Opinion: The Guardian view on Catalonia’s referendum: the Spanish state has lost

Police brutality has ignited the political crisis. Can Madrid and the pro-independence movement find a way forward?

Spain is in crisis, and its prime minister appears to be in denial. The run-up to Sunday’s referendum on independence for Catalonia made it clear that the country was in trouble.

But neither those arranging it nor those rejecting it can fully have anticipated the scenes at polling stations: police in riot gear beating peaceful protesters with batons, dragging voters out by the hair or throwing them down stairs, firing rubber bullets to disperse crowds – even striking at Catalan firefighters and jostling with Catalan police.     [READ MORE]

Richard David is a Winner! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Richard David

He did it his way. He believed that in the end the support of the community would push him over the limit and onto victory.

Richard David fell short, but not by many. In the three-way race there is no question that he emerged as the most popular candidate. There is no doubt also that Richard won the hearts and minds of the community.

Statistics matter. In each race we were brought a step closer to the door of victory ‘on this side of the Van Wyck’ and given time it will happen. But Richard David brought us to the brink. He made us believe in ourselves that victory is not some pipe dream; it is actually attainable.

Guyana’s Community-based tourism impresses Barbados team

Guyana’s Tourism was once again showcased as a team of Barbadian Tourism experts conducted a five-day “Fam: trip” (Familiarisation Tour) organised by the Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA).
