The Protest

October 8th, 2013 emquin15

Witnessing the Mallorcan protest to protect their language, and therefore a large part of their culture, was a blessing.  Usually, I hate crowds.  The massive amounts of people make me feel claustrophobic, overwhelmed, and panicked.  In this crowd, however, I felt a sense of gratitude and peace.  I wanted to scream out the Catalán cheers and wave a green flag in the air.  I believe photos and videos speak louder than words, so I have added many below.  All in all, I hope that the Mallorcan and Catalonian people receive the rights they deserve.
