IU-green claims that "the Department of Public Safety impede the right of assembly and demonstration" (22/05/2012)

Jose Garcia Murcia, councilman-Green IU spokesman said, in relation to the events yesterday in concentration in defense of public education, the Department of Public Safety has acted wholly disproportionate and arbitrary with the clear intention of hindering the legitimate exercise of a fundamental right to citizens by the Constitution.

In the mentioned concentration involved in "dangerous" members of the educational community (teachers and teachers, parents, teens and children), which took place peacefully and without incident and had been previously communicated to the Government Office, to appropriate purposes, local police officers prevented the placement of two small desks that posed no obstacle to road and wanted to use to collect signatures in support of public education, forcing the organizers to remove even under threat detention.

Similarly, the council has declared that the officers forced some of the protesters, who were in a totally peaceful and not be suspected of causing public altercations, to identify with the DNI, under threat of transfer to the offices of the Commissioner if not obeyed the order.

For Garcia Murcia, law enforcement was completely disproportionate, arbitrary and unjustifiable, and has accused the political responsibility, the Councillor for security, impeding the exercise right to assembly and peaceful demonstration of citizens, introducing fallacious arguments such as lack of permission by the Local Government Board for the installation of tables, which for the council shows the true underlying political intention, since this permit is not required for placement above a few simple tables desks by way of information, which remember, posed no obstacle for pedestrians and constituted a very slight occupation of public space.

García Murcia has referred to some statements that show the wrong police action yesterday, under orders strict policies that threatened serious injury to the rights of citizens.

This is established in court three examples:

The Judgment number 195/2003 of 27 October the Constitutional Court in its ninth legal basis, "regarding the governmental ban to install tables and a tent in the place of concentration. It should be noted that the exercise of freedom of assembly by its very nature, requires the use of public places. In a democratic society, urban space is not only an area of ​​circulation, but also a space for participation, and therefore, the prohibition to build tables or shop campaign by meeting with virtuality for the exhibition and exchange of messages and ideas can not be justified on mere difficulty or inconvenience to the simple movement of people traveling there.

A governmental ban installing tables at the time and place of concentration, we must conclude that there was a disproportionate restriction of the fundamental right of peaceful assembly and public transit instead.

To that limited extent the applicant for protection and others who were to concentrate were virtually deprived of effective means for the issuance and exchange of messages and ideas whose diffusion was the legitimate purpose of the demonstration. "

Other examples are the Judgment of 17 December 2010, rec.

1978/2010 the High Court of Justice of Castile and Leon in Valladolid, and the Judgment number 101/2011 of 18 February the High Court of Justice of Madrid.

Therefore, from IU-Green requested that the public safety councilor offer public explanations about the questionable police action against civil rights and also require clarification of the facts in the next full City, as the facts show a clear policy failure the Councillor to exercise their responsibilities in a democratic state and law.
