totally disengenuous headline from The Times – “referendum riots”. How was that a riot?
Those headlines are warped. No wonder print media is dying. Hundreds were injured when Spanish State police went on rampage.
The weren’t protesters, they were voters
Financial times headline is nearest the truth out of the lot.
Looking forward to hearing our spineless government’s reaction tomorrow.
heyyyyy it’s back!!!!
Spain. It’s where my holidays is.
Mexico had an earthquake.
Or was that a dream?
preliminary counts showing 90% in favour of independence
those newspaper headlines are very odd indeed…the TV coverage has been fairly straight up in fairness, I guess it’s hard to spin live television
The side who opposed holding referendum boycotted the vote, as they did last time. It will be interesting to see what the turn out is in the end.
Polls indicated around 80% support for holding the referendum. Even those opposed to independence were, for the most part, in favour of the vote.
No democratic government would oppose a vote, would it?
42% or so
42% in terms of votes recorded. Thousands were prevented from voting, thousands more were obstructed en route, thousands more were likely intimidated or freaked out so just stayed at home. And hundreds of thousands of ballot papers were taken by the police.
So the 42% means very little. If anything, it’s a surprisingly high number.
“they threw me down the stairs grabbed my fingers and began breaking them one by one”
The left hand is in the cast but, if I’ve interpreted the ‘highlighting circle’ in the video correctly, the right hand is the one being (allegedly) broken in the footage.
The left hand is brought together with the red hand in the highlighting circle within less than a second.
Are you denying there was brutality?
Nope, I am not denying there was brutality.
This whole episode has vindicated the accusations of Fascism against the Popular Party and the Gaurdia Civil. The spirit of Franco lives on in Madrid
