Spain: Satirical 'Tabarnia' secession rally held against Catalan independence

Tabarnia, a satirical anti-Catalan independence movement which calls for the separation of Barcelona and Tarragona from Catalonia, held its first large-scale demonstration in Barcelona on Sunday. Around 15,000 people attended the rally, according to Barcelona police. Demonstrators waved Spanish flags and chanted pro-unity slogans. Tabarnia puts forward the idea that if Catalonia were to... Еще separate from Spain, anti-independence areas would in turn separate from Catalonia and so on, in an attempt to highlight what they see as the irony of the Catalan independence movement. Tabarnia‘s platform was created by the ’Barcelona is not Catalonia’ collective, as a parody of the Catalan independence movement. The name is composed as a portmanteau of Tarragona and Barcelona regions, areas in which the independence movement is less popular, and Narnia, for its fictitious character. The group has been present on social media and in local media outlets. They have even created a flag for the imaginary territory and became a worldwide trending topic in December.
