Provaci ancora, Catalogna

Non si spegne il sentimento indipendentista in Catalogna: ieri, 4 luglio (fin troppo scontato il riferimento all’Independence Day statunitense), a Barcellona si è tenuta una manifestazione a sostegno del referendum per l’indipendenza indetto per il 1 ottobre dal governo regionale (non nuovo ad analoghe iniziative). Una consultazione indetta in maniera unilaterale e senza alcun confronto con la capitale, afferma il governo di Madrid, che la considera pertanto non legale.

Il governo catalano, almeno per ora, non ha comunque fatto passi indietro: anzi, nonostante l’opposizione di Madrid, ha dichiarato che se a vincere saranno i sì l’indipendenza verrà proclamata entro 48 ore. I manifestanti, sventolando la bandiera catalana (la “Estelada”), hanno esposto urne elettorali a sostegno della consultazione.
