Tensions et extrémisme, l’Italie blessée après Macerata

Le titre mentionne la mauvaise nouvelle du cruel assassinat de Pamela. Les dynamiques ne sont pas très claires, mais paraît-il que le vendeur de drogue nigérien Innocent Oseghale, le même qui lui a fourni l’héroïne, l’ait tuée et découpée avant d’essayer de cacher le cadavre, aidés par des complices. Luca a le journal dans les mains, il pose son demi verre de bière et se tourne vers Matteo, assis à la table du café avec salle slot-machines où l’on se retrouve chaque soir après le travail – pour ceux qui en ont un – ou à 18h30 – pour ceux qui n’en ont pas.

« Putain ! T’as vu qu’est-ce qu’ils lui ont fait, ces genre d’animaux ?! »

Tensions and extremism in Italy, the Macerata wound.

The titles of all the newspaper talk about the cruel murder of Pamela, a young Italian girl. It is not clear yet what happened to her, seems that a Nigerian pusher gave her some heroin before killing her, cut her body in pieces and tried to hide her corpse.

Luca is holding the newspaper in his hands, put his pint of beer on the table of the pub where his friend Matteo is sitting. The pub is one like many others in Italy nowadays: there is a slot machine room in the back and people meets there after work (for those who still have it) or at anytime for those who do not.

“Have you seen what the hell have they done, these animals?” he says to his friend

Tensioni ed estremismo, l’Italia ferita dopo Macerata.

Il titolo riporta la notizia della brutale uccisione di Pamela, le dinamiche non sono chiarissime, ma pare che lo spacciatore Nigeriano Innocent Oseghale, che le ha ceduto l’eroina l’abbia uccisa e fatta a pezzi prima di provare a nascondere il corpo della giovane assieme ad alcuni complici. Luca ha in mano il giornale, mette giù il bicchiere con la birra a metà e si rivolge a Matteo, seduto al tavolo del bar con sala slot in cui si trovano tutti ogni sera dopo il lavoro – per chi ce l’ha – alle 6 e mezza per chi non ce l’ha “Hai visto che cazzo le hanno fatto sti animali?!”

A dead-end road for Catalonia

Since 2012 every 11th September mass protests in favour of the independence take place in Barcelona coinciding with the celebration of the national day of Catalonia, in which the defeat of Barcelona by the Bourbon troops during the Succession war that signified the elimination of the autonomy of Catalonia is commemorated.

That day, the 11th September 2012, became an inflection point for the sovereignty movement in Catalonia. After that moment the current Catalan government understood that a great part of its electorate was supporting the independence, so the main catalanist political parties (the ones that are focused on the regional and local politics and do not run for national elections) began to opt fort the objective of turning Catalonia into the next European nation. The obtaining of an absolute majority in the autonomic elections in October of 2015 became the starting point of what is called as the sovereignty process, which will end the next 1st October with the celebration of an independence referendum.

Picture 1: The last 11th September around a million of pro-independence protesters crowded the streets of Barcelona.

Un callejón sin salida para Cataluña

Desde el 2012 cada 11 de septiembre se vienen celebrando en Barcelona multitudinarias manifestaciones a favor de la independencia de Cataluña aprovechando la celebración de la Diada Nacional, en la que se conmemora la caída de Barcelona frente a las tropas borbónicas que tuvo lugar durante la Guerra de Secesión, significando la pérdida total de autonomía de Cataluña.

Esta fecha, la del 11 de septiembre del 2012, supuso un punto de inflexión en el movimiento soberanista catalán. A partir de éste momento el vigente gobierno catalán vio claro que gran parte de su electorado se había posicionado a favor de la independencia, de forma que los principales partidos catalanistas empezaron a apostar fuerte por la el objetivo de convertir a Cataluña en el próximo estado europeo. Tras obtener la mayoría absoluta en las elecciones autonómicas que se celebraron en octubre del 2015, se inició el denominado proceso soberanista que culminará el próximo 1 de octubre con la celebración de un referéndum sobre la independencia.

El pasado lunes 11 de Septiembre más alrededor de 1 millón de manifestantes a favor de la independencia invadieron la ciudad condal.
