Col·lectiu Emma - Explaining Catalonia

I falsi amici

Monday, 29 november 2010 | Catalogna Oggi
(Publicat al blog del bon amic del Col·lectiu Emma Marco Giralucci) Prima di parlare delle elezioni del parlamento catalano è utile fare una precisazione lessicale. Le parole non hanno lo stesso significato dappertutto. Il sostantivo nazionalismo, usato in Italia o in Germania, possiamo dire che sia quasi un insulto. Il Vocabolario della lingua italiana di Nicola Zingarelli lo definisce testualmente come “Tendenza e prassi politica fondata sull’esaltazione dell’idea di nazione e nazionalità”. [+]

Catalunya, l'independentisme (i el Col·lectiu Emma) al New York Times

Wednesday, 24 november 2010 | New York Times, Premsa
El New York Times ha publicat un article on parla de Catalaunya, de les eleccions i de l'independentisme català: "Battle Lines Drawn in Catalonia". L'artcile recull també les opinions d'un membre del Col·lectiu Emma. Celebrem que, després de la frivolitat de la campanya electoral catalana que ha estat recollida per la premsa internacional (veure aquí, aquí i aquí), un diari del prestigi del New York Times fa una aproximació objectiva a les eleccions catalanes.

A Public Reply to The Guardian (III)

Sunday, 21 november 2010 | The Guardian
Sirs, The Guardian readers might easily draw the wrong conclusions from the November 17, 2010, piece about immigration in the context of the forthcoming regional elections in Catalonia (“Spanish party website drops game featuring candidate wiping out illegal immigrants”). In the article, the description of a despicable act by the regional subsidiary of a Spanish party is juxtaposed with a selective quote on immigration from a representative of the Catalan CiU coalition. Throw in a burqa and a niqab and you get another picture of Catalans as a provincial and bigoted lot. [+]

Resposta de Toni Strubell a The Guardian

Tuesday, 16 november 2010 | The Guardian
To the Editor of the Guardian Dear Sir, The smear campaign against ex-FCB chairman Joan Laporta However much distaste Madrid-based reporter Giles Tremlett might feel for Catalan politics, I do think his attack on Joan Laporta, ex-FCB chairman, in the Nov 14 issue, was excessive. Indeed, it's significant that the article should quote from sources in which the smear campaign against Laporta (porno actress included!) is most enthusiastically fueled by Spanish extreme right-wing press (who is the editor of Marca after all?).

A Public Reply to The Guardian (II)

Monday, 15 november 2010 | The Guardian
Sirs, In relation with your article of November 14 (“Barcelona’s former chairman Joan Laporta adds sex to Catalan separatism”), we feel that The Guardian has done a disservice to its readers by depicting “Catalan separatism” as a mere freak show run by a former football-club chairman suspected of shady financial dealings and a luscious porn star. Leaving aside Mr. Laporta’s undoubted accomplishments, it is a matter of record that the idea of a political project that wouldn’t necessarily involve Spain has been steadily gaining favour in Catalonia in the last few years, especially among the younger and better educated sectors of society.

Close-Up: Catalonia's human towers

Monday, 15 november 2010 | BBC
("Close-Up: Catalonia's human towers" at BBC)     14 November 2010 Last updated at 03:01 GMT This BBC News series focuses on aspects of life in countries and cities around the world. What may seem ordinary and familiar to the people who live there can be surprising to those who do not. It is one of Catalonia's more unusual spectacles - and now the region has applied for the tradition of building a Castell, or human tower, to be inscribed on Unesco's list of examples of "intangible cultural heritage".
