Restrictions applied by governments around the world to tackle the coronavirus pandemic have, over time, caused protests in many countries. The first in Spain were unleashed on May 10, on Calle de Núñez de Balboa, in the Salamanca district of Madrid. Then there have been more, apart from those of professional sectors: extreme right, deniers and even vandalism. Also the marches called by Vox. They all have one word in common in their slogans: freedom. It is a striking idea, which clashes with that of the general interest in the fight against a virus, and something exotic in the Spanish political panorama, very alien to the extreme demand for individual freedom, so felt in the United States. But it has also been incorporated into the discourse of the opposition, which for months has accused the government of taking advantage of the pandemic, even to establish an authoritarian regime. This Thursday, in Congress, the deputies of PP, Vox and Ciudadanos shouted “freedom” before the approval of the new education law. In Spain, “freedom” was shouted in the streets in the Transition and the symbol was the song Freedom without anger of Jarcha, who called for reconciliation. Now it is asked, with anger, freedom.
