A Cat’s i-view: An autonomous ’10 June’ Golan in Israel, could become beacon of stability with ‘avant-garde’ of clean renewable energy to protect Catalan and Jewish people & address EU & Arab double standards on independence of Catalans and Palestinians (as majority of people continue to vote for ‘none of the above’ on most political fronts everywhere) (04.05.2019)
I am a Catalan Italian (British Australian) mixed race and religion ‘converso’ called Donna Bugat which has in some ways proved to be of itself ‘controversial’. This is because Catalans who are intrinsically an Italian liquorice allsorts, that includes French, while also essentially being a thallasocracy too, are ‘officially’ confined to a tenuous enclave in what is called modern Spain.
Brian and myself were in many ways, a miniature version of Catalonia in Parliament Square, Central London.
I am personally first and foremost a mum and authentic civilian voice for peace who really has walked the talk, and can do international law too.
The UK referendum along with general and local elections confirm what most politicians have known for a long time, that most people will vote for ‘none of the above’ because peaceful reform of the global colonial Treaty of Utrecht is overdue. (A remain in the EU team in the UK should help build bridges by supporting a mayoral candidate who commutes from the continent, which is not very different from MP's or MEP's who can live and work in different constituencies or countries anyway.
The pension on medical grounds from the Australian government over my torture and exile from the UK, while I am in Breizh in France (which I would win anyway in a legal case at the ECJ -and- ICJ) is one part of a journey, I can’t really deny (because sometimes I am in pain that in turn does makes it difficult to concentrate etc). The other part of a journey I would in some way love to see, is an autonomous Golan in Israel regardless of the Golan’s ‘final status’ because that would help in so many ways, to protect both a Jewish State -and- Catalonia.
The Mediterranean Bugat family who are neither European or Arabic, have lived in the mountains and valleys around the Mediterranean and through Eastern Europe to the Central Asian steppes for many centuries. We reflect the European and Arab myths about djinns/genies and conversos, which disguises the echo of families who have endlessly been divided by ‘lines in the sand’ drawn by others ‘empires’.
I don’t personally understand how Mr Assad could object to a genuinely autonomous Golan that progresses beyond those ‘lines in the sand’ and I don’t understand why some Muslim people say they want Mecca, Medina -and- Jerusalem too.
The British and Australian intelligence services who posed as my parents and godparents completely changed my identity when I was a child during the Franco era that in some ways never really ended for me, because the adults around me always continued one version or another of their lies. Therefore, I had so many obstacles to try and overcome even as a child because I had to try and find a way through so many obvious lies from adults around me who cruelly stole absolutely everything about my whole cultural identity.
There was no such word as Catalan in the world I grew up in, and there was not a single Italian in the adults social circle or any of their culture, because they openly considered them ‘inferior’ and I quote “wogs and dagos”. In those days of ‘whites only’ Australia (and not much has changed in politics) casual racism, which I guess in those days, was modelled on the goose-stepping Duke of Edinburgh (Phil the Greek) was commonplace. A religion was imposed on me that has never been practiced by either ‘side’ of my real family. So there have been many pieces of a missing jigsaw puzzle to try and find and make sense of, in and among so much real pain, including because no-one ever even wanted me to find my family or my way home.
When I became a mother myself, well, nothing was more important to me than my two sons, and being able to be a mother to them. That was the sum total of my ‘aspirations’ in the world. To be a mum to my two sons and what all that means.
The question of what is ‘home’ for Catalans, is however, too often difficult on so many levels, because of course our world from the times of the Phoenician ‘purple people’ is a combination of the continuing story of thalassocracies and exile.
It is strange but true that I was technically (although the truth is in the bigger picture of the money invested the global Treaty of Utrecht etc) unlawfully ‘arrested’ 48 times, tortured etc and exiled from the UK so one male, their top cop Lord ‘void ab initio’ Blair could collect his… pension. The fact I am a female Catalan Italian British Australian ‘mixed’ race and religion ‘minority’ converso made much foreseeable really.
One of the main reasons I don’t like the ghoulish voyeurism of ‘journalism’ is because Lord Blair just had the BBC originally publish whatever he wanted, when he was the top cop in the UK, without any ‘consent forms’ or ‘fact checking’ so Lord Blair’s original Mother’s Day 26 March 2006 lie which was never corrected, despite him losing in court, just grew, because everything was a lie in a very simple cover-up. The very straightforward cover-up in an ‘extraordinary’ miscarriage of justice, hid one relevant witness statement, under a mountain of superfluous witness statements by the top brass at what really was New(s) Scotland Yard. There were just politicians, police and global corporations all ‘competing’ among themselves for control of anti-competition legislation I forced the repeal of that was being used against the public.
These days, Catalans like myself, who were born outside Catalonia during the Franco era have no rights at all, while those who live in the official Catalonia only have very tenuous rights, albeit France did have a Catalan PM Valls, from Barcelona. Catalans have nevertheless, unlike Palestinians who were offered independence after World War Two, never even been offered independence, because of course Catalans still lived under the military dictatorship of Franco at the end of WW2. Madrid would recently have done better putting the UK’s top cop on trial, rather than Catalans.
Palestinians will undoubtedly find their own independence from and through first and foremost their own politicians, who most Palestinian people know, are no better than politicians anywhere else. Palestinians main problem is arguably, like elsewhere, their own politicians. The Palestinian political leadership do not really explain why they didn’t make Gaza a Monaco of the Mediterranean some 70 years ago, or why Gulf royals et al, who aren’t short of a few bob, do not help out more. Where is the Palestinian politicians own peace plan ? There is always going to be an abundance of energy resources in the Arab world who have oil -and- clean renewable energy.
There has been too much rotten governance and war because governments everywhere benefit from artificially inflating the price of oil, one way or another.
I can’t really deny that in my own heart I genuinely believe real autonomy which is living peacefully within a functioning legal system, is the only true way forward, because that is what my experience of so many years on one all too real front-line in Parliament Square, Central London confirmed to me.
There are many good reasons to explore the idea of Independence for Catalans that has nothing to do with and is regardless of any politics, which along with the politics of Israel, like elsewhere, I often profoundly disagree with. However, I believe a truly autonomous Golan, which would be a beacon of stability with the unlimited potential of clean renewable energy, is the progress that will actually serve to protect both Catalonia and Israel and make them sustainable.
