(en) Embat position on the new government and the constitutional process Press releases (ca) [machine translation]

Together pact between the SI and CUP-CC has allowed the appointment as Chairman of the Government of Charles Puigdemont (JxS CDC) within hours of the deadline for the ---- nomination. ---- In recent days the events hurried and ran tension, insults and disqualifications agree cooked in closed meetings. This agreement continues to advance the so-called disconnection process, something in which both parties agree. Also upheld the "not in March or More" which was raised from the Left of Independence. However, other gaps and uncertainties remain. ---- The Government disappear Mas Rigau Ruiz Puig ... but most of all, by those who enter have much experience partisan blocs in Parliament as to be alien to active (CDC) or support ( ERC) policies of social cuts, privatization, repression of is social responses and union ...

In the investiture debate, almost traced to other previous Mas, nothing materialized in terms of social policy. As a very general and vague reference that independence will improve the living conditions of Catalonia and Catalans.

So bad piece loom, with a majority government continuity of public efforts devoted to advertising and disconnection, and meanwhile, antisocial policies covered in the same fiscal mistreatment in Spain.

In recent times there are enough people on the left and anti-capitalist social movements indicating the "glass ceiling" of popular movements (which reach a capacity limit of call) and idealizing institutional participation (subjecting them to certain controls). The experience of recent weeks is another sign that the institutions and which the control for many years are not neutral and play a game in which others have put rules and can change what have not they want to be our main field of activity.

From Embat again emphasize the districts and towns in jobs in the cultural associations and cooperatives, feminism, environmentalism in daily life ... in solidarity and internationalism of peoples. The Parliaments respond to the same dynamic as ever: to consolidate and strengthen the rule of class. Our main task should be to contribute to the self-organization of the popular classes and boosting their demands and struggles and, ultimately, to the creation of popular power.

To create popular power to make clear that we need to establish mechanisms for a "popular institutions" the legitimacy of the debate and proposals resulting from low root of effective coordination between social movements, trade unions, residents, politicians ... We need to create a popular movement that can have a powerful voice in this "constitutional process" that begins with the new legislature.

The claim, construction and defense of the sovereignty of our people that need only be feasible by building an autonomous social space, the widest possible dedicated to thi sta task than mere stooge of one of the institutions enemy.

We need meetings and various social and popular movements at all levels, both to discuss how to decide the lines to follow to create a new country and the masses of Catalonia leaving this task in the hands of Parliament.
