Ambergris Posted August 5, 2004 Share Posted August 5, 2004 Well, if u don't know Gibraltar is a big rock in Spain but actually it's a part of the UK. Here the problem, because the britons took the place long time ago and illegally when Spain was in a war against France. The thing is that there's been some problems between the governments of both countries (Spain and Britain) because the United Nations (UN) said that the territory belongs to the Iberian country (Spain) but in a voting of people that actually lives in the rock voted to be at British domain. In fact, Gibraltar defiantly celebrated 300 years of British ownership yesterday, casting aside a barrage of protests from the Spanish government. Anyway I think it's really interesting, if u want to know more about the situation in Gibraltar go to the nearest library from ur home :P :lol: Or go to http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2004/08/05/wgib05.xml&sSheet=/news/2004/08/05/ixworld.html Ok, what do u think about it??
