Harsh times and milder climates, by Josep Maria Fonalleras

The history of the Assembly of Catalonia, 50 years later, it is written with the testimonies of the clandestine date, with those of the 113 who were later imprisoned, and with the reconstruction of that symbolic, Adamic act, promoter of democracy. It is also written with controversy, that of the comparisons between that fact and the resonances that those claims have in our present. The commemoration in the Parliament of Catalonia has been one more episode of the mess of mixing times, circumstances and political objectives. With all the right in the world, Raimon Obiols he complained that he had not been invited. Laura Borràs’ explanations in relation to this forgetfulness (and others) have been “evasive and evanescent & rdquor ;, as Obiols himself has said. Argue that it was an act intended by a “self-organized collective” and that (a joke in bad taste!) there was no list of the reprisals because “the repression of the moment made it difficult to disseminate it & rdquor ;, they are excuses for a bad payer. A logistical error that I’m afraid hides a deliberate historical misrepresentation. I am left with the last words of Obiols in response to Borràs: “I hope this surly weather will give way to a more lenient climate & rdquor ;.
