CATALONIA ON THE GUARDIAN AND THE NEW YORK TIMES
It is obvious that if you live in Catalonia it is very easy to be unhappy with Spain but I will never forget that thanks to the Spanish Socialist Party now we have GAY MARRIAGE in Spain. In an independent Catalonia with people like Duran i Lleida (he loves the Pope and the doctors who “cure” homosexuality) I would not feel very comfortable.
I agree totally with the independence movement that Catalonia should decide its own future. That said it is obvious for me that once Catalonia was independent then the problems we have now with Madrid will just be inside Catalonia.
The NYT is also talking about Catalonia!
