Inés Arrimadas, leader of Ciudadanos Cataluña and of the parliamentary opposition, speaks to the press outside the building of the Municipal Council of Les Corts, just after voting for the catalan parliamentary elections of 21st of December. --------------- The Island of Catalonia "So often we need a whole lifetime in order to change our life...", José Saramago, "The Stone Raft". José Saramago, the great portuguese writter, in his book 'The Stone Raft', describes how the Iberian Peninsula, by a strange work of Nature, was separated from the rest of Europe and start drifting in the Atlantic Ocean. Maybe something similar is happening now to Catalonya, maybe, by the most uncommon reasons, it has been separated from the rest of Spain and transformed into an island that drifts alone in the Mediterenean sea, where it becomes more and more a kind of isolated land, exiled, imprisioned on its own contraditions and sailing with no destiny. This pictures represent only one way of telling the story of the political situation in Catalonia during the last months of 2017. It seems this is a story with no happy end, one that speaks of standing up for something, but also of sectarism, intolerance and democracy put in stake. One where perhaps none of the intervenients saves his face.
