Col·lectiu Emma - Explaining Catalonia

Tuesday, 6 october 2009 | Bloomberg


International repercussion of municipal referendums on independence

As we did after the referendum held at Arenys de Munt, Col.lectiu Emma would like to emphasize the calm and impartial treatment given by the international press to the question of the consultations on independence planned in several Catalan towns. This treatment is in stark contrast with the irrational reactions that have been frequent in Spanish media and also with the uneasiness that can be felt in some opinion circles in Catalonia. In this context, we reproduce an article published by Bloomberg, an influential site specializing in economic and financial news, and we applaud the fairness of its correspondent Emma Ross-Thomas.
