Linguistic freedom is a word that has become obsolete in Catalonia, crushed by a dictatorship that does not respect even the right of children to receive at least 25% of classes in Spanish. A apartheid education whose most sinister face are the so-called “reception classrooms” in which Spanish children who do not speak Catalan are isolated as if they were foreigners, “it does not matter whether they are from Murcia or Morocco”, as reported in this report by Cake Minuesa the representatives of associations and parties that demand that constitutional values be respected in Catalan classrooms.
In these “reception classrooms” Spanish children who do not speak Catalan are put “together with children who come from Morocco, China or Eastern Europe to immerse them in Catalan, missing other important classes, just because the goal is for them to speak Catalan as soon as possible “, complaint Ana Losada, of the Assembly for a Bilingual School in Catalonia.
«In these reception classrooms it is shown that what the independence movement wants is for all children to be trained in a uniform way. What do they call integration, the obligation to impose Catalan? It is a segregating nationalism, “he explains. Angela Herrero, from Catalan Civil Society. The intolerable discrimination suffered by these children sums it up Abel Sevilla from S’hacabat: «They have left 5-year-olds alone in class, for demanding Spanish».
The reception classrooms do not welcome anyone, but are a mechanism that the independence movement has to separate children who do not speak Catalan so that they only study the language, separated in a classroom, which is more behind in normal teaching, already who dedicate themselves to the language with Chinese, Moroccans and other foreigners and that is where they locate Spanish speakers from anywhere in Spain.
As if they were foreigners in Catalonia, they call them newcomers, a condemnation and punishment of any child who does not speak Catalan as the separatists demand of all children.
Catalonia has changed since the sentence in favor of a 5-year-old boy in Canet who aroused the hatred of the independence movement towards an innocent child and his family. “The totalitarianism that exists in the Catalan school has been shown and that is intolerable and despotic,” he says. Jose Domingo of Impulso Ciudadano.
