Meanwhile, In Barcelona


Sky News reports:

Catalans are taking part in a general strike called after a police crackdown during Sunday’s controversial independence referendum.

In Barcelona, metro stations were closed, main roads were blocked by pickets and civil servants walked out.

Tens of thousands took to the streets in protest to Spain’s response to the vote, which was deemed illegal by Madrid.

      It was a 42% turnout, which would lead me to believe that most people opposed to independence didn’t bother to vote.

        Or perhaps the people who didn’t vote were concerned about getting the crap beaten out of them.

    It would be so good and powerful to see this in Dublin. We have enough reasons

      That would bring out all the shills. That’s be going on about the class of protesters, the time of the day, nothing better to do etc.
