This timeline covers the Spanish region of Catalonia, and it’s attempts to separate from the country Spain. They’re attempting to do this by building a lot of popular support, and engaging in ‘Noopolitik’. Which is political strategy focusing on the manipulation of international processes through the manipulation of positive/negative attitudes via mass media. PR, given a nice political spin. Spain has been very helpful in their quest for sovereignty, as they have been generating all sorts of unsavory events.
