Independència per Catalunya JA [Independence for Catalonia NOW]:


No translation into Catalan or into any other language, not even into
Chinese, is supplied.

Somehow, using only English in a case like this doesn't feel right.
Using a foreign language to urge people to speak their native
language?! What up wit dat?

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
