When the Catalans banned bullfighting, they were ridiculed by the rest of Spain. Spain is a country that cannot embrace it’s own diversity.
Catalunya is a cash-cow for Spain, and yet it is constantly berated and abused by the Spanish central government.
As an outsider, I refuse to say if the Catalans should have independence or not. But it is easy for me to observe that Spain has treated one of its own provinces very badly.
And that should be easy to change, but not under PP.
I think the ridicule came because they banned bull fighting due to “animal cruelty issues” but then refused to ban the practice of attaching burning torches to the horns of a bull and then chasing it around the local village before slaughtering it because that was deemed part of Catalan culture
