Migrant crisis: Vox leader Santiago Abascal visits Canary Islands, English subtitles
notes with timestamps:
0:01 the number of migrants arriving in the Canary Islands has skyrocketed in recent months: 12,000 arrived between mid-October and early December (8,000 had arrived in the previous 10 1/2 months).
Santiago Abascal (the leader of Vox) made a three day trip to Canaries last week (Thursday 3rd December to Saturday 5th December).
0:55 "pull effect": literally "call effect" (efecto llamada).
Abascal is saying that politicians are attracting and inviting migrants (indirectly) through their actions and words.
He repeatedly uses the phrase "calling to" (llamar a) throughout this video and in his speeches to describe what is happening.
He says the politicians are "calling to" the migrants. This is a vague and ambiguous term but means inviting / attracting.
The audio here is from a press conference Abascal gave in Tenerife.
In the press conference Abascal went on to give examples of what he means by this "pull effect":
1 - the minimum income introduced in Spain during the covid crisis,
2 - the decsion to accept the migrants from the Aquarius ship in 2018
3 - politicians saying that the solution to Spain's demographic crisis (low birth rates) lies in immigration.
1:00 Partido Popular (PP) are the mainstream, moderate centre-right.
Podemos are left wing democratic socialists.
The Socialist Party (the PSOE) are the mainstream centre-left.
The current government is a PSOE-Podemos coalition.
1:35 guardias: members of the Guardia Civil, a militarised police force in Spain (similar to gendarmes in France or Carabinieri in Italy).
1:45 regularised: given documents etc, made regular (legal + documented), allowed to stay and work etc.
2:30 the man on the loudspeaker is talking about pensioners.
I didn't subtitle it because it is only a short snippet that doesn't make a lot of sense without more context (it is the second half of one sentence, and the start of a second sentence)
2:48 social harmony: the phrase Abascal uses is "convivència" (living together).
This has a similar meaning to the French term "vivre ensemble".
It refers to potentially hostile communities living side by side in peace (for example the left and the right in post-Franco Spain, different language communities, or immigrants and natives)
3:21 the banner reads "Save tourism in Mogan. Demonstration to safeguard the future of tourism."
3:30 ¡Abascal, presidente!: president here means "President of the Government" (called prime minister in English). So they are really saying "Abascal for prime minister"
4:02 the placard reads "secure borders, secure (safe) neighbourhoods"
4:23 progressive: generally this refers to the centre-left, for example the PSOE (Abascal calls Podemos "communists" not progressives)
5:00 attracting a massive immigration originating from places...:
the phrase Abascal uses here (llamar a) could be translated as "calling for" (literally proposing, wanting) or "calling to" (attracting, inviting, a vaguer, more indirect term).
I think he means the latter.
It fits in better with his use of "call" throughout his speeches: that the politicians are doing this indirectly, rather than literally and explicitly calling for mass immigration from Africa.
5:24 progressives and communists: usually this means the centre-left PSOE and left-wing Podemos.
All translation and subtitling is my own original work.
