Masquefa scarred political violence
The little town of Masquefa (Anoia) has attracted a lot of attention in Catalan media this week. It all started on October 12 – el día de la Hispanidad -, when García Mora, a town councilor from the local party Força Masquefa, put up a Spanish flag on the local town hall (ajuntament) and then sat waiting in his van to see what would happen.
