Homage by Catalonia?

The Official Gang of Barcelona:

BARCELONA – The infamous urban gang the Latin Kings has been legalised in Catalonia, according to the newspaper El Periodico de Cataluna.

The Latin American gang has been the centre of a number of police investigations for street violence and clashes with its rival gang the Ñetas.

However, the regional government in Catalonia, the Generalitat, has approved the gang’s naming as a cultural association.

From now on, it will be called the Cultural Association of the Latin Kings and Queens of Catalonia.

.... The legalisation means the Latin Kings are now eligible for the benefits associated with being a legally registered body, such as financial aid, grants and subsidies.
