Donna: A ‘right of abode’ in Catalonia that included Catalans born or living outside Catalonia during Franco era etc is a ‘win-win’ for everyone that peacefully resolves ‘no-man’s land’ from Bayeux Tapestry 1066 and Treaty of Utrecht 1714 etc (13.03.2019)

 

Ambassador,

 

I am a Catalan Italian British Australian pipsqueak peacenik.

 

I am not Pau Claris.

 

The Crown of Aragon that included Catalans and the Kingdom of Aragon incl. the thalassocracy and so on arguably formed the first political and legal institutions in the Mediterranean and Europe (that notably included a separation of powers of sorts to limit a monarchy etc).

 

That was all eventually eroded by the Nueva Planta decrees and Treaty of Utrecht following the fall of Barcelona on 11 September 1714, that confirmed ‘spheres of influence’ in colonialism.

 

The expulsion of Jews in Europe that began in 1182 and 1290 during the Albigensian Crusade, eventually led to the Holocaust.

 

Of course, 'El-Bugat' is linked to Arabian /Babylonia/Assyrian mythology about genies and so on, which I guess is similar in many ways to medieval descriptions of conversos.

 

I was raised by a colonial Fremantle-Claris who was not my real parent, who was from the Claris Normans who went to England in 1066.

 

‘This is to notify’ you a ‘right of abode’ in Catalonia incl. for Catalans born or living outside Catalonia during Franco era is a ‘win-win’ that peacefully resolves ‘no-man’s land’ from Bayeux Tapestry 1066 and Treaty of Utrecht 1714 etc etc. Not everyone wants a Spanish passport or citizenship under the recent and rather confusing so called ‘right of return’ from the Spanish Inquisition, incl. because the Kingdom of Spain at the time of the Spanish Inquisition included parts of Southern Italy etc etc and so on and so forth.

 

A ‘right of abode’ is a simpler instrument than treaties and so on and so forth, and could prove useful for a wider EU Constitution in the future too. 

 

This statement is true.
