At the same time, this late reaction is the symbol of the disastrous management of digital platforms in terms of content control that intentionally destabilizes democracies. Subjected to a storm of criticism, the digital giants have gradually introduced some improvements. But these are totally insufficient, as the situation in the US shows.

His thing is to place some plates that prevent climbing and carry out manipulations in a turret of those that provide electrical service to sector five of the Cañada Real Galiana. "We do what they tell us," admits one of them while tightening some rivets, helped by his partner. The unrest grows among the residents after weeks with hardly any supply in much of what is considered the largest irregular settlement in Europe.

Lluís Puig, the former Minister of Culture of the Generalitat, who has fled in Belgium for three years, two months and a week, will not be extradited to Spain.
