Catalan 401 Students Participate in the ‘Fem Via’ Human Chain to Celebrate ‘La Diada Nacional de Catalunya’

Catalan 401 Students (Fall 2013) took part in the September 11th Catalonian ‘Diada” by forming their own ‘Via Catalana,’  or human chain. La Diada commemorates the defeat of the Catalonian troops in Barcelona on September 11, 1714, during the Spanish War of Succession. The day-long festival promotes Catalonian identity and solidarity for the Catalonian nation. Well over a million Catalans formed a human chain today, at 10:14 AM (Urbana time) stretching across the greater portion of Catalan-speaking territory in Spain.

Visca Catalunya!
