Thousands of Spanish families say “NO” in the street to the educational reform of the Government of Pedro Sánchez

Madrid / Thousands of families have demonstrated today by car through the main streets of their Spanish cities against the educational reform, the Lomloe or Celaá law, of the Pedro Sánchez Government, because they consider that it curtails the freedom of parents to choose the education of their children and undermines the plurality of the current educational system.

Different caravans of vehicles, all adorned with banners and orange balloons, have starred in the protest called by the More Plural Platform, which includes the community of concerted education, in dozens of cities such as Madrid, Logroño, the five capitals of Castilla-La Mancha, Zaragoza, Oviedo, Cáceres and Santander, among others.

The epicenter of the orange marches, the color chosen by the concerted education to protest against the discriminatory treatment that, they maintain, the Government grants them, has been Madrid, with a caravan of vehicles that has collapsed the central axis of Paseo de la Castellana in both directions between the squares of Cibeles and Cuzco, next to the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

Stop Celáa Law

Under the constant honking of the horn, some 5,000 cars, according to the Government Delegation in Madrid, have participated in the protest, the majority seconded by entire families with children who have displayed banners and flags with the slogan “Stop Celaá law.”

“We have to be able to choose: whoever wants secular education, whoever wants it religious, arranged or private. I want them to let me choose what is best for my children ”, demanded some parents who have joined the demonstration with their three children.

Another father has asked Minister Celaá to listen to all citizens because her law, she has told EFE, “is unfair”, while another couple with children has reminded the Government that “the children belong to the parents.”

All have insisted to EFE that the decision to choose concerted or special education is only made by the parents and that, therefore, the places in these schools are not limited.

The protest this Sunday is the fourth called by the platform since the parliamentary procedure began, as they consider that the new law is an “outrage” and a “real aberration”, without forgetting that, in their opinion, it can affect more of three million students of the concerted school.

The marches that have been followed in dozens of cities have been backed by PP, VOX and Ciudadanos, who voted against the bill last Thursday in Congress. The first two have advanced that, once it enters into force, they will appeal it to the Constitutional Court for being sectarian and contrary to the freedom of choice of center.

In Madrid, the PP has overturned with the rejection of the law. Its president, Pablo Casado, accompanied by the regional president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, and the mayor of the capital and national spokesperson, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, have attended in a car.

Casado has promised that the PP will do “everything possible” in the communities it governs to “avoid the ravages” of a law that it considers “bad for the future, for national unity and for educational quality,” which is, he added. , “The lever of development” of Spain.

He has asked the chief executive, Pedro Sánchez, to “listen” to the families who have come to the protest this Sunday and who ask for “freedom” and “respect for Spain.” (November 22, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
