Charges are being brought against the Catalonian leadership for rebelllion. Their parliament has been disbanded. New elections have been called.

What more do you want from Spain?

More freedom is always better. Good for the Catalonians!

This is both a blue print and a live model with all the succesful strategies and misteps laid out for any state here in the US or any colonial territory that wants independence.

Thats what dictatorships do.

No wonder Catalonia wants Out.

Dictators have the judicial branch file charges under existing law?
They make the effort to disband a political entity for acting outside the established law?
They call for new elections for the very people who claim they want independence?

Sounds a lot like Crimea so maybe you are right.

Oh wait.. Spain didnt invade a sovereign nation and hold elections while they under occupation.

Maybe at this next election a majority of the people affected will vote instead of allowing a vocal minority run the agenda thats not supported by the majority.

They already voted. Disbanding parliament isn't going to change those results nor the outcome of the referendum. Neither will jackboots, clubs, or mass arrests.

No - they held an illegal referendum where the majority of the affected population did not vote. They did not vote because the election was illegal.

Just like in Crimea.

The 90% bs is derived from the people who voted and not from the entire voting population. A majority of people in the region do not want to leave Spain.

So what will Madrid do when the new elections return the very same people to power? Or more likely, make the pro-independence faction even larger? At some point, they're going to have to abandon the pretense that they're representing the will of the Catalonian people.

Hard to vote when the police are attacking people in the streets and sabotaging the poll stations.

You must be the last Murican around or something, the authoritarian cult Of King George is strong with this thread. Some fun-facts:


The Spanish-American authorities banned the circulation of the Declaration, but it was widely transmitted and translated: by Venezuelan Manuel García de Sena, by Colombian Miguel de Pombo, by Ecuadorian Vicente Rocafuerte, and by New Englanders Richard Cleveland and William Shaler, who distributed the Declaration and the United States Constitution among creoles in Chile and Indians in Mexico in 1821.

Mt guess would be Spanish law wont allow people to run the region from inside a prison cell.

Hard to claim the vote is valid when its done illegally and the majority of the population didnt support it.

What does reprinting and circulating our declaration have to do with Spain?

I've yet to see a country other than South Sudan, Former Soviet State or the European decolonisation of Africa that did not unilaterally declare independence which was seen as illegal by the previous state.

Britain didn't take too kindly to the declaration of Independence as i'm sure you're aware.

Funny that Kosovo gets recognised despite illegally declaring it's independence unilaterally yet not Catalonia.

Did the American people "vote" or their independence from England?

*crickets* indeed

Independence is earned, it is fought for, it is paid for. It doesn't come from the end of a pen.

Except that many people didn't want to get a beating just for heading to the polls. Maybe, eventually. Who would've thunkt! Nice spin though, lets just deny the fact that another police state went full blown berserk again. Well. Played.

Well said.


You mean well TYPED

Except in the USA. Muh popular vote


We have a different election system. No comparison. the Pop vote is MINORITY because it does not represent ALL states due to population. 3 states do not a majority make. Yall had no issue with it till this election so spare me.

You must've missed a lot of modern history.

Particularly the Palestinian people's decades-long war of resistance against their occupiers.

The UK has said it does not recognise the independence declaration because "It is based on a vote that was declared illegal by the Spanish courts. We continue to want to see the rule of law upheld, the Spanish constitution respected..." If the vote was legal then the result would have been respected.


Funny that Kosovo gets recognised despite illegally declaring it's independence unilaterally yet not Catalonia.


Comparing Kosovo with Catalonia is comparing two different things.
