Many Grains of Sand
A sourcebook of ideas for changing the world, tried and tested in Catalonia
Many Grains of Sand is a collection of photographs and stories that give witness to the creativity and variety of initiatives being undertaken by the people of Catalonia in order to win their independence peacefully and democratically.
The objective of the book is on the one hand to serve as inspiration for other activist movements around the world, and on the other, to offer Catalans themselves a new perspective on the progress they have made in their struggle.
The book gathers 537 photographs from 170 photographers and covers the period from the beginning of the negotiations over the Catala Statute of Autonomy in 2000 through to the renewed demands for an official, binding referendum at the end of the summer in 2016 from civic groups and politicians alike, passing through six massive, peaceful demonstrations.
