A President of a Nation declaring in court for having wanted to let people express their opinion in a non binding referendum

  



 The political party of Artur Mas, the President of Catalonia, and his allied parties, won the elections of the last september 27, and won by absolute majority. The process of independence that these parties defended goes on, but the dark hand of Spanish Government tries to stifle the voice of the people with dishonest tricks, like the obstruction of the votes of the catalan people who lived abroad, or the imputation of the president for having put the ballot boxes in the banned referendum of the last november 9. Catalan society is upset for this fact: a President of a Nation declaring in court for having wanted to let people express their opinion in a non binding referendum, the same day that other president (Lluís Companys) was murdered by Spain, in 1940; the only European elected President that has been shot by a dictatorial state.The imputation of Artur Mas shows the authoritarian character of the spanish political system, a system that emerged from the last dictatorship, a system based on a constitution drafted during the tense period of the political transition, with the army of Franco staring every step and sharpening the sabers. Many european politicals (like the mayoress of Barcelona, Ada Colau) have expressed their stupor for this absurd imputation.
Catalonia will not retreat. The more they despise the people, the more Catalonia will stand up and move forward. We believe in those values that make the peoples worthy of their free fate: freedom, democracy, peace, hope, fraternity...
And we need the help of all the free countries.

Nudity is not promiscuity. Naturists are not swingers.

Many people confuse nudity with sexuality; but human sexuality is present in all parts of human body, not only in the covered areas.
In my case, I defend the exercise of a responsible sexuality within the family. I believe in freedom, of course, and everyone can do what he wants, but in my personal life, sexuality belongs to family; it is a matter of my wife and me.  On the other hand, I think that a united family is the best place where children can grow up. I think that love should be present in all human relationships. When I say love, I mean really the love, empathy, will of good for people I love. Feeling is neither the cause nor the essence of love. Feeling is an usual result of love. But love is more than feeling . I can say that I love you  when I want all the good for you, in spite that the good for you doesn't mean a pleasure for me, in spite that the good for you means an effort for me. I bathe naked on the beach, and I sunbathe naked, that's true... but I do not prete…

Order is not enough

Order is not enough.  If the order appears because of the repression...  If there's no freedom, what will the life be like?  Safety, order, uniformity, silence, urban harmony, richness, dominion... What are those goals for... if we are not free to dream, fly,  change the life, overcome all that is established, run away from routine, seek a newer world?  What would our prestige be for if we were'n able to sit on a beach and sing a song to the sunset in a warm summer night? What is our elegant suit for if it denies us the pleasure of feeling the wind, the sand, the sun, the water... in our whole skin?  What is our life for if we don't experience surprise?  It doesn't do any good to grab gold chains if they are heavy and ungrateful.  We are born to be free.

The soul of the current Berlin. Hackescher Markt. 39 Rosenthaler Strasse. Haus Schwarzenberg.

There's a place in Berlin that can't be defined. In the 39 Rosenthaler Strasse, there's a discreet and disguised gate; a hole in the front of some old jew houses in Hackescher Markt. Beyond the gate, we find a magic courtyard, with thousands of Graffities, and many strange doors that guide us towards strange and secret spots. In this gloomy courtyard there is an arts cinema, a couple of alternatives cafes, galleries, some strange shop. This place has an atmosphere of anarchy, as we were in the pre-war slums. There also is a museum about Anna Frank.  Some people say that this place is an oasis in the middle of the gentrified heart of Berlin. Others have said that for getting a proper feeling of the soul of the current Berlin you have to go to Haus Schwarzenberg. I'd say that this uncommon point in a tech town expresses what Berlin is and what it hides inside its meaning.
