Marching in Barcelona on Oct. 1, 2017

The Spanish state’s brutal attempt to repress the Oct. 1 referendum for self-determination of Catalonia boomeranged on the Madrid regime. Instead of squelching the vote, brutality aroused massive anger and resistance. This boosted the independence movement of the Catalonian people and pushed the working class to the front.

The people of Catalonia have the right to decide on their status. And they certainly have the right to vote in a referendum without fearing clubs and rubber bullets from the national police and Civil Guard.
