Col·lectiu Emma - Explaining Catalonia

Catalonia is an inclusive country, a civic republic

Monday, 11 june 2018 | EUobserver
euobserver 6. JUN, 2018   By JORDI SOLÉ Recent allegations have tried to paint the broad Catalan pro-independence movement as one with racist and xenophobic undertones, comparing it with far-right populist movements that remind us of a different era. 

 Thankfully, in Catalonia this kind of identity politics was overcome decades ago by those in favour of building an independent Catalan Republic. Catalonia has historically been, and still is to this day, a land where different cultures have met, mixed, and lived together. [+]

A Matter of Time

Tuesday, 22 may 2018 | LA VANGUARDIA
Published in "LA VANGUARDIA" on 20th April 2018. By FERRAN REQUEJO When judges meddle in politics, they distort semantics, forget “the spirit of the laws” and display their ignorance. When judges meddle in politics they become bad judges and even worse politicians. It is said that there is “a lack of politics” in Spain, but there is also an excess of judges practising it. While the Llarena affair is by no means unique, it does exemplify the myriad structural problems that characterize the Spanish political system. [+]

LA VANGUARDIA 20-04-2018.-   Por FERRAN REQUEJO   Cuando los jueces hacen política, estrujan la semántica, olvidan “el espíritu de las leyes” y muestran sus ignorancias.

Sunday, 13 may 2018 | AFFARI INTERNAZIONALI
AFFARI INTERNAZIONALI 3 Maggio 2018   ELENA MARISOL BRANDOLINI   Da alcuni mesi, in Spagna la giustizia occupa la scena mediatica. È successo con la vicenda catalana, in cui il ricorso ai tribunali e alla legalità ha sostituito la politica fin dal principio. Poi si è compreso che si trattava solo della punta dell’iceberg e quello che c’era sotto è venuto a galla un po’ alla volta. Si è visto allora che la giustizia spagnola presenta vari problemi. [+]
