Comunicat a la premsa internacional sobre la reacció espanyola a l'opinió del Tribunal Internacional de Justícia

Friday, 23 july 2010 | General
El Col·lectiu Emma ha explicat la reacció espanyola a l'opinió del Tribunal Internacional de Justícia sobre Kosovo ("Spanish reactions to the ICJ's opinion on Kosovo").   Després de reproduir alguns aspectes de la sentència que conclou que un estat no es pot declarar indivisible d'acord a la legalitat internacional, constatem com el Tribunal Constitucional espanyol ha quedat en evidència en la recent sentència sobre l'Estatut, quan repeteix fins a vuit vegades la "indisoluble unitat de la nació espanyola".

Spanish reactions to the ICJ's opinion on Kosovo

Friday, 23 july 2010
We would like to bring to your attention some interesting reactions in Spain to the recent advisory opinion given by the International Court of Justice on the matter of Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence. The Court has recalled in its opinion that “during the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries there were numerous instances of declarations of independence, often strenuously opposed by the State from which independence was being declared”. It also states that the scope of the principle of territorial integrity, invariably invoked by States trying to outlaw such declarations, “is confined to the sphere of relations between States”. [+]

Reply to the New Statesman

(Reply from Col·lectiu Emma's good friend Tony Strubell to a New Statesman article).     More on Catalonia Dear NS Editor,   As a satisfied subscriber to the New Statesman, I'm happy that the vast Catalan demonstation held in Barcelona (10th July 2010) got coverage in the July 19th edition. I happened to be in Barcelona that day and witnessed the event. It was truly impressive. One million people out there to counter the decision made by a seedy Madrid court -studded with Franco nosaltgics- against the Catalan Statute. [+]

(Recomanem aquest article en italià escrit pel periodista italià Daniele Germani, publicat al Giornalettismo el 14 de juliol del 2010: "L’Europa e la questione catalana: perché non si può sottovalutarla".

Articles recomanats al Irish Times

Wednesday, 14 july 2010 | General, Irish Times
El diari Irish Times publica avui un editorial ("Catalan conundrum") i un article del periodista especialitzat en temes espanyols Paddy Woodworth ("World Cup win will only paper over Spanish cracks"). En un moment en que sembla haver-hi certa confusió en la premsa internacional a l'hora d'interpretar els esdeveniments a Catalunya és refrescant veure opinions com aquestes, i hem considerat oportú reproduir-les aquí. Catalan conundrum World Cup win will only paper over Spanish cracks [+]

(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. [+]
