    Like the Palestinian protesters or the French yellow vests the Catalans will get minimal media coverage.

    Unlike the Kuomintang protesters in China.

    Amazing picture – thanks for keeping us updated on this. The history of the Irish and Catalans is very similar – both subjugated nations. Although we got our independence, we seem to have reverted back into compliance and deference to a new overlord – the EU – accepting life under terrible conditions. The Catalans are an inspiration and this picture a testimony of beauty in so many respects!

      Oh please! You compare the Irish situation of complete cultural obliteration by the British to the continued support of Catalan Culture and identity by Spain?

        My family are O’Neill – we have many O’Neills, and a few O’Donnells in Catalonia, since 1607 . The flight of the Earls thing. It’s kinda like Montreal in Canada when they had a referendum to become an independent state – they failed. Scotland tried similarly, and similarly failed. Catalan – #je suis catalan
