Thursday 30th June, Plaça Catalunya Protesters Removed by Police

Plaça Catalunya Back to Normality?

Plaça Catalunya was a crazy site this morning (30th June 2011), with around 500 Catalan police and 100+ Guardia Urbana officers storming the square to evict the last of the protesters who were camping out. The police entered early, just after 2am and warned the campers that they had 15 minutes to leave Plaça Catalunya peacefully, or they would be forced to leave.

As we all know, Catalan Police can be aggressive when they want to be, for this reason, it seems the majority of the 50 protesters that were camping out, left with out any problems. For now, it seems as though a level of normality has resumed in Plaça Catalunya, but for how long?

  • All That Glitters Is Not Gold

    Outward appearance can be greatly misleading. Gold is a very valuable metal. It has an attractive glittering appearance too. But it does not mean that everything which glitters like gold should be precious. There are utterly valueless things that look like gold, and taking them on their face value is unwise. On the contrary, some of the dull looking things possess immense value. Their appearance is in no way proportionate to the great value they have. This is true of human beings also. A person may be good looking having an attractive character. But he may not possess any real ability or talent. He can even turn out to be unscrupulous too. A man must be judged on the basis of his abilities and not on his external appearance. Many of the truly good and great man are humble. Goodness and perfection do not go with gaudiness. Like shining glass pieces which dazzle and glitter like diamonds, the appearance of men can be greatly misleading. Therefore estimation and analysis of people on the basis of mere appearance is an unwise approach according to this proverb.
