Jesus fucking Christ.
Look, I don’t believe that Catalonia should be it’s own nation. Not yet anyway. They only got 37% turnout in their independence referendum, and with turnout that low, they shouldn’t be their own country.
But in no way, should an independence referendum be illegal!
Puidgemont was simply holding a referendum to see whether a growing movement had achieved a majority.
And the way Spain has tried to suppress the independence movement, makes them the oppressors of the Catalan people.
And the saddest part is that no European power has the balls to stand up to this injustice.
