A center assigned by Colau will host a pro-indoctrination conference in which professors and officials of the Generalitat participate.
In spite of all the efforts of the independence movement to deny that there is an instrumentalization of the classrooms in favor of the separatist cause, the reality in Catalonia seems different. A good example of this is the conference organized by the secessionist union Intersindical-CSC on Wednesday October 17 in Barcelona, whose enlightening title leaves no doubt: “The Republic begins in the classroom.”
This independence union, which defends “the right to self-determination of Catalonia” and “protection and promotion against any other imposition of the Catalan language”, is headed by Carlos Sastre, former militant of the terrorist organizations Exèrcit Popular Català (EPOCA) and Terra Lliure. In 1985, the National Court sentenced Sastre to 48 years in prison – although he would only turn 11 – for murdering businessman José María Bultó in 1977, putting a bomb in his chest.
The “headliner” will be the teacher and former mayor of Badalona by Podemos, Dolors Sabater, who was subjected to a motion of censure and expelled from the City Council by the PP, Cs and PSC in June this year, due to its favorable positioning to the creation of a Catalan state. Something that was more than demonstrated when, in September 2017, she informed the officials of his municipality that she would reward them for working during the illegal referendum on October 1.
The event will also be attended by Toni Caserres, from the Territorial Education Service -dependent of the Ministry of Education-, Pablo Martínez, worker of the Consortium of Education of Barcelona -institution that coordinates the educational policy of the Generalitat with the City Council of Barcelona – and Sergi Perelló, spokesperson for Antisindical-CSC. This presentation will take place at the Pati Llimona Civic Center, provided by Mayor Ada Colau.
Acts like this show that indoctrination in Catalan schools is a palpable reality. Perhaps because of this, the Government of Pedro Sánchez, a separatism partner, decided to leave the report prepared by the High State Inspection, which denounced “the lack of objectivity in activities, maps and texts” in the textbooks Catalans, “that contribute a partial and biased character or, at least, subjective of the reality of Spain”.
