    Ignoring a warning from the government of Catalonia, a Spanish cardinal on Sunday led a funeral Mass for the victims of the COVID-19 coronavirus, hours after threatening to take “legal action” against civil authorities for the “arbitrariness” with which the right of religious freedom and worship is being treated. Up until Friday, the archdiocese hoped the government of Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region would raise the 10-person cap for religious events that was announced July 17 after a second wave of cases hit the region. This announcement came after the invitations for the funeral Mass had already been sent. However, Cardinal...

  • 14-Year-Old Princess Leonor of Spain Delivers Brave Speech Amid Anti-Royal Protests Against Her Dad

    People ^ | Nov 2019 | Phil Boucher
    Princess Leonor of Spain is not your average teen. The 14-year-old heir to the Spanish throne — nicknamed Spain’s “Disney Princess” for her flowing blonde locks — delivered an important speech at the Princess of Girona Foundation awards in Barcelona on Monday amid a backdrop of anti-royal street protests aimed at her father, King Felipe Vi, 51. (Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a semi-autonomous region in northeast Spain whose push for independence has resulted in the country’s biggest political crisis in decades.) To make matters even more daunting, Leonor — who holds the title of Princess of Girona —...

    FULL TITLE: British vegan activist is covered in blood when 'Spanish farmers chase her down a motorway and shoot through her car window after she freed 14 of their rabbits' A British vegan activist was left covered in blood after farmers shot her through a car window for 'rescuing' 14 rabbits in Spain, she claims. Barcelona-based activist Mia, who goes by the Instagram name 'Mythical Mia', posted video on her social media showing blood on her face and legs. She told her more than 40,000 followers how she entered a rabbit farm in Gurb, Osona, and 'rescued' the animals. However...
  • Dog burial as common ritual in Neolithic populations of north-eastern Iberian Peninsula

    Eurekalert ^ | Valentine's Day 2019 | Bibiana Bonmatí, University of Barcelona
    Coinciding with the Pit Grave culture (4200-3600 years before our era), coming from Southern Europe, the Neolithic communities of the north-eastern Iberian Peninsula started a ceremonial activity related to the sacrifice and burial of dogs. The high amount of cases that are recorded in Catalonia suggests it was a general practice and it proves the tight relationship between humans and these animals, which, apart from being buried next to them, were fed a similar diet to humans'... The study analyses the remains of twenty-six dogs found in funerary structures from four sites and necropolises of the Barcelona region, and has...

  • Scandals pile pressure on Spain’s Sánchez to call early election

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez faces growing pressure from within his Socialist Party to call an early election, before scandals besetting his four-month-old minority government undermine a surge in voter support. Riding high in the polls, Sánchez aims to serve a full term to mid-2020 as he focuses on approving next year’s budget and countering renewed independence moves in the Catalonia region. But last week, his science minister was forced to deny media reports he cheated on his taxes, days after a recording emerged of the justice minister using a homophobic slur. Two other ministers have already been pushed out,...
