Spain’s King declared ‘unwelcome person’ by town in Catalonia

Berga, a northeastern town declared the king of Spain an unwelcome person, dealing another blow to the monarch who has faced scalding criticism for going on an elephant hunting trip during a severe financial crisis.
The town council of Catalonia approved a symbolic motion proposed by the pro-independence Popular Unity Candidature (Candidatura d'Unitat Popular) declaring the Spanish King “persona non grata,” or not welcome.
International press as 'The Washington Post" or 'The Guardian' published the new.
On April 14th Spain’s king Juan Carlos was wounded in an elephant hunting trip in Botswana. This is the king’s fourth surgery in almost two years. Elephants are protected all over Africa, and hunting them is forbidden since 1990, but apparently he had a permit. The 74-year-old monarch used a special chair to hunt, which came at an extra cost too. All in all, his hunting trip cost around 40.000 €.
