Catalonia Reborn with Chris Bambery and George Kerevan

About Catalonia Reborn with Chris Bambery and George Kerevan

Why do most people in Catalonia want independence from Spain? What is the history behind Catalonia’s struggle for independence? And why has the Spanish government employed such Draconian measures to prevent the possibility of Catalonian independence? These are questions that George Kerevan and Chris Bambery will provide answers to in Catalonia Reborn: How Catalonia Took on the Corrupt Spanish State and the Legacy of Franco.

2017 saw Catalonia come under the world’s spotlight as it again fought for independence and the preservation of its unique Catalan culture. Detangling the complications behind the fight for independence, Kerevan and Bambery use the past – the rich history of Catalonia’s language, culture and political background – to explain the present, covering defining eras of the region from Franco’s dictatorship to the 2017 independence referendum and elections.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Catalonia Reborn with Chris Bambery and George Kerevan are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
