Sanders expresses his support to Colau in a Barcelona against the corporations


The leader of the most left wing of the Democratic Party of the United States, Bernie Sanders, today expressed his support for Ada Colau to renew this Sunday as mayor of Barcelona, ​​which he said has made the Catalan capital a "beacon" in the struggle against corporate power.

"Barcelona shows us that another world is possible and another way of doing politics is possible," the Democratic senator added on the social network.

Colau was last December in Burlington (USA), in a conference of the Sanders Institute, where he claimed to "amplify" a "progressive alternative in the world" to stop the "extreme right" and leaders like Donald Trump, Jair Bolsonaro or Mateo Salvini.

In that act, sheltered by the left wing of the American Democratic Party, Colau was very applauded and personally supported by Sanders and other leaders to remember that she is the first woman to run the City of Barcelona.

There Colau was presented as a "working class woman" belonging to a local platform (Barcelona en Comú) - "not a party" - representing social movements, human rights activists and workers who have a " new project "," more inclusive, democratic, feminist and innovative ", which won the elections three years ago" without political or economic power ".
