The resolution, which states that the parliament “publicly recognizes that the system applied by Israel in the Occupied Territories is contrary to international law and is equivalent to the crime of apartheid,” was passed on Thursday evening by the Catalan Legislative Chamber, sparking concerns that other legislatures in Europe may adopt similar positions.
