This is a non conventional post.

You all know the sentence "Visca el Barça i visca Catalunya", specially cos during the speeches of the celebrations the players say it at the end. 
But what does it really mean? Why is Barça so important for us Catalans? What does the club represent for us?

This is a documentary in english called "Spain's secret conflict" made by Gary Gibson. It explains the situation Catalunya and Spain are living and for a bit it talks about Barça. I think you should watch it to learn more about the country your club comes from.
We don't have the words "more than a club" just as an ad or because they sound cool.


An Ibi post. This time about a different attribute of his.

Afellay, the man who brought the Berber flag at Camp Nou.

The Dutchman, son of Moroccans, has become a hero among young Berbers after he wore the flag of the Amazigh nation on Sunday for the Champions League celebrations with FC Barcelona .

Afellay, born in Holland and son of Moroccan immigrants, has never kept it a secret that he feels part of the Amazigh nation. The Amazigh, or Berbers, are a people of North Africa who live in parts of the states of Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Algeria or Tunisia. They have traditionally been a nomadic people who lived in the desert, but for decades now they have also started living in a sedentary way in different areas such as in Alhucemas, the north of Morocco, the Ibakuyen region, where the parents of the football player were born. This area, located near Melilla, has always had a great Amazigh presence. The Amazigh are a nation without a state who fights for the recognition for their language and identity in states where they haven't always been given any rights.

This is an amazing project. My mother is a teacher in Salt, one of the towns where this is going to take place and i am super happy they are starting this since it's a very troubled place with so many issues and i am convinced this is going to help many kids.
Apparently there's rules like each team has to have at least one girl and the team can only win the match if the girl has scored a goal.
I will try to keep updated about this and provide further information when it's going on.
With this, once again, we prove that we are indeed more than a club. <3
