I've read that in Warsaw's news. I'm sorry to read that, Kris :hug2:

I've just watched the news on the Catalan TV, but only the second half of it. I'll try to watch it full later  :unsure:

I do not think it is that important to be broadcasted elsewhere then in neighbouring countries - and I guess Spain has a load of its own problem now - I guess :-)

And thank You for the links Esther, I will try to read them... asap. I am interested in the stuff - why and how and such is it with Catalunya.
But then again, who does.

Kris, I think I missed an "it" in my previous post. I meant that I watched the alcohol thingy in the news, but only the second part of the news... So I'll try to watch it on Internet later, as it is usually uploaded there.

About the Catalan demonstration and wish for independence... it's not an easy subject, and it has deep roots (although some international press tends to say it has been mainly triggered by the crisis). The Financial Times dedicated their editorial to that question two days ago, and I've read the news in The Guardian in extense... I see it's quite widespread, although, of course, not in the top news of the day (execept here).

That image, found on FB, can be very lightening about the reason of so much independence desire in Catalonia... Later I'll try to explain better the roots (only a light summary), but it's said that an image can be more powerfull a thousand words... so here I go!! (below the image, the explanation!!)



First frame: a guy with the normal Catalan flag. "Oigan" = "hello", "hear to me"...

Second frame: all things usually said to Catalan by certain Spanish media (and people who hear that media), like "unsupportive", "cretin", "buffon", "blackmailer", "Polish"*...

Third frame: more insults: "nazis", "separatists", "selfish", "pest", "parasites"... The guy leaves the Catalan flag and...

Last frame: the same guy, who didn't feel independentist, with the "Estelada" (the independentist Catalan flag)


That's one of the reasons I was at that demonstration  :ninja:

*Polish: yes, it's said like an insult. Don't ask why, Catalan people are called "Polacos" (Polish) in a pejorative way. A theory is that, as we speak another language, and they don't understand this language (even when Spanish and Catalan are very similar!), it's like if we were talking Polish. We're sometimes said "talk (to me) in Christian!" (as if we were talking some barbarian language non understanable for Christians???).

So today we will find out who we chose as our president for next 5 years. I want this time to be already over... even though I am sure that the candidate I prefer is not the one who will win :(

A former socialist called MiloŇ° Zeman. With too many corruption affairs connected to him already :( Besides, he's really not made for such post - he's a redneck. I mean, seriously, he behaves like one and that is not appropriate for such position.

It's a really weird story. For many days, no one has noticed the Golden cookie missing (not massive gold but of high sentimental value to the company). Oh, and for some reason the articles keep emphasising that this is not, I repeat: not a marketing campaign by Bahlsen. :lol3:

Cheers!

Hey folks,
 
I come here with a bit of international news... I believe you all have got a chance to register what happened in Vatican! It's quite a big "halo" around this. Here's a short article on BBC...
I find myself quite interesting that Ratzinger decided to resign. He did seem to be quite a different person 8 years ago. Also it is about six hundred years since the last time a pope decided to resign.
What do you think (if you do have anything to add...). I am curious. Cause it also means a new election. Our newspapers are quite fascinated by the possibility that the next pope might be "black".

He decided to resign on Varg Vikernes' birthday. Coincidence?

And btw, there's a video on BBC portal Lightning strikes St. Peter's Basilica as Pope resigns :roll: That's what I call a sign!  :nana:

Even popes deserve the pension, aren't they? :)
