Situation in Catalonia ‘World’s First Internet War’ – Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange described the current situation in Catalonia before the region’s referendum on independence from Spain as world’s first internet war.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) —  He explained the statement, saying that both Barcelona and Madrid are actively using IT to achieve their goals.

​On Sunday, Catalonia is expected to hold an independence referendum. The Spanish federal government has filed a complaint with the country’s Constitutional Court over the Catalan government and parliament approving the law on the independence vote. The court has taken the complaint under review, outlawing the plebiscite.

He added that the tensions around Catalonia’s vote could be described as the most significant western conflict between people and the state since the fall of the Berlin wall.

Opinion polls show that Catalonia’s independence is supported by 41 percent of its residents, with 49 percent against it, while as much as 80 percent of Catalans are in favor of the referendum itself, most of them believe that the vote should be agreed upon with the central government in Madrid.
