Al Jazeera’s Karl Penhaul reports from Barcelona.
Translated from Dutch daily De Volkskrant today:
The 70-year-old Albert Ferris Pellicer was for twenty years a migrant worker in the Netherlands and with him memories of the dictatorship of Franco are now coming back. He also came this Sunday to stop the police, with a picnic basket on his back. “We live under a dictatorship. We did not know, but now we found out”, he says. “They send armed forces against us. But surely we are not jihadists? It’s a dictatorship, just a bit softer. We are pseudo-free, we know now.”
Today Catalans realize that the Spanish dictatorship never stopped.
