The mayor and deputy mayor Ada Colau boasted this Monday in the Tarongers gardens in the Raval neighborhood of the support of an impressive list of more than 300 personalities from a lot of fields. There are, for example, the writer Rosa Regàs, the actor Alberto San Juan or the former anti-corruption prosecutor Carlos Jiménez Villarejo.
The thing about the manifestos of support in the electoral campaign goes by neighborhoods. And to some it seems like a representative sample of the creativity, drive and talent of this society to others it seems simply a bunch of unpresentable -give Twitter a couple of hours and you'll see, no one is safe from the haters –.
In any case, and tastes aside, the list of support for the commons is crowded with prominent names and surnames that are very proper, specifically up to 315, who sign Barcelona is worth moving forward . Here is also the writer Miqui Otero, the LGTBI activist Samantha Hudson, the former attorney general of Catalonia José María Mena... Everyone understands that Ada Colau started in 2015 a transformation of this city that is still incomplete, that it cannot stay halfway, that only she can finish. "On 28M -says the text- Barcelona will decide whether to continue the change started or go back and return to the models of the past". And he concludes that this city "deserves to keep moving forward, look to the future with optimism and consolidate the change with Ada Colau at the helm of a progressive government."
More positions, names and surnames: the professor of constitutional law Javier Pérez Royo, the actress Judit Martín, the playwright Guillem Clua, the journalist Ana Polo, the screenwriter Carlos Bardem, the clown Tortell Poltrona, the director Neus Ballús...
And all the signatories endorse the superblocks, the protection of school environments, the battle waged by the commons against pollution and climate change... "Barcelona has recovered its distinctive features of social justice, democratic radicalism and constant struggle for improvement of the quality of life of its neighbours.
Also showing their support for the mayor are the writer Carlos Zanón, the actor Juan Diego Botto, the photographer Tanit Plana, the singer Andrea Motis...
And the number one on the BComú list took the baton and said that everyone has to make an effort and give their best because, otherwise, the future will be simply terrifying. "We cannot resign ourselves, we have to continue opening the way," she stressed.
