Daily disturbances that have been suffering for more than a week at Gràcia neighbourhood still stirred more relations between nationalist and anti-independence parties. A court order demanded the eviction of the squatters installed in the former headquarters of a bank branch and from that day the fighting has only just repeated day after day. Last political party in despising these vandals act has been Ciudadanos with Rivera’s deep indignation against catalonian anti-establishment groups in a television interview, has shown its stance on the situation.

Rivera conveys DISAPPROVAL and BETRAYAL in his accusations, something that is entirely consistent with its opposite message to these actions being allowing by the City Council. Albert Rivera shows through his emotions, INDIGNATION that trigger the riots that occur daily on the streets of Barcelona and are supported by members of the CUP as Anna Gabriel, deputy of the Parliament of Catalonia and one of the people that vote favouraby Carles Puigdemont’s investiture to proclaim himself President of the Generalitat of Catalonia last January.
Albert Rivera, with his moderate speech called for “enforce the law” and showed DELIGHT on their claims. This indicates the high level of commitment and trust with institutions such as riot trying to get it over with a situation that could become unsustainable. In addition, the leader of the opposition party in Catalonia accused the council of Barcelona of “inflame” and hinder the eviction of the squat contrary to what, in his opinion, should do the public office.
