(en) cgt-lkn: General secretary of CGT in Catalonia detained for convening a press conference in 2013

Date Sun, 11 Mar 2018 10:08:44 +0200

UAB professor and trade unionist Ermengol Gassiot has been arrested on the morning of February 27. He is accused of organizing the rector's occupation in 2013 for having convened a press conference against cuts in the University. ---- The union CGT de Catalunya announced after 12 noon that the Mossos d'Esquadra have arrested Ermengol Gassiot, general secretary of the organization. Gassiot, who has been arrested along with another militant of the union, is accused by the occupation of the rectorate of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), in April 2013 and was in search and capture since he was not presented to a judicial summons for the known as Case Som 27 i Month ---- The prosecution accuses Gassiot, professor at the UAB, of having convened a press conference during the days when the rectorship was occupied by students. Gassiot had warned the court that he was not going to present himself at the trial, and that he would maintain his usual activity.

In an interview published yesterday, February 26, by El Salto , the secretary of this anarcho-syndicalist union recalled that the course 2012/2013, when the closure took place, there had been increases in the rates -of up to 65% in the UAB-, farewell faculty, increased precariousness, and began the implementation of private businesses in the University.

In these circumstances, approximately 150 people, mostly students, occupied the hall of the rectorship. The reprisals on the part of the university management and the zeal of the prosecution resulted in requests for sentences of between 11 and 14 years in prison for 27 accused (25 students, an employee of the UAB and Gassiot himself).

CGT Catalunya has called a solidarity rally in the police station of Les Corts, in Barcelona.
