die tageszeitung compares Spanish regional nationalists to Franco

The taz has been obligatory reading for the thoughtful German green-left for the last 30 years. It has no particular sympathy for airline companies or Joachim Hunold. Highlights from a piece published June 14 (via MM):

It is true [actually it isn’t–but Tobias Büscher isn’t the only one to make this error]: Franco prohibited regional languages and regional culture too. But the dictator died decades ago and his then victims are practising this ancient language policy themselves: they are excluding Spanish… The question remains as to how you say “international understanding” in Catalan. In its current sense perhaps “I don’t care.”
