IamA Catalonian citizen who went to vote yesterday at the referendum AMA!
I will keep my name anonymous but im a young man who lives and works on Barcelona (Catalonia) yesterday I went to vote and I was wondering if some redditors are curious how things are from the eye of a common citizen
Photo I take yesterday when I went into the electoral college
Photo of the ballot
As further proof here's a photo I just took of a ballot I kept as a memoir, both options are crossed I dont quite know why I did it
EDIT: Changed pic, after arriving at the electoral college
EDIT 2:Whew this blew up, thanks for all the questions I will be afk for a few hours now cya!
EDIT 3:The mods removed the post because of lack of evidence, no problem, I will send it to them in a few hours, now im unable too, thanks for all your questions I will keep answering them as long as I can
EDIT 4: Added further proof
EDIT 5: As for now I close the Iama, I have a lot of things to do and I dont want to leave you guys hanging
I want to thank everyone who posted questions and the civility and support I got, as a final note I want to state that whatever your political convictions or cultural bagagge is no country or power should censor the freedom to decide own's own future, or at least to answer a question, the independence of Catalonia is a complicated issue that is made worse by political corruption, intolerance, bigotry and plain obscure intentions by both sides, that keep confronting brothers and sisters which are not different, I dont want the independency of Catalonia, I want the independency to have an opinion and to be heard as freedom of speech is one of the tennants of a mature democracy.
The EU has demostrated once again it's profound ineptitude to protect the rights of its people, I hope fellow europeans can see this and challenge their politicians on ways that neither I or my fellow countrymen couldnt.
I thoroughly enjoyed trying to explain the reality of living here, Spain is a great country filled with great people, from Canary Islands to the shores of the basque country, I know the majority of them mean no harm, sadly the politicians of a country that never quite ended the transition do not represent the beauty and good spirit of its people.
If you want to know more ask a fellow Catalonian, or keep the discussion below with some people that very probably know more than I do, im not a politician im just a citizen and thank you for listening to me something that the government didnt want to do.
Thanks for all the support, Viva España, Visca Catalunya and long life to democracy
