    Brutal crackdown on police against Catalonia's independence demonstrates a reality. Democracy and freedom in the modern world is a slogan to deceive the people, right to self-determination but tied in people's hands, long live freedom and right to self-determination, long live Catalonia the fighter . I'm a Kurd from Kurdistan.

    These are criminals, committing felonies. The force these officers are using should be met with and exceeded, up to the use of lethal force.
