidar com uma tal de democracia e movimentos sociais, o PSB.

Sob a justificativa de aprovação de uma nova lei anti-terrorismo e segurança do cidadão espanhol, foram aprovadas aberrações que preveem multas de até $30.000 euros ou prisão para quem

1. gravar ou fotografar policiais;
2. desobedecer ordem de autoridades;
3. ocupar bancos durante protestos;
4. não formalizar antecipadamente o protesto junto aos orgãos públicos competentes;
5. realizar assembleias em locais públicos;
6. reunir-se ou marcar encontros em frente ao Congresso;

Não bastasse tanto retrocesso,  as mudanças ainda permitem a proibição previa de qualquer protesto que o governo considere inoportuno.

Sobrou ate para o Greenpeace: uma das recomendações parece feita sob medida para bloquear os metodos de protestos da ONG, ao vedar a subida ou escalada em monumentos, prédios e veiculos.

Não sem razão ‪#‎LeyMordaza‬ está nos trend topics desde o inicio do dia e tem tudo para permanecer presente não so no twitter mas na vida de todos espanhóis.

Quem estes pessimos ventos não soprem pro lado de cá.

Spanish Congress Approves Draconian Laws Essentially Sending Spain Back to the Dark Ages

http://revolution-news.com/spanish-congress-approves-draconian-laws-essentially-sending-spain-back-to-the-dark-ages/

Yesterday three laws widely criticized by the opposition and human rights groups were approved in Spanish Congress. The Penal Code, the new Anti-Terror Law and the Law on Citizen Safety. The three new texts challenge freedom of expression in the streets and on the Internet. All three laws are scheduled to go into effect July 1, 2015.

Under the new Citizen Safety Law or Ley Mordaza (Gag Law) as human rights defenders have renamed it, public protests, freedoms of speech and the press and documenting police abuses will become crimes punishable by heavy fines and/or jail. Some key points on the Ley Mordaza:

  • Photographing or recording police – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
  • Peaceful disobedience to authority – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
  • Occupying banks as means of protest – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
  • Not formalizing a protest – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
  • For carrying out assemblies or meetings in public spaces – 100 to 600€ fine.
  • For impeding or stopping an eviction – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
  • For presence at an occupied space (not only social centers but also houses occupied by evicted families) – 100 to 600€ fine.
  • Police black lists for protesters, activists and alternative press have been legalized.
  • Meeting or gathering in front of Congress – 600 to 30.000€ fine.
  • Appealing the fines in court requires the payment of judicial costs, whose amount depends on the fine.
  • It allows random identity checks, allowing for racial profiling of immigrants and minorities.
  • Police can now carry out raids at their discretion, without the need for “order” to have been disrupted.
  • External bodily searches are also now allowed at police discretion.
  • The government can prohibit any protest at will, if it feels “order” will be disrupted.
  • Any ill-defined “critical infrastructure” is now considered a forbidden zone for public gatherings if it might affect their functioning.
  • There are also fines for people who climb buildings and monuments without permission. (This has been a common method of protest from organizations like Greenpeace.)

The Gag Law will also affect internet freedoms as tweets calling for demonstrations or protests may be subject to penalties and fines for organizers. While an individual user may not be considered “an organizer” it could also be construed to include anyone who disseminates a call to protest through any media, including social media.

“This is the worst cut of rights and freedoms since the Franco regime,” – Virginia Pérez Alonso, PDLI

As the Ley Mordaza makes it illegal to publish photos of the police or other authorities without permission, sharing those images on social media could also be considered a felony resulting in a fine up to 30,000 euros.
