The mayor of Girona was speaking on Sunday noon during an act by the Catalan National Assembly, which brought together 1600 people and which has denounced the fact that Spain is stealing money from​​ Catalonia. Specifically, he pointed out that every second Spain gets 512 euros from the Catalans, which means 16,000,000,000€ (sixteen bilion euros) a year. He also said that the Spanish autonomous model is not working and is impoverishing Catalonia.
