Facebook closes a catalanist group

20091113 - facebook els catalalans no som espanyols

The group “Els Catalans no som espanyols” (Catalans people aren’t spanish) was closed by Facebook as members of spanish facebook groups reported the catalanist group to Facebook admins as being offensive to them (Link in catalan).

This again shows how the antidemocratic behaviour is still deeply rooted in the Spanish society and how uncomfortable are the Spanish with freedom of speech. Luckily the group has been reopened and in a few days has regained 6500 members of the 16000 it had before closing.

Carles Móra, the mayor of Arenys de Munt, the little village were the independence referendum took place las september is one of the honorary admins of the group.
