    Catalonia riots: Did Spain break all of the rules of democracy ?

    Post by papa_umau on Mon Oct 02, 2017 11:26 am

    THE PEOPLE OF CATALONIA ARE BEING RIPPED OFF BY SPAIN.

    Catalonia referendum: region holds emergency meeting after tumultuous poll.
     
    Regional parliament will discuss next steps towards declaring independence from Spain after early results show 90% in favour.

    The Catalan regional government is holding an emergency meeting to discuss the next steps towards declaring independence from Spain a day after millions of Catalans voted in a tumultuous poll that left more than 800 people injured.

    Preliminary results from Sunday’s vote showed that 90% of people cast their ballots in favour of independence, according to the Catalan government.

    At least 844 people and 33 police were reported to have been hurt on Sunday after riot police stormed polling stations in a last-minute effort to stop the vote.

    Read the whole report from The Guardian HERE




    As Spain is supposed to be part of the free world and a member of the European Union why did they think they could get away with brutally hammering down the FREE will of the Catalonian people ?

    If democracy is not upheld here I think that Spain should be thrown out of the EU and the rest of the free world should soundly condemn these actions.

    What say you ?

    The actions of the Madrid government against the settled will of the Catalans was not only barbaric, but it was totally without any form of democracy.

    In the next two days it is said that the Catalan government are going to announce full independence from Spain and then we will see the next step Spain are prepared to take.

    I just hope that to save any more bloodshed they ratify this desire and make Catalonia a fully independent nation.

    The Spanish supreme court has ruled that any declaration of independence by Catalonia will be unlawful and that it will not be recognised by Spain.




    This is heating up to only one solution: War.

    It happened with the Tamils in Sri Lanka and it has happened in many other places all around the world.

    When a parent government refuses to give a breakaway sovereign state independence there is bound to be eventual war.

    There are many states around the world that were once in the rule of a much larger state, ( Britain with it's Empire was one of the more obvious ones ), but eventually, all of these states that wanted to get freedom from British rule got it.

    If Scotland had voted for independence it would have got it too.

    I do not understand why large parent states refuse to give the people of subsidiary states the freedom that they ask for. Spain and Catalonia are a perfect example of this.
