Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There should be "spontaneous" rallies/vigils after 5pm today. But like the ones on March 11 4 years ago, they will be politically charged.

The trouble with the likely "official" demonstrations tomorrow is that tomorrow is the "reflection day" during which no political campaigning is allowed at all.

I have no idea if they will reach an agreement.. any kind of demonstration is going to be politically charged... so if any party does not like it should not happen.. and even if it happens.. expect rightwing member to carry the day in some quartets...

this is crazy... absolutely crazy.

Tomorrow 12:00 there will be concentrations, at least in Basque Country.

how do you call a small rally in silence at different points of a city? I did not know the word. so I used the concentration word..

but I meant is small groups of people joining in silence in different places of a city (major, government offices..) if the town is small all in one place. No slogans..

small silent rallies is proably the best word/description

You can call it a vigil. Except the word "vigil" recalls the nightime.
