Left Cover for Repression by the Spanish State by France's Melenchon and Britain's Owen Jones the stinking corpse of Social Democracy

Democracy and Class Struggle says Frances's Melenchon and Britain's Owen Jones speak at the anti independence party Catalunya en Comu in Badalona located in Barcelona Province.

European Social Democracy is a stinking corpse providing left cover for the repressive Spanish Centralised State.

While we get the occasional left phraseology from the social democrats about right of nations to self determination - their determination is to oppose it and not lead it just like Melenchon and Owen Jones the stinking corpses of social democracy.

The Progressive Lawyer Juan Manuel Olarieta from the Basque Country speaks eloquently  about the domestic Spanish Revisionists and Social Democrats on the Question of Catalan Independence and his comments apply to those Social Democrats and  Revisionists from outside Spain as well like Melenchon amd Owen Jones.

"Like all charlatans, Garzón* confronts the working class with national rights, as if they were opposite things, to conclude that "the independence of Catalonia will not allow the popular classes to live better or emancipate themselves from capitalism," which is absolutely false.

What Garzon conceals is that Catalonia is a nation, so independence is one of so many democratic demands of the working class, the whole working class, including the Spanish working class, must not only support or sympathize, but must take charge and direct it , as any other just struggle directed against the State.

The whole effort of the social fascists, like Garzón and Izquierda Undida, is aimed precisely at preventing the working class from leading the struggle of Catalonia for its national demands, because it is precisely that, to leave it in the hands of the bourgeoisie, then accuse to the nationalist movement of "bourgeois", which for the "left" demagogues must be something like the plague.

Not only "the bourgeois" is always oblivious to "the worker" but must appear to be confronted in any circumstance. That is the short sketch that about the class struggle have in their head the types like Gazon.

Naturally, this shabby schema extends it to its notion of "internationalism" which, in the same mechanical way, considers it as opposed to "nationalism", a label distributed to a broad mass movement. In case those subjects have never traveled to Catalonia, they should see photos of the popular mobilizations that are everywhere, where the struggle has reached a scale typical of any national movement.

The social-fastidious geeks must learn that in such a broad national movement not only nationalists participate, but all of them. Or have they not yet digested that internationalism arises precisely to defend the national interests of peoples oppressed by colonialism and imperialism? What do they think was the Communist International?

Contrary to what Garzón says, the right to self-determination is not only demanded by "the richest parts". Or has it been believed that in Catalonia the "richer" parts add up to many millions of people.

Do the Social Fascists want us to believe that when Marx and Engels defended the slogan "Workers of the world, unite!" 

They referred to the forced union of workers of different nations within the same State ? 

That is all they have understood ?

In this respect, in the Marxist tradition there is no "everything" about the right of self-determination, as Garzón pretends to believe. 

In Catalonia the recent battle has drawn a line in the ground.

The one who does not defend self-determination is not only outside Marxism, but outside of democracy. 

Those against Catalonia are with fascism,  must be treated as such. 

There is no other label for him".

*PS Alberto Garzon is a Spanish Revisionist
