Andreu Cabr? is a Catalan graphic artist who's lived in the US for close to twenty years, working and raising a family. For a long time he was disconnected from Catalan politics, but four years ago he began following Catalonia's independence process, and decided to get involved out of a sense of civic duty and solidarity. He connected with Help Catalonia, a volunteer-run website dedicated to educating the international community about Catalonia's cause, where he focuses on translations and editing.
Help Catalonia is a digital media made with the collaboration of many different persons with the objective of spreading the word on the situation of the Catalan nation, sharing objective data about the silent war Spain is waging against this millenary people and hoping to increase the awareness of the international community in this important matter.

Did you know that Catalans are forbidden to call a referendum about their own destiny or that they would be one of the richest countries in the world if they just weren't plundered 10%+ of their annual GDP?
