El clasico is tomorrow! Those are days full of tense in Catalunya. That’s why the La liga officials postponed the Barcelona vs Real Madrid clash in the first place. More on that here. @Sujoy Pritam about the preparations for tomorrow.
According to ever reliable @moillorens and @samuelmarsden, Authorities in Catalonia are planning the biggest security operation in Clasico’s history. For Wednesday’s game between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
More than 3,000 police officers and private security agents have been drafted in for the match. That’s due to concerns over demonstrations planned by Tsunami Democratic, a protest group advocating for self-determination in Catalonia.
Those sentences sparked protests across Barcelona. Many organised by Tsunami Democratic, and there was another one planned for the day of the game.
The match, which will draw an attendance of 100k was rescheduled for Dec. 18 and Tsunami Democratic subsequently called on people to convene at Camp Nou four hours before kick-off on the day of the rearranged to send a message for Spain and Catalonia to “sit down and talk.”
12 Catalans separatists are in jail for 9-13 years of prison for ‘rebellions’ as they called for a referendum. The Madrid government saw these actions as illegal. Spain has harshly condemned any referendum- in other words made it illegal.
We don’t want to influence you into thinking whether it’s right or wrong. This page isn’t about that. We are writing about that because it’s worth mentioning it as our beloved club has called for free political discussions, and clearly states ‘Prison is not a solution’. Furthermore, the club has stated their support for the families of the condemned ones-which brings us to today’s point: Our slogan.
Mes qué un Club -more than a club
Tossing political debates aside, we hope for a great El clasico tomorrow between the biggest rivals in the world. And we wish for a win for the good guys, Barcelona!
