'...until Catalonia is free...'

just as 
a certain shot 
was heard all around 
the world

those first rubber bullets 
fired in Barcelona
will bounce...

until Catalonia is free !

The majority of people have spoken and their concerns need to be addressed. Whether total independence or more autonomy. They feel they are different people and they have been wronged and taken by force in the 20th. century. I hope they can solve it peacefully. An excellent and concise poem, sir Tony.

A pebble tossed into a lake can become a rush to shore or a gentle ebb; who knows in this case, but history shows that once a ripple starts it can become unstoppable.

I have been to Spain many, many times and I find the Spanish to be not only wonderfully laid back; but extremely welcoming and friendly. Be shame to drive a wedge, but it seems now to be the order of the day.

Beccy.

A straightforward write on a complex issue.

As far as my opinion goes they are all Spaniards at heart. I am no expert on their history. Just a shame another modern day peaceful people's movement has to descend into violence. The way of the world now.

Democracy. Don't believe all the hype.
Spain has spoken.
A simple referendum would have stopped all this madness.

My husband and I were in Barcelona in May and we had no idea what was to come in Cataluna Square or on Las Ramblas. I just hope whatever happens next will not cause injury or death. The scenes we see on TV are terrifying. Lydi**

This world is a ridiculous and insane place. I say stop the world i want to get off. Give every one their freedom. In fact lets have a world government ruled by those with wisdom. Would not it be good to live in peace. Sooner or later this world will go up in flames because of all these crazy power struck people. Nice read, my friend....Peter
