Col·lectiu Emma - Explaining Catalonia

Una giornata particolare (Manifestazione senza precedenti nel giorno della festa nazionale catalana dell’11 settembre 2012)

Friday, 7 september 2012
(Versione italiana dall’originale in inglese diretta all’opinione pubblica internazionale dal Collettivo Emma) Il 10 luglio 2010 centinaia di migliaia di catalani, popolo tradizionalmente reticente a farsi notare, si sono dati appuntamento a Barcellona arrivando da tutta la Catalogna per una manifestazione di massa. Il motivo principale erano i tagli portati a termine dal Tribunale Costituzionale spagnolo allo Statuto d’Autonomia di Catalogna, che quattro anni prima era stato approvato dal parlamento catalano, quello spagnolo, e addirittura sottoposto con successo a un referendum popolare.

Manifestation à l'occasion de la Fête nationale catalane (Notes sur la marche prévue pour le 11 septembre à Barcelone)

Friday, 7 september 2012
Le 10 juillet 2010 eut lieu à Barcelone une manifestation politique massive lors de laquelle des centaines de milliers de Catalans –peuple peu enclin à faire du bruit– sortirent dans la rue. La cause immédiate était que l'Espagne venait de formaliser son rejet de l'Estatut (loi d'autonomie politique) approuvé par le Parlement et ratifié en référendum quatre ans auparavant. À l'époque, la révision du cadre législatif régulant l'autonomie avait été conçue en Catalogne comme une proposition loyale d'accord politique au sein de l'organisation de l'État. [+]

Friday, 7 september 2012
[Versión española de la nota original dirigida en inglés a la opinión pública internacional por el Col·lectiu Emma]  El 10 de julio de 2010 cientos de miles de catalanes ­–un pueblo poco dado a levantar la voz– salieron a la calle en una manifestación política realmente masiva.

More on the rise of threatening language against Catalans

Tuesday, 4 september 2012 | hate
Only a few weeks ago Col·lectiu Emma alerted about the episodes of hate speech against Catalans that are on the rise in social networks and in some established media in Spain (see "The world should be paying attention to hate speech in Spain (Notes on the recent death threats against a Catalan Olympian)"). Last week this situation took an uglier turn when a Lieutenant Colonel in the Spanish army publicly warned that any move towards the independence of Catalonia would prompt a reaction from the military (see here).

Recommended articles about the financial situation in Catalonia

Monday, 3 september 2012 | AFP, Fisher Investments, MarketMinder
The bailout that the Catalan administration is seeking from the Spanish government has received a lot of attention from international media. Col·lectiu Emma believes that this matter should be viewed in its proper political context (see "The reasons behind Catalonia's financial difficulties (Notes on the bailout request from the Catalan government)"), and we would like to recommend two recent articles that present the story in that light: "Homage to Catalonia" by Fisher Investments Editorial Staff  "Catalonia bailout request seen fuelling independence drive" by AFP [+]

Recommended article: "The Catalan Bailout" by Xavier Sala-i-Martín

Friday, 31 august 2012 | Xavier Sala-i-Martín
We want to recommend Professor Xavier Sala-i-Martin's article "The Catalan Bailout". Some excerpts: As most major Spanish companies that lost access to international private capital markets, Catalunya has lost access to bank credit. Hence, it has no other choice but to borrow from the state rescue fund created for such occasions. (...) despite the undeniable mismanagement by the Catalan Government during the boom years, the truth is that the incompetence and disloyalty of the central government, the faulty system of funding regional governments and the international spectacle of disrepute on the part of key Spanish institutions made the need for a Catalan bailout all but guaranteed.

Quelles sont les raisons des difficultés financières de la Catalogne? (Notes sur la demande de sauvetage financier du gouvernement catalan)

Thursday, 30 august 2012
Quelles sont les raisons des difficultés financières de la Catalogne? Notes sur la demande de sauvetage financier du gouvernement catalan La demande de 5 milliards d'euros que la Catalogne vient d'effectuer, officiellement, au gouvernement espagnol a très rapidement fait la une de la presse financière dans le monde entier. C'est bien malheureux que la Catalogne, probablement la région la plus dynamique et productive du sud de l'Europe, se retrouve dans une situation à ce point désespérée. [+]

The reasons behind Catalonia's financial difficulties (Notes on the bailout request from the Catalan government)

Wednesday, 29 august 2012 | press
The reasons behind Catalonia's financial difficulties Notes on the bailout request from the Catalan government The 5 billion euro bailout that Catalonia formally requested from the Spanish government yesterday quickly made the front pages of the financial press all over the world. It is sad news for all that what is probably the most dynamic and productive region in the south of Europe should find itself in such dire straits. One reason for the calamitous state of Catalan public finances is the overspending of the last several years. [+]
