No less than 1,230,000 fines have been handed out in Spain against lockdown rule-breakers. No matter how the political and the on-message media elite try to spin it, people in Spain are challenging the lockdown in their millions.
The sugar-coated image is beginning to rub off to reveal a shabby bankrupt twin sister to Albania, the ex-Marxist regime bordering Greece.
In Spain during the lockdown, nothing is as it seems. On 23 May, tens of thousands of people, in over 50 towns and city centres across Spain, took to their cars to protest at the PSOE / Unidas Podemos Communist Coalition’s handling of the corona crisis.
Madrid, Barcelona, Cadiz, Cordoba, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca, Pamplona, Sevilla, Valladolid, Valencia, Zaragoza and others, which have been ghostly quiet for weeks, came momentarily back to life. The caravana (car cavalcade) was called by Vox, the right-wing populist party.
These protests, alongside numerous, spontaneous local street demonstrations, as well as the escrache (door-stepping) of transport minister, José Lois Ábalos, have been dismissed by liberal media hacks as little more than the work of the extreme right.
Spain’s largest English language newspaper, Euro Weekly News simply didn’t report on nationwide protests that recently engulfed the Spanish nation.
Press commentators ignore the significance of individual acts of dissent by millions of Spaniards every day, preferring instead to focus on the petty divisions of political parties in congress. However, the issuance of 15,000 fines every day of the 85-day lockdown suggests that the Madrid regime is woefully out of step with the workers.
A much clearer barometer of the national mood is illustrated best by a growing and identifiable public sentiment against lockdown. It is important to note that well over a million fines have been given out for breaching lockdown rules, and this is only the minority that got caught. But the political class and media commentaries have been at pains to rebrand all demonstrations of contempt towards the lockdown as anything but that.
The media reaction has followed a well-worn, pre-lockdown script. It is all about the so-called rise of ‘the extreme right’, in this view.
A recent five-day protest by scores of residents in the wealthy Salamanca barrio in central Madrid was dismissed in El Pais as a ‘revolt of the one per cent’. Pablo Echenique, of the anti-austerity Unidas Podemos, pushed a similar line, branding it a ‘demonstration of the upper class.’
VOX describes the deteriorating situation as ‘a protest against a communist’ and criminal government which has mismanaged the pandemic.
The Vox cavalcades were held in cars to respect social-distancing rules. The strategy failed when protesters in their tens of thousands left their cars in droves to continue the protest on foot.
Thanks to the on-message political and the media elite, there is no mainstream debate about the lockdown. The media’s contribution to the closing down of democracy has been to justify it.
But all dissent is framed in the Marxist media in such a way as to reinforce the ideology of lockdown. The crowds protesting are airily dismissed as a right-wing mob. But the legitimacy of Spain’s authoritarian lockdown ideology is being called into question by a dissenting public. This might prove to make a real difference in post-COVID Spain.
Throughout lockdown, the public has shown themselves to be brave in uncertain times, rational in aberrant circumstances, and rebellious in the face of an authoritarian lockdown ideology. People have shown they are capable of exercising both restraint and dissent at the times when it has mattered most. NOTE: Alex Cameron is a writer based in Madrid. Like this story?
