THIS IS A PETITION TO OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, IF YOU AGREE, SIGN IT FOR WE CATALANS

Support the People of Catalonia in their effort to decide their own future

The People of Catalonia, the Northeastern region of Spain, would like to hold a referendum on whether or not they would like to become independent from the Spain. The Catalan people have their own distinct language, culture and traditions that are not being respected by the Spanish government; many Catalans do not feel Spanish, but rather a Catalan citizen without their own State. In 2012 during their national holiday, 1.5 million people took to the streets of Barcelona to demand independence, yet the Spanish government simply ignored them. In adherence to the guiding principles of our own Declaration of Independence, we ask the United States government to stand with the Catalan people's right to decide a future that is best for them through a fair and democratic referendum.

You've already tried this before. Keep politics off the forum.

This forum is not really a political soap box. We don't really want these types of discussions here because often they cause hard feelings and arguments. Religion and politics and puzzles simply don't mix.

I for one will never post about the bid for independence that Wisconsin and the UP (Michigan) have discussed for as long as I remember even if I think it's a good idea.


As bmenrigh has stated, you did post this before and once is enough. I am therefore locking this thread.
