Not the government, not the State, it seems. I’m sick in my stomach with the media being flooded by Spanish nationalist propaganda. I’m a feminist pacifist anarchist, so I don’t believe in nation states, for all the violence and discrimination they perpetuate. I can imagine a world where there is respect for cultural identities, individual and collective. In the very moving events (the positive ones, the ones we’re trained to ignore) these days, here are pics of people who are capable of understanding what respect, mutual respect, and dialog is about. Include women, include people who BELIEVE in a less violent and juster world, and you won’t be seeing the load of conceptual, ideological violence we’re witnessing these days.

The young women and men in these pictures are friends who are attending the demos wearing the Spanish flag or the Catalan flag.
