"Ens estem enfrontant als hereus del franquisme. Els alts funcionaris, l’aparell policial, la Guàrdia Civil, el Tribunal Suprem, l’Audiència espanyola, tot això, en el fons i a la superfície, paga peatges dels pactes de la transició". Llegiu @ClaraPonsati! https://t.co/Z47ik9btv8

Imprescindible @quimarrufat, de la 1a paraula a l’última, “amb el cap clar que la batalla que lliurarem és una batalla de majories socials i democràtiques contra un règim que se sosté en la violència, el control mediàtic i la persecució política”.https://t.co/mhqMIVoUVe

It's Trans Day of Remembrance. It's important to remember senseless murders of trans people. Also to remember how days like this are used for lobbying ends. And that the UK has no day of remembrance for murdered females. https://t.co/fVY244O2oE (Stats from GIRES and ONS)
