The witch hunt begins in Catalonia The witch hunt begins in Catalonia
29/03/2021 337

The situation in Catalonia is reaching unsustainable extremes of absurdity. It's incomprehensible that at this stage of the conflict in Catalonia an activist is interviewed on television being described as anti-fascist and, speaking of critics of the independence movement, calls to "Identify them", "keep them under control", "find where they work", "point them out" , "pressure them in their work", "make their life more uncomfortable and difficult" so that "they cannot be at peace", because "their ideas are dangerous" and "they can't be allowed to express theirselves freely" while a presenter and several talk companions nod respectfully as if they were listening to the list of human rights read by Nelson Mandela himself.   Because that's what happened on TV3 last week in the Planta baixa show. The interviewee was Pol Andiñach, journalist, author of the book Everyone... Leer Más

One year after the alleged macrocontagion of Perpignan One year after the alleged macrocontagion of Perpignan
01/03/2021 222

Let's go back an exact year, or as exact as it can be if we take into account that we are talking about February 29 of a leap year. There were still 12 days left for the WHO to declare the global pandemic and three more days for the state of alarm to be declared in Spain, but the Generalitat was already aware of the health risk. The cancellation of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona was already history and the WHO warned against holding public events with more than 1,000 people. Despite all, the nationalist "govern" delayed its own action plan against COVID-19 (something they have already admitted on TV3) to allow a show of strength in Perpignan (France), a territory that the Catalan independence claims as the "North Catalonia". For that tribute to Puigdemont it had been decided to put 200,000 Catalans in five hundred buses, locked up for hours of travel to concentrate them in ... Leer Más

Catalonia - no country for old people Catalonia - no country for old people
01/02/2021 316

This is one of the posters that I found this weekend of the campaign start. Usually there's always some publicists who gets carried away and crosses a line in they eagerness to attract attention, but this screw up for the Joventut Socialista de Catalunya (emerged from the PSC-C, PSC-R and FSC-PSOE formations) leads me to think that maybe they should have given the idea another spin. Because saying that "Catalonia will be a land for young people" wouldn't be a bad slogan if it were not for the fact that it's also a statement of what the pandemic has left us. A land that is losing its elders, many deceased in residences, hospitals or at home, other sick and with sequelae.   Of course, the glorification of youth to the detriment of the elderly is a vice that is sometimes abused by a certain sector of populism that needs that adrenaline and that rebellion to thrive. ... Leer Más

The Generalitat backs down with the rallies before the wave of criticism The Generalitat backs down with the rallies before the wave of criticism
28/01/2021 300

It was already a lousy idea from the health point of view, but it also meant a huge miscalculation from the point of view of the image of the nationalist leaders and their perception by the voters, since they have made clear the priorities of a power that prioritizes electoral calculations avobe the health of its citizens, almost a year after the controversial macro-contagion in Perpignan (revealed in the CatCovidTransparencia report). This time the Government's miscalculation has been so enormous that possibly even the rectification is no longer capable of avoiding the damage it has inflicted on its own image.   Because after setting the electoral date on February 14 (in the middle of the pandemic), the Generalitat reacted to the change of candidate of the PSC (which some call "The Illa effect") with a hasty decree of postponement that left open the possibility of delay... Leer Más

Carrefour answers for the pro independence videos Carrefour answers for the pro independence videos
10/01/2021 453

Perhaps we'll never know whose decision was to broadcast in a loop through the closed circuit television of the electronics department those images of Catalonia sprinkled with independence acts that we made public in this article. What we do know is that Carrefour's director of institutional operations in Catalonia has responded to complaints from several clients who have contacted his department in protest at the politicization of the Gavà center. This is an excerpt from his answer: "As soon as we were aware of his suggestion, we removed the images, always respecting neutrality, and replaced them with others"   It should be said that for this type of case, Carrefour's response is correct, and some of the complainants have expressed their satisfaction with the response, taking into account that the reported propaganda action may not necessarily have been t... Leer Más

Trump and Catalan Independence - Similarities and Differences Trump and Catalan Independence - Similarities and Differences
09/01/2021 392

They're very different scenarios, but with resonances in form and in substance. Far from an exhaustive analysis, but trying to maintain a certain equity, we're going to confront the most striking characteristics of both phenomena.   Access to power: Similar.   Trump acceded by a parliamentary majority, but not in votes. The same can be said of nationalism. In both cases, an anomalous electoral law allows a force that doesn't add enough votes to achieve an absolute majority in parliament.   Language policy: Points in common.   The United States is an English-speaking country in which the Spanish language is the second most widely spoken language (15%) after English (79%) and far behind the third language, Chinese (1%). Therefore, Spanish was already present in the American streets as well as on the websites of the United States government,... Leer Más

Hola, José Manuel. Si el independentismo vuelve a hacer un movimiento como el de hace dos años no te quepa duda, pero ahora mismo el valor de Tabarnia (desde mi punto de vista) está como reflejo de su hipocresía. Sin embargo creo que Tabarnia tiene las mismas posibilidades de hacerse real que Cataluña de ser un país independiente. Porque lo segundo provocaría lo primero. Saludos.

Comenta Mi experiencia con los animales
Pues yo sin mis gatitos y mis perritos ya no puedo vivir. Los amo, los adoro y me río muchísimo con ellos, me hacen compañía, me esperan y me quieren. Prueba amiga, si tienes cuidado no tienen porque pasar desgracias. Vivir con animalitos, requiere sacrificio y compromiso, como todo amor verdadera, pero es una experiencia de lo más gratificante. Te aseguro amiga que ellos tienen alma.

Hola, Angel Carmona. Soy otro de los que escucha más los programas por la web que por la radio, y como además de escucharlos los puedo ver, pues vale la pena. Teniendo en cuenta que esta gente se mueve desde el corazón (y no desde la subvención) el nivel de calidad es encomiable. Especialmente en El Umbral de la Duat. Saludos.
