Spanish Police Attack Voters During Catalan Independence Referendum

It’s turning into a day of shame for Spain as the reactionary government in Madrid seeks to deny the Catalan people the ultimate democratic right: national self-determination. The spirit of Francisco Franco and the Falange lives on in the premiership of Mariano Rajoy and the Partido Popular.

  1. Will the EU take the plunge and see the future as a “Europe of the Peoples” or will it continue to back the big centralised states, Spain, France, Germany, and the UK should it eventually remain?
    Where does Ireland stand in all of this???

  2. Seems like the image you chose is now iconic.

    Do we really want to remain in an EU that condones, or at least scarcely condemns this? Why aren’t all the small and especially recently ‘liberated’ nations speaking out? Is the EU capable of reform or will it remain permanently under the domination of a few big quasi-imperial states? Even though to a large extent the Europe-wide structures of the EU render the need for large states largely redundant?? In short recent events are shook up many of my certainties … How goes it with you, a chára?
