Exactly. It's all like it was, society is really divided in two halves.

Some interesting data is anti independence won on the biggest cities and both Barcelona and Tarragona counties. Whereas on Lleida and Girona pro indepence parties are very very strong.

But some "fascists" (as all anti independence people are called) had to go to vote with bodyguards and being insulted and shouted by mad people. while the "oppresed" parties could launch a thousand fake news, win the elections and form a (regional) government.

This Tabarnia thing is brilliant, because they are putting a funny mirror in front of them.

Some totally serious reactions by pro independent people on twitter:

"If Germany jails him I will return the Audi "

"They caught him just before holiday so we can't protest before two weeks"

"It was all surely planned by him, right?"

Welcome to the opressed posh revolution!

opinions on the extradition?

www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-26/puigdemont-extradition-bid-may-spark-long-german-court-battle

seems as if the german court may even deny the request.

Only one of the charges and because there's no equivalent on German law. Judge says there was violence and denies politic prosecution.

So I won't deny I am deceived but nothing to celebrate for the independentists.

The fascist Spanish parliament changes the government with the help of the nationalists and the same week a Catalan is chosen as the foreign minister. The independentists are fuming, what will they lie about now?

fairly hefty sentence.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-49974289

Spain's Supreme Court has sentenced nine Catalan separatist leaders to between nine and 13 years in prison for sedition over their role in an independence referendum in 2017.

looked a juicy story until that does not include bit. :|

www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50039790

The federation says the suspension is to show solidarity with the leaders and their families and covers all of its official football and futsal matches.

It does not include La Liga or the Spanish national team.
