Spanish Government Prepares Martial Law To Crush Catalonia Freedom Bid

The struggle of the Catalonian people for freedom has taken a sinister turn as Spain has sent in the army to ‘support’ riot police. It is an especially sinister development as the President of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont has stated that Catalonia will declare formal independence ‘soon’ with this widely expected to mean on Monday.

Mr Puigdemont has become embroiled in the last couple of day in a bitter war of words with the Spanish government and the King of Spain, King Felipe VI, who earlier intervened to criticise the Catalonian’s bid for freedom as ‘scorning’ all Spaniards.  Puigdemont hit back accusing Felipe of being a ‘mouthpiece’ for the Spanish government and supporting policies that have been ‘catastrophic’ for millions of Catalans.

Catalonian patriots meanwhile have been facing criticism from the Spanish left that British patriots will find all too familiar:

The former president  and leader of socialist party PSOE Alfonso Guerra has defended the decision to send the Army into Catalonia in case the police were not able to control the situation created by a “pro-fascist” independence movement that is attempting “a coup d’etat”

The European Union meanwhile has sought to strong-arm Catalans into remaining part of Spain. Both the centre-right European Peoples Party and centre-left Socialist and Democrats grouping have united in expressing only lightly encrypted support for the Spanish state.  A spokesman for the EPP told the Catalans bluntly to leave Spain would be to leave the EU and a spokesman for the Socialists and Democrats insisted there must be ‘respect’ for the Spanish Constitution.

Clearly, a crunch is coming. Whatever Spanish authorities say, the movement of the army clearly points to the governments intent simply not to allow Catalonia become independent. It also points to the ominous possibility that the government may be preparing to impose martial law on Catalonia in the event of a mass movement resisting the Spanish Guardia Civil. The next few days will clearly be decisive in the Catalans fight for freedom and the future of Spain and the EU.

UPDATE: The constitutional court of Spain has suspended the sitting of the Catalan Parliament on Monday due to discuss independence in another sign that the Spanish government is preparing to crush Catalonia with force.

    REASONS TO BE CHEARFUL, if you are British !
    Voices from Scotland made it known that they wanted a vote for separation from the British union. The vote age in Scotland was adjusted, upon the wish of the Scottish Nationalists, who then lost the vote, so we continue as an unchanged union. The world saw how the matter was handled, and evaluated the benefits of Democracy. England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland can all be proud of this Democratic approach, and our Head of State, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, took no side in the matter.
    Now look upon Spain’s approach to the same question from Catalonia. A vote on separation is not given. The Catalans go ahead with a vote of their own. Spain over reacts, due to their lack of involvement. Police are drafted in as ”Riot Control”, and are followed by the Army. In all of this, Spain would hold to the belief that they are a Democratic Nation. Spain’s Head of State, The King, gets involved against Catalonia. The EU cannot keep its opinions to itself, and the Catalans are rounded on as not being European.
    I started to travel by air or car, in the early 1960s, and have been to every European country, (This included Andorra and Gibraltar), but a guy named Franco was in charge of Spain, and I would not spend my money in his country, due to an Uncle of mine being involved in his war, and my objection to Fascism. I was probably the loser as parts of Spain are very beautiful. But there we have it, Spain that is a near neighbour of ours, fell into fascist hands, and although a King now wears a crown, the administration considers that Franco’s ways are still OK, and the EU is in favour of this !
