Reply to the Irish Times

(Reply from Heather Hayes -a good friend of Col·lectiu Emma- to the article "Protesters call for Catalan autonomy and reject ruling" published in the Irish Times; this is not a Col·lectiu Emma article, just a post from a good friend of ours)   Ms. Walker, I must take issue with several points in your recent article on the massive protest march in Barcelona. I'm afraid that you are not fulfilling one of the most important duties of the press: to remain neutral. [+]

The questionable independence of the Spanish justice

(By Gustau Alegret, a Col·lectiu Emma's friend; you can find more interesting articles from Gustau in his blog "Diari de Washington"; this is not a Col·lectiu Emma article, just a post from a good friend of ours) Washington, DC. - The Spanish Constitutional Court (CC) recently ruled on the Statute of Autonomy of Catalonia. This by-law was ratified by the people of Catalonia by referendum in 2006 after a long legal path from the Catalan Parliament to the Spanish Court, the signature of the King of Spain, and finally the Catalan referendum which approved the text following the democratic process to the letter.

A few comments on the July 10th demonstration in Barcelona

Monday, 12 july 2010
International reports on the huge rally in favor of Catalan freedom that was held last Saturday in Barcelona with the slogan “We are a nation and we are the ones who decide” have been by and large fair and factual. The Madrid-based media, on the other hand, have foolishly tried to minimize the importance of what is said to be the largest political demonstration ever on the streets of Barcelona, or to spin it in the way that best suited their respective political interests. Col.lectiu Emma would like to comment on a few aspects that may have been overlooked or not given enough weight. [+]
