The Spanish Police ignore Catalans

Catalan MonitorNews Roundup



The Spanish Police twitter account congratulates society for its behaviour after 17A attacks. It does so in eight langauges (Spanish, English, French, Portuguese, Italian, German, Russian and Arabic). But not in Catalan. And Catalonia is where the attacks have occurred and the country suffering most victims.

This is the kind of treatment the Catalan people receive at the hands of the Spanish administration. Catalans seem not to exist. To have no rights. To only count if they speak Spanish, pay taxes to Madrid and stay quiet. Any form of complaint is met with accusations of “victimism” and “insolidarity” with the “rest” of Spaniards.
