The good people of Enough is Enough did this excellent article, part of a series of interviews done in Barcelona regarding the current situation of the Independence of the Catalunya Region.

On November 18, 2017, they spoke with Xavi, a member of Negres Tempestes (Black Tempests) a pro-independence anarchist collective in Barcelona, about the so-called Catalan process.

Pro-independece? Almost every anarchist is pro-independence. These people are praising a nationalist political party called CUP and defending a referendum that legitimised the state. There were only two options: stay in Spain or create a Catalan republic. Those anarchists defended and voted in the referendum, why? Don't try to fool us, we're against the state.

Is pro-independence in the context of the Procés. Many self-described anarchist participate inside the CUP, the CDRs and have a really though time finding their ground between their views and supporting a Catalonian Republic that will end in just another capitalist State.

The votes of today just reflected this perfectly. The most voted party was Cs, followed by ERC and JxCat. The most voted parties all sit at the right-spectrum, and some activists still think that a Republic will bring a government like Rojava, or even a slightly-leftist government? They are blind to the reality.

I just shared the information, but I don't really support it. Of course I'm in for of declaring independence, emancipation and the right to self-determination, but not to just go and build yet-another-State, people will never be free if they keep pushing for the same apparatus that suppresses them.
