Glad to see our definition of being "taken seriously" has become so  
degraded that canned, generic responses to White House petitions will  
suffice.



Quoting Yosem Companys <companys at stanford.edu>:

> Support the People of Catalonia in their effort to decide their own future
>
> The People of Catalonia, the Northeastern region of Spain, would like
> to hold a referendum on whether or not they would like to become
> independent from the Spain. The Catalan people have their own distinct
> language, culture and traditions that are not being respected by the
> Spanish government; many Catalans do not feel Spanish, but rather a
> Catalan citizen without their own State. In 2012 during their national
> holiday, 1.5 million people took to the streets of Barcelona to demand
> independence, yet the Spanish government simply ignored them. In
> adherence to the guiding principles of our own Declaration of
> Independence, we ask the United States government to stand with the
> Catalan people's right to decide a future that is best for them
> through a fair and democratic referendum.
