Seems like every State and Authoritarian on the planet is virulently against Catalans complaining about 500 years of macho Spanish colonialism. Of course, because their very own ‘cash cow’ populations could go copy-cat. Rebellion is brewing everywhere as wealth is funneled ever more to the tiny hierarchical elite.
The Spanish Right, unreformed, rabid and clerical have wallowed in repressive robbery and mass murder for centuries. But recently some of the tens of thousands of politicians have been caught with their greedy fat fingers in the public cash box.
No prison, no punishment, of course, but the far right PP almost got voted out. And one way they could keep power was by BLAMING THE CATALANS. For 5 years we have suffered an incessant racist campaign against these hospitable and long suffering people. And now provoking a tidal wave of racist and sexist male violence against them.
Until finally… We want back the democratic Republic your military took from us by murder and massacre. We don’t want your King, appointed by a fascist dictator, or your Constitution, agreed only under the threat of 40 more years of total repression.
Hopefully the blind authoritarianism of the stomping PP nationalists will be the death throes of the imperial mentality,. If not the Catalans will resist, the debts won’t be paid, and the entire economic House of Cards could tumble down.
Then maybe we can build something better in Iberia.
