I don't think there will be a coalition. I expect he'll try to govern by consensus. Get the Catalan leaders out of chokey and get the charges reduced to something more realistic, repeal the mordaza law against assembly and protest, depoliticise the national radio and TV, step in to save the health and education budgets and call elections within twelve months.

Hopefully with Rajoy going this act will be repealed To view the link you have to Register or Login

Over the past two weeks, Catalonia has witnessed the arrests and court summons of 128 political activists, signalling a major escalation of the use of the Spanish state’s imposition of article 155 powers that it used to impose direct rule. You will not have seen this reported in the international press, since most of the recent arrests are not of well known politicians or internationally recognised campaigners. They are ordinary people, criminalised for participating in peacefully protests and strikes. And they remain defiant.

Tamara Carrasoco, from Barcelona, a CDR member accused of terrorism told us “I would do exactly the same things again. I was not using violence. I will only use methods that respect all people in order to seek change.”

Most of those arrested are accused of public order offences for peaceful protests during a one day general strike last November that blocked motorways and occupied railway stations. Those arrests signal a growing concern that all forms of protest are being outlawed in Catalonia. There are already a number of people under investigation for involvement in the protests against the arrest of former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont last March.

In order to criminalise peaceful protest, the Spanish state has stretched the definition of ‘crime’ to the limits of credibility. It’s even gone so far as to invent a new crime: ‘hate crimes against the police’. Firefighters have been accused of such supposed hate crimes for marching in protest at a hotel in which police were barracked. And teachers have been accused of hate crimes for daring to discuss the issue of police violence in classrooms full of children who witnessed the scenes of the 1st October referendum.

This new wave of repression focuses on ordinary people rather than the figure heads of the movement. This is part of a very deliberate strategy that is intended to spread fear across a self-determined movement. The imprisonment of the main leaders of the movement – such as Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sánchez – was the first stage in this strategy. The second stage is the persecution of anonymous activists based in the communities. In many ways, this represents a new kind of repression. The main targets now are the Committees to Defend the Republic (CDRs).

The CDRs are a network of community-based grassroots organisations that co-ordinate political action in support of political prisoners, and against the imposition of section 155 which would see the Spanish central government take direct control of Catalonia. They grew out of the mass movement that emerged to defend the polling stations against the Spanish National Police last Autumn. The CDRs have also been involved in exploring how a new Catalonia can develop social and economic alternatives to the austerity policies imposed by Rajoy’s government.

You don’t half find some stupid media. The mordaza law wasn’t introduced for Catalans. It was to repress peaceful protest everywhere and introduced by Rajoy long before the latest sprouting of independentism.
Sanchez announced its repeal yesterday, he’ll have the votes to do it.

And Rajoy has already announced the lifting of the 155, before the confidence motion was proposed. Which is a separate issue, entirely.
