The manifestation, realized in order to demonstrate and demand to Catalan authorities that people want a free border to receive refugees and migrants, started at 4pm and finished at 8pm. Over 300.000 people (the biggest manifestation in Europe) made Barcelona and Catalonia the capital of solidarity again, as in 1993 against the Bosnian genocide (50.000 people) and 2003 against the Iraq war (1,3 millions).

 

Blue, because of the sea (the Mediterranean Sea, lately denounced as the “Mare mortum”), and “home” are the symbols of the campaign “Casa nostra, Casa vostra” (“Our house, Your House”), a campaign supported by hundreds of organizations, including all the civilian society.

Workers of the Spanish public television channel (TVE) denounced that every image containing the Catalan independentist flag or “estelada” was censored. As it is usual, the reality is distorted by the speech created by power.
