This blog writes what many catalan people feel in their hearts. Probably, many Spanish people, beyond Catalonia, don't understand this feelings. There has been a deep and strong work of distortion in all over Spain for the last centuries. Spanish people, all the honest citizens, have been cheated for decades about the plurinational character of their state. They have been indoctrinated in the idea of a only Spain, of a uniform Spain, of a uniform and only nation. It must be hard to accept that the only nation that schoolmasters taught us for our tender years of childhood is really a big state made of many cultures, many nations, many peoples, fraternal nations, fraternal peoples... that for many years have grown together, sometimes due to the force of the weapons.
Milions of persons ignore the reality of Spain. The imposition of Castile has despised any other soul, shelving any other language at the corner of unimportant issues. The aversion to the non understood languages has subjected the state to the chauvinist monolingualism. This monolingualism prevents the full understanding of human diversity and puts roadblocks in the path of the cultural empathy and in the coexistence among different peoples. Ignorance rather than an attribute is an attitude. The fear of different cultures is a human decrease, and a seed of violence and hate.
This blog, besides talking about other issues, tries to express what many catalan people feel about the constant denial of their rights as a people. And this feelings are deeply true and pure.
We wish to express that the will of “being” of a country will never be a reality that be able to harm anyone, because all the peoples have the right to be and to grow in the middle of the lands and countries of the human kind.
This blog is made by a team of Catalan people that has been living in Catalonia for decades (more than forty years) and they feel in their veins the heartbeat of the people. Those who hate one people are really hating all the peoples in the world. Those who respect and hear the feelings and the will of one people are respecting and hearing the feelings and the wills of all the peoples in the world. Dialogue, democracy, peace, tolerance... are the road... Conversely, imposing, prohibition, imposed silence, legal shields, violence... are the worst expression of human essence.
