, People should know that this isn’t anything new. Catalans have been discriminated against and treated as less than human for years now. The spanish government completely ignores the issues and concerns raised by Catalonia and refuse to help them prosper.
This is far more than just independence. This is a human rights issue that people have swept under the rug for decades. This is just like Franco’s reign all over again, where the people of Catalonia are being targeted and brutalized for their culture.
I am a Spaniard and I stand with Catalonia, all for or against independence. I stand with FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol, who still had to play despite the tragedies happening in their community. I stand with Gerard Piqué, Carles Puyol, Xavi Hernandez, and others who are unfairly mistreated by the Spanish media and fans for their heritage and beliefs. Catalan clubs and players should not be constantly targeted and unfairly treated because of their culture.
I stand for their right to voice their opinions and be proud of their heritage without fear of abuse from their government.
