Re: Huge march in Barcelona on Catalonias national day
Thanks for that update Ogiol! The noises coming from a right wing group of former army personnel about the army being the defenders of the current constitution of Spain is seriously the wrong way to go for the Madrid-backers.
It is always a disaster when some powerbloc either threatens to or attempts to quash separatism- always cause the pendulum of public opinion to begin swinging towards the separatists.
Amazing how conservative bully tactics always causes a backlash and conservatives fail to learn from history in this regard.
Remember how quickly public opinion in Dublin swung away from the Crown and towards the nationalists when the military in Dublin made the mistake of shooting the leaders of 1916.
The Times and the Independent in 1916 had editorials calling for the strongest possible measures against the rebels- but that proved to be a mistake in the court of public opinion in the end. The notion of a Madrid led falange attempting to force Catalunya would be a disaster in the end and would probably prove the final nail in the coffin as regards Catalunya being a region of Spain.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
