300 people demonstrate in Canet de Mar (Barcelona) against 25% of Spanish

About 300 people demonstrate this Friday afternoon near the Turó del Drac school in Canet de Mar (Barcelona) against the ruling of the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) that has set 25% of Spanish after the complaint of the family of a student.

The march, called by the Sindicat d’Estudiants dels Països Catalans (SEPC) and the Intersindical · CSC union, began in Font del Drac, in a park near the school, and is heading towards the center of the coastal town.

The national spokesperson of the SEPC, Marta Daviu, has demanded that the Government not leave the fulfillment of the sentence in the hands of the centers and has called for the “disobedience” of the Ministry, students and teachers.

In turn, in statements to Europa Press, the spokesperson for the Intersindical · CSC Bernat Pèlach has asked the Department to “seek strategies to avoid having to comply with this sentence” without putting the management at risk, even considering assuming direct control of the center.

The Minister of Education of the Generalitat, Josep Gonzàlez-Cambray, visited the center on Thursday to accompany his management and that he had “all the tools to see how he applies these precautionary measures”, and insisted that the decision of the TSJC is directed directly to those responsible for the school.
