The September 11th Day in Catalonia has caused some good news. The first is that the evident division of separatism is increasing. In addition to the whistle on Aragonés in the Diada demonstration, it is very likely that the candidates led by Esquerra, Junts and the CUP will be joined by another from the ANC and another from Alianza por Cataluña, the supremacist party headed by the mayor of Ripoll. , Silvia Orriols. The second is that the mobilization capacity of the sovereign entities is increasingly less and they failed significantly. Despite the nonsense of the organizers, who announced that eight hundred thousand people had marched in the North Korean march, it did not even reach eighty thousand. Consider that the Urban Police, which is in the hands of the PSC – the partners of ERC and Puigdemont – said that there were 115,000 attendees, so you can already imagine the truth.
The separatists not only do not go to the demonstration, they no longer even watch it on TV3. The audience for the broadcast of the ANC’s North Korean march was at a minimum and was four times lower than that recorded in 2017, just over one hundred thousand people. And the great milestone of the separatist day was putting a sticker on the plaque in the Plaza de España to rename it Plaza del 1 de Octubre. That is what the great deeds of the Catalan independence movement have remained.
But the best thing is that little by little people are no longer silent and are beginning to show their exhaustion with the lies and, above all, the heaviness of Catalan separatism. Not only are they fanatics, they also give shit all day and exhaust the most patient. On the eve of the Diada, in the Tarragona town of Salou, a hundred brave people went with their red flags to a torchlight march called by radical separatists and sang without complexes “I am Spanish, Spanish, Spanish” and songs against Puigdemont . And on the 11th, at the old Santa Creu hospital in Barcelona, three entities (Somatemps, Cataluña Suma and DENAES) held a tribute to the fallen on both sides during the War of Succession with the national flag presiding over the event.
Let’s keep going. In a video that went viral, it was seen how a lady displayed a Spanish flag on her balcony while the Diada demonstration was taking place on the street. Despite the insults and whistles she received, she stood firm, enduring her reddishness. Small gestures are important, and even more so in front of a mob. Finally, after the Diada Societat Civil Catalana has announced that it will organize a demonstration on October 8 to protest the possible amnesty and the referendum. Although it was not at all elegant that SCC announced it without first having tried to make it unitary by grouping and informing the rest of the constitutionalist associations, it must be made clear that it is a necessary and laudable initiative, and that it deserves everyone’s support.
So we will go on October 8 to tell Jaume Collboni, Salvador Illa and Pedro Sánchez what we think of their dealings with the separatists and populists. It is good that the Resistance to secessionism is active, since what the hegemonic PSC does not do – democratically fight the independence movement – we people who oppose an exclusive Catalonia that seeks to destroy democracy in Spain will have to do.
