The brutal suppression of voting in the referendum was indeed fascist behavior.

I wonder when ISIS moves in to help.
Or some other group comes in or another one starts up to start the terror attacks in Madrid.

The EU was involved in destabilising the former Yugoslavia and actively encouraged the minorities over there to revolt in Bosnia then Kosovo. Surely what's good for the goose is good for the gander?

Does Catalonia have their own army, if not they can't do much but submit
Having fled to Brussels to escape rebellion charges and perhaps a lengthy prison sentence, Catalan (ex?) leader Carles Puigdemont, who quietly fled Catalonia over the past few days, held a press conference at the Brussels Press Club. Puigdemont said that the Catalan government sees the upcoming regional elections, called after the imposition of Article 155, as a “democratic challenge” and will accept the results.
In a multi-lingual, rambling speech, Puigdemont - who appears to have almost capitulated in his crusade against Madrid - said he would respect the results of the snap election called by Madrid in response to the declaration of independence by the province’s parliament. He then called on the Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy to say if he would do the same. Puigdemont also reiterated his support for democracy and peaceful resistance to Madrid’s pressure on Catalonia, and said he arrived in the Belgian capital to put the issue of Catalan independence “in the heart” of the European Union.
