O Captain! My Captain!
There is a judge in Berlin
As much as one can not like Mr Puigdemont very much, that one orchestrated in Spain against Catalunya indipendentist is a judicial persecution. Wisely enough, they had withdrawn their request of extradition while Puigdemont and company were in Belgium but now they tried again in Germany, probably counting on political linkages and support.
They were wrong. There is a judge in Berlin and he said what anybody could have confirmed: the independence movement in Catalunya could be wrong, could have broken some laws and regulations, might have not respected the will and right of many Catalan citizens but was indeed a political process publicly presented to the citizenship and public opinion from the beginning and having got a majority of votes in the local Parliament. And, probably the most important, did not use violence. Let’s hope that could continue.
