5 thoughts on “Catalonia: Discusses Eurovision Participation Hopes”

  1. We don’t need another “fake nation” like the Serbian province Kosovo. Nationalism and separatism destroys the European idea, so NO to an independent Catalonia and a big NO to a Eurovision participation!

  2. The author should avoid all-inclusive language at all costs. It is clear that Catalonia is not ‘discussing’ Eurovision participation independently from Spain, but rather than ‘some in Catalonia’ are planting this discussion, as a considerable majority are either indifferent or wanting to be continued to be represented as part of the Spanish entry.

    “Source: El País”… Seriously? The author would do good to consider the neutrality of their sources prior to using them as the sole provider of “information.” Cheers.

    1. This article was only written due to the fact that it was being discussed in the Catalan press. I believed that readers would be interested in the situation in Catalonia and the regions previous links to the competition through Spanish and Andorran participation in Eurovision.

      The article is based upon the currently hypothetical situation that Catalonia would declare independence from Spain. At no point in the article do I feel that I have taken a stance on the matter over whether they should or should not be independent from Spain.

      Regarding El Pais I recognise that the paper may be biased towards independence but that the topic was still of merit. We did an article last year on Scotland and their independence referendum regarding Eurovision participation and again made it clear that we were not taking sides on the debate. Regarding using the newspaper as the sole source for the information, I had read other Catalan reports about hypothetical participation but El Pais was the most informative and concise in their summary of the idea.

      Thank you for your criticism though and we fully welcome comments on our work.
