Some far-left movements have spoken up against "illegalization threats."

In a press conference on Wednesday, several groups including the CUP party, and the youth organization Arran, called for an antifascist front and other "clearly democratic" instruments to face such threats.

"Building up alliances to defend fundamental rights is more necessary than ever," said CUP MP Maria Sirvent.

For her, "democrats" all over Spain should be together against such "illegalization threats."

"Today it is the CUP, tomorrow any other one who questions the regime," she added.

People’s Party on banning the CUP and Arran

This comes as a reaction to the Spanish People’s Party leader, Pablo Casado, who said on October 3 that the CUP can already be banned.

According to him, Spain’s parties’ law provides the illegalization of any political force which promotes or does not condemn violence, and he said the CUP is already in this situation.

Last week, the same party’s leader in Catalonia, Alejandro Fernández, claimed that Arran’s latest actions can lead to its illegalization.

It was his reaction to the youth organization painting in yellow the façade of a Spanish judge Pablo Llarena’s house in Catalonia.
