GRAPHIC: The municipalities that are supporting referendum.
Some mayors and council members of PSC have been forced to increase ir personal safety due to social tension that is perceived by its refusal to collaborate in referendum of independence on 1 October, suspended confiscate by Constitutional Court.
So what have confirmed to Efe diverse selectmen socialists, who have explained that because y have been "appointed" by pro-independence, have detected a "situation of tension" in your environment that has made it necessary to increase your protection.
it Is case of second deputy mayor of Barcelona, Jaume Collboni, who has openly stated that "many of us have had to strengn our security, because re is a risk, and because security experts as well have told us that what we have to do."
"it Is common sense that in a situation of tension we have been recommended to strengn our security", has declared to Efe also secretary of Municipal Policy of PSC, who has reported: "There is a clear will on part of JxSí and CUP to point out politically to those who do not share your via unilateral, that re is pressure at level of media and pressure on street who hopefully won't go beyond."
Collboni, which has made it clear that he has not suffered any "serious incident" at moment, has shown its "solidarity and support" to all selectmen socialists who "suffer from pressure of Government", which were required by charter to collaborate with 1-Or, an "unilateral" which means to be placed "outside law" and "put at risk" local governments, has ensured Collboni.
In this context, el PSC has already submitted to Prosecutor's office, death threats and insults directed at mayor Bagà (Barcelona), Nicholas Sheen, while is collecting a list with a range of pressures, threats and insults received by ir mayors in different Catalan cities.
This list includes painted "Alfons, fascist, lets vote" against mayor of L'hospitalet de L'infant, Alfons Garcia; gratifis in city Hall of Palau-Solità i Plegamans against mayor Teresa Padrós, such as "Adolf Padrós" with a nazi swastika and claim that "take polls"; or banners in Santa Coloma de Gramanet as "Núria (Parlon), opens schools. The 1-Or do we want to vote as always."
re are Also a message on Twitter directed to Núria Parlon who says "charnega of shit, I do not want in Catalonia, go to your land, starved", and messages of CKD in Ruby in pressing mayor Ana Maria Martinez, pointing out that if councillor socialist and his tripartite "fear democracy, let me step to councillors of CKD" and to "put ballot boxes."
Likewise, a poster in Sant Pere de Ribes "Abigail (Garrido), we want to vote, democracy is to open polling stations"; a message of mobile in Les Masies de Voltregà by calling for a cacerolada protest against mayor; a call for garing in front of city council of Sant Adrià de Besòs; or a post from Facebook by pointing out where is headquarters of PSC in Sant Feliu de Guixols.
Also suffer from pressures mayors as of Tarragona, Josep Felix Ballesteros, who yesterday called for ir resignation in a chant, repeated at rally Junts pel Itself in Tarragona in beginning of his "campaign" to vote in a referendum, 1-O.
And who has also suffered heavy insults has been mayor of Terrassa, Jordi Ballart, what has been reported on Facebook: "I have been told that I am a botifler, a sellout, a coward, a wimp and a traitor. I am a sociata of shit, that I'm garbage and that I smell to mierdecilla. I have suggested that I go Terrassa, that I will wake up, that I'm a bad Catalan, an unworthy, a piece of shit and a fag disgusting. Have gotten with my sexual condition and have been moved to limit with putting up with my partner and my parents."
In case of Palau-Solità i Plegamans, although it has not increased security of mayor after graffiti appeared in town hall, municipal sources have explained that Mossos have asked town Council for location of premises of all parties of municipality, to increase surveillance in se weeks.
In parallel, mayor of L'hospitalet, Nuria Marín, mayor of greater weight of PSC position that directs second city of Catalonia, has not seen altered its protection, because, as she herself has explained on occasion, supporters of 1-Or that you have been approached by street until time y have done so in a courteous manner and without disorder, beyond that in time of Day Guardia Urbana has strengned its security and that of consistory.
A case similar to that of or mayors of great cities of metropolitan area, as Carlos Ruiz (Viladecans) or Núria Parlon (Santa Coloma de Gramenet), who have not decided to take an extraordinary measure of any kind, or David Boat (Mataró), which maintains "normal life" at institutional level and without any change in spite of manifestations of independence before consistory of past few days.
Required for this issue, a spokesman for Mossos d'esquadra has declined to give details on issues related to personal security of public officials.
