    Madrid: Hey guys know what will turn the nation and world onto our case here? Make them really understand how unreasonable Catalonia is being? Photos of old ladies bleeding from their heads.

    The Nordic Resistance Movement held a rally yesterday in Gothenburg Sweden. Lots of people were arrested once a riot broke out. The movement describes itself as a "national socialist organization" on their website according to this article. Their goal is to create a unified Nordic nation apparently.

    I thought of Godzilla as the embodiment of violence and hatred for mankind, because he was created by atomic energy. He's like a symbol of humanity's complicity in their own destruction. He doesn't have an emotion. He is an emotion. Jun Fukuda

    Didn't see any of the rally or counter-protesting, but the whole thing seemed like a pretty calm affair. Like, I've only heard about two people getting injured. Only thing I noticed was some trams getting cancelled and a helicopter or two buzzing about.

    Certainly turned out alot calmer than it would've been had the nazi march and the anti-facists gotten a chance to really clash. Seemed like some pretty solid policing who funneled them away from each other and made the whole march fizzle out. Read that alot of the nazi dudes were quite dissapointed by how aimless and lackluster it all turned out for them.

    Read somewhere that the police moved the march so it didn't interfere with the Jewish community celebrating Yom Kippur. Nice to know they were alert and kept things under control.

    Those people don't get paid nearly enough for the shit they do. But i imagine that making the nordic resistance "crusaders" feel impotent by robbing them of the opportunity to go into battle and just leave them aimlessly kicking rocks and muttering is it's own sort of reward

    Seriously though, Madrid displays an awful lack of empathy in its handling of the situation, and then the Catalan government comes along and demonstrates itself to be equally incompetent.

    Even with all the shitstorm surronding the event, and the fact that a lot of no voters probably wanted nothing to do with the situation, it's still an impressive and expressive number.

    Wouldn't trust these numbers one bit. Just saw a picture of someone voting 4 times... This wasn't official, the no people just didn't show up due to violence, of course its totally skewed.

    I'd agree that the actual results are pretty invalid and likely not representative of the actual total opinion of Catalan, but it should be enough to justify an official vote on the possibility of secession/independence. It seems like at least 40% of the region wants to leave.

    Only 2'2 million people voted out of 5'3 million. The catalonian government argues that around 700 thousand people couldn't vote because of schools holding ballot boxes being closed or raided by the police.

    Anyways, around 1 hour before the referendum it was announced that every registered voter could vote at any school in Catalonia because of many of them being closed by the police. That resulted in those pictures of people voting several times Afrosamurai is talking about. It also resulted in people voting at the street, carrying the ballot boxes inside trash bags and already filled with ballots to ease transportation.

    yes, it must be at least around 40% as the previous 2014 referendum results show, that one was illegal too but way less messy than this one

    The argument of "if the goers were armed they could have defended themselves" is moot if the attacker isn't in your sight range .

    Eh won't stop the useful idiots from throwing out the usual rhetoric. I even expect the infowars crowd to start with the false flag bullshit.

    This attack is being called the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

    And that's saying something. That's saying a lot in terms of how big this is.

    My condolences to the victims and their families of this completely senseless, pointless, and evil act of violence. There are no adequate words to describe how utterly shitty and asinine these terroristic acts are.

    And all for what?

    Current estimates are 50+ dead 400+ injured.

    They're saying on the radio that this was essentially the best case scenario. The guy had over ten rifles and who knows how much ammo, but the police were able to find him quickly when his gunfire set off the smoke alarm. They blew down the door with an explosive device and the killer shot himself to avoid capture.

    He could have killed hundreds.
