Finally made it back to Barcelona after ICGAC's campaign in 2010. Turns out there is more to do than sit on the beach with buckfast. I even came back with photos this time. Didn't manage a run round town in a full Kilkenny kit though. #ICGAC #Gaudi #Catalonia #catalanindependence
“It is rather pathetic that a powerful country like Spain should feel the need to place the counter-narrative of a movement like ours, with very few resources, at the top of its foreign policy agenda. But at the same time, I understand why they are doing it. Because even though we have few resources, we have truth on our side. And it is very difficult to fight against people who have truth on their side.” Carles Puidemont has been fighting for Catalan independence, even after fleeing into exile two years ago. In this exclusive interview, he discusses the movement, and why “Catalonia is everybody’s business.” Link to full interview in bio. 📷 Getty/Odd Andersen
Included in this series from #girona #catalunya : Some members of our tour group, including some guy dressed in all black I thought was kinda cute...more calls for #catalanindependence ...in Girona even the saints wear yellow ribbons...everyday life happening on the ancient Main Street...the stairs from an important chase scene in #gameofthrones ...and various textures. #latergram
Our bus trip to Figueres to the Salvador Dali museum also included a walking tour of Girona, another 2,000 year old city which our tour guide says considers itself the cultural capital of #catalunya . “Girona is said to consistently win a country-wide poll of citizens on preferred city to live in. Geographically set at the confluence of the Ter, Onyar, Galligants and Güell rivers, it has been a focal point of this region in Catalonia since prior to being part of the Roman Empire.” - Wikitravel . . . I took SO many photos here and Instagram will only let me post 10 at a time, so I’ll try to narrate points of interest in each batch. What I didn’t realize before the tour is that SEVERAL important scenes from #gameofthrones were filmed here - no spoilers for those who are behind, but you’ll see the steps of the Sept of Baelor here as well as key backdrops from the city of Braavos. So far I’ve “accidentally” visited #got filming sites in two countries - UNINTENTIONALLY! I’m not sure what that means, if anything. . . . In this first batch - crossing the oldest existing bridge in #girona and heading into the Old Town. Pretty much everything that wasn’t nailed down has some sort of declaration for #catalanindependence on it. We asked our guide - carefully, since we knew she couldn’t really express an opinion in her professional capacity - and she said that while #barcelona is split on the subject, pretty much without exception the outlying areas are majority for independence. There are also some towns with a more industrial bent that are more split, which makes sense. #latergram #medievalarchitecture #medievalcity

Maybe this photo makes sense b/c Mercury will be headed back into retrograde soon. Seems like the current theme is that many decisions are arising & people keep telling me that they don't know what to do at presented crossroads. Well, like @cirossy says, don't make any harsh decisions during #MercuryRetrograde . Allow yourself to sit in it - even if it's a heavy tornado stirring up dust that you thought you'd cleaned up... it's fine not to have the answers over night. I sure don't. If you're struggling, join us for our #NewMoon circle on Thur night (3/7: link in bio) to get you thru the storm. . This photo is really about the painting in the background +my relationship w/it. The detail here is from a painting entitled 'Catalunya' that I made last fall. Maybe this relationship is similar to the 'dust kicked up' scenario of retrograde... b/c that's how I feel about politics around #CatalanIndependence ... . For #fridayintroductions , I am sharing about my relationship with Catalunya. I lecture about 4x a year as a guest Art & Architecture Expert for @smithsonian in Portugal, Spain & Italy. Besides absolutely loving every second of it, I mainly do it to keep one foot in academia as an #arthistorian + another in the countries in which I've lived (that way it doesn't feel as if I ever really left). . Barcelona is the city where I completed my MA & my second home. I'm getting ready to go overseas again. As I review my lectures on the History of Catalunya, I begin to get a bit sentimental about the political drama that escalated late 2017. - . This painting was an outlet for me to process some of the emotional trauma I experienced witnessing the Spanish military march into the city when people were voting for their independence. The depression I experienced & still feel when the topic arises. My idol #AntoniTapies speaks much about the richness of Catalan culture & my connection to him also inspired the pain in this painting. Swipe right to see the full piece. What do you feel when you look at this? - . If you wana know more about the situation in Catalunya OR specifics about the story behind this painting, there is a link in my bio to a blog post. 📸 @leahbeilhart

なかなか面白い旅になってる。 カタルーニャ独立運動に遭遇。近くにいた人に聞いたところ、車道に大人数で座り込んでたらしい。写真はその座り込みを、両腕を掴まれて1人ずつ解散させられている風景。 中学生くらいの子供たちも黄色いリボンを胸に、カタルーニャの旗を振りかざしながら通りを歩く。 政治的な見解を書くつもりはないけれど、あちこちでやれ離脱だ、やれ独立だ、やれ毎週デモだ、EUは大忙しですね。 #spain #catalunya #barcelona #street #manif #newsphotography #eurotrip #welltravelled #catalonia #catalanindependence #ue

Tens of thousands have gathered in Madrid demanding Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez resign after his plan to hold talks with separatists in Catalonia. Catalonians voted to separate from Spain in an unofficial independence referendum in 2017, the government rejected the result which saw violent clashes and senior figures in the referendum campaign arrested. The Spanish government has been trying to ease tensions by appointing an intermediary for talks which opposition parties have described as ‘treason’. Protesters gathered in the Capital’s Colon Square chanting “long live Spain” – with police putting the total at 45,000. #spain #madrid #catalonia #catalanindependence #barcelona #pedrosanchez #protest #demonstration
