Hispanish Culture Day has returned to Barcelona, ​​not as an answer to separatism, from which it is impossible to unlink a part of its message, but as a celebration of the unique and shared identity, and that has been noticed a lot in the 2019 edition.

Already in 2018 the event was one of the main ones at national level, with very positive contributions such as the representation of culture and folklore of all Spanish-speaking countries. The experience has intensified if possible in this edition, also with the coverage of national and international media, with special emphasis on Latin Americans.
Regarding the organization, there's a tendency towards plural participation, but at the same time the unification of a large part of the constitutional entities under the Cataluña Suma brand. Fortunately, the "friendly fire" that sometimes dazzles constitutionalism (and nationalism as well) seems to give space to an "all together" that is inevitable in order to overcome the situation in Catalonia.
The participation of personalities has been very high, starting with the usual political representatives such as Ines Arrimadas, Josep Bou, Carlos Carrizosa, Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo, Bertrand N'Dongo, Dolors Montserrat and many more, and we had the opportunity to speak with many of them. I notice that I haven't mentioned any left-wing politicians, and I can't assure you there wasn't. But I'm sure that Plaza Cataluña was full of left-wing people, as much as right-wing. Simply their most recognized leaders were not there. And if they were, I didn't see them.
The live interventions have been combined with the video participation of illustrious constitutionalists such as Jose Manuél Soto or the "Very Honorable President of Tabarnia", Albert Boadella, in a message full of his particular humor. In the case of the personalities present, a somewhat more bearable pace has been noticed than last year, with better time planning.
Another breath of fresh air has been the lively participation of "Los de Artós", the young constitutionalists who somehow lit the flame of the response two years ago and who represent not only the most optimistic future, but resistance to indoctrination it's possible.
We can't fail to highlight the presence of one of the masters of the ceremony, Pedro García Aguado, from Madrid, who lived in Esplugues del Llobregat while training as an elite athlete and almost everyone know him for his redeeming role in the successful TV reality "Hermano Mayor". We had the opportunity to speak with him, as well as with other icons of constitutionalism such as our friend Imma Alcolea, the "mossa de esquadra" harassed by the internal affairs division of the Catalan autonomous police for being constitutionalist and speaking it out loud.
The general feeling has been that Hispanish Culture Day is already an inexcusable figure of Barcelona. A joyful and festive event that no one can miss and that citizens claim as their own for years to come.
We have no doubt that nationalist television will build its own history. Surely the Colau Urban Guard will give some very poor participation figures to place the assistance below the puncture that the hyper-subsidized September 11 has meant this year. Almost certainly they will focus on the peripheral and marginal participation of ultra-rightist groups such as La Falange and will look for eagled imperial flags among the attendees (and if they don't find them, the appropriate archive images may sneak). In any case, attendees have lived in Barcelona as a joyful day for the celebration of unity in diversity, and if one day nationalism loses the intensity it currently still has, it will surely continue to be a celebration, without the need for to claim abuse, but to praise a common history and a promising future.
