A number of cyber “attacks” have been carried out over this last week.
The Catalans of the World site (run by my friend Sergi Marzábal) was first to be hacked.
On his home page Spanish flags were inserted along with a number of extreme rightist messages, and the apparent warning: “All this is just the start!”
The site has been now temporarily deactivated and but provides an explanation about the ‘fascist attacks’ on it.
Other sites to have been sabotaged during the previous few days include the Catalan political parties CiU, ICV i ERC as well as the organisations Solidaritat Catalana per la Independència and the Federació d'Ateneus de Catalunya ('Ateneus.cat').
All of these have recently shown support for Catalan national indepenedence.
