THE IDEA OF THE NEW SPANISH REGION OF TABARNIA

Barcelona / An initiative to create the new autonomous community of Tabarnia is triumphing in social networks, where it has been the subject of strong adhesions, ironic criticism and even demoscopic analysis, because proposes the separation of Catalonia after its formation with several towns, in Barcelona and Tarragona, where independence is less important.

Tabarnia is a concept devised some time ago by the platform ‘Barcelona is not Catalonia’ with the objetive, says the website, of creating a “global political option with the cosmopolitan, open, bilingual and prosperous areas of Tarragona and Barcelona in a independent region of the Generalitat “.

The initiative uses arguments similar to those used by the independence groups to defend the right of Catalonia to separate from Spain.

So far, it had remained far from the media focus but in the last hours, half joking half seriously, it has resurged strongly in social networks to become “trending topic” on Twitter, with 648,000 messages in that social network, according promoters.

The idea was born shortly after the Catalan elections on December 21, in which the independence movement revalidated its absolute majority, but Ciudadanos was the most voted party, especially in the areas that would form the new autonomous region.

The platform ‘Barcelona is not Catalonia’, which was born in 2012 before some of its members were integrated into the Catalan Civil Society, has also created a flag for Tabarnia, a mixture between the Tarragona and Barcelona badges, and claims “a binding referendum of autonomy with all guarantees “on the separation of this hypothetical new spanish region.

Several leaders of Citizens have echoed in the networks of the initiative, among them the winner of the Catalan elections, Inés Arrimadas, who has written that Tabarnia “is an occurrence that puts the independence movement before the mirror of its own contradictions and of the fragility of its arguments. “

And while some pro-independence voices have criticized trying to create false concepts to try to divide Catalonia, an initiative to collect signatures has been promoted already to bring to the Congress of Deputies the proposal to becomes Tabarnia into a new Spanish autonomous community.
