Catalonia intends to proclaim independence in the coming days

50
The head of Catalonia, Carles Puchdemon, stated that the results of the referendum give every reason to local authorities to declare independence from Spain. According to Puchdemon, the Catalan government will decide on the declaration of sovereignty "either at the end of the current week, or at the beginning of the next week."

Catalonia intends to proclaim independence in the coming days


The head of Catalonia, however, noted that if official Madrid again attempts to intervene, including force, it will be "a very serious mistake for Spain."

Recall that at a referendum in Catalonia (despite all kinds of measures by the Spanish authorities, which impede the implementation of the plebiscite), about 50% of citizens who have the right to vote voted. 90% of those who were able to reach the polling stations cast their votes for the sovereignty of Catalonia. Official Madrid declared that “there was no referendum in Catalonia”.

The bureaucratic institutions of the European Union called on Madrid and Barcelona to resolve their differences at the negotiating table. At the same time, Brussels notes that they recognize the territorial integrity of Spain as an integral part of the European Union.

Earlier in the Republic of Abkhazia they declared that they are ready to recognize the independence of Catalonia in the event of its proclamation by Barcelona.

          We have to cut it on the nose: they are them, and we - we who want independence in Ichkeria - have already received the due, in which case they will be transferred to others. And in other countries - those who want to - let them go as they do, it doesn’t shake us, but you can blaspheme, because they joked about Chechnya, calling them rebels.

          I think that in the case of a referendum, the Tatars will not want to secession ... This is a balabstvo of a narrow circle of people, because in the case of secession, Tatarstan will be an enclave without access to the sea and the possibility of trade with the outside world. Without an army, defense and real allies ...

                  Why put the cart in front of the horse. Now the central government is making enough efforts to maintain the integrity of the country. This stems from the fact that this request is not. By efforts I understand not only political and economic measures, but also the strengthening of the power bloc of power in the internal arena.
                  If the population of a certain region wants to leave the Russian Federation, then the solution of the question will depend on the position of the center, but such a turn is possible with a weak and indecisive president who will either allow collapse or use brute force and economic conviction. At the negotiating table, such issues are not resolved, because of the fundamental difference in the positions of the parties, only the surrender of one of the negotiators (under any pressure) will lead to a solution to the situation in one of the parties.

                      There is a right (our Crimea!), But the possibility of its implementation depends on the benefits for the center, as well as its determination and will. Not only in Russia, everywhere, nobody canceled double standards, we can say anything, but the principle of “own shirt closer to the body” here works very clearly! I can be mistaken, but the UN Kosovo referendum recognized, but there is no Crimea and no Catalonia ...

          Personally, the relationship between Catalonia and Spain is not very interesting, let them figure it out themselves. But even if they there in the European Union deny this referendum, then, as already mentioned on the website, let Kosovo’s recognition be withdrawn. I think in this aspect and lies the reason for the malice of many members of the forum.

    And how is Barcelona going to react, if Madrid does make this “mistake”? Are there any ways to influence? Army in Catalonia on the side of Barcelona?
    There will be no independent Catalonia, no one to defend the right of its existence with arms in hand. And Madrid will not let them go peacefully.

    I would not rejoice in the independence of Catalonia, much less sympathize with it. All analogies with Abkhazia, and even more so with the Crimea or Donbass, are inappropriate, because the events in Catalonia are a whim of the well-fed, this, remembering the Tale of the Golden Fish, the desire to become not a noblewoman, but a free queen, no one oppressed these gentlemen, and they don’t get more money necessary, they already have enough, they no longer deserve it.

    Each state chooses and supports a convenient legal norm, the right of nations to self-determination or territorial integrity and inviolability of borders. And while this ambivalence will exist in international law, civil wars will flare up with renewed vigor.

There are a handful of separatists, but they are by no means looking in the direction of Mexico. These are the descendants of those white English-speaking Texans who separated the region from Mexico.

    The separation of Catalonia will create problems for Spain, but for Catalonia itself it will simply collapse ... All their welfare is connected with the transport logistics of Spain, the open market of Spain and the entire EU, a large amount of cargo is transshipped through Catalonia, and now in case of separation everything will come to decline, goods will bypass, and goods will not become competitive due to duties ... With low resources, Catalonia will simply turn into a cheap resort in the literal and figurative sense, unemployment will increase, and incomes will drop ...
    In general, the arrogance of the Catalans amazes me, all of Spain developed the industry and logistics of Catalonia, and now they are unhappy that the rich region pays more taxes than receives subsidies ?! But it should be so !!! It didn’t come to these fools that even fearing the separation, many enterprises had already left Catalonia, and now all the others would leave or simply go bankrupt ...
    Catalonia for Spain, it’s like Ukraine for the USSR, the USSR gave Ukraine a bunch of regions, built a bunch of enterprises, but when it became hard the inhabitants of Ukraine also bought a lie, from a happy future in case of separation ...

      I think that you have exaggerated. The fact that Catalonia - 19% of GDP in Spain - this truth is commonplace. Specifically, the textile industry, shipbuilding, construction, winemaking, tourism are developed. Can not be discounted, the University of Barcelona gives the lion's share of scientific products from Spain. Another thing is that this whole idea of ​​independence is just a whim of the rich, no one will die for it, except for the crazy ones. Without the approval of the Washington Regional Committee and the Berlin City Committee, nothing will come of it. Of course, if some idiots in the style of Ukraine settled in Madrid, then they can do something, but this is unlikely

So what if someone in Catalonia speaks Catalan, in our city the janitors almost entirely speak Uzbek, but independence cannot be declared anyway .... They don’t do that. It is necessary to go to Washington, to bring in how much anyone needs, and then the "comrades" will consider. If the decision is positive, they will call the Berlin City Committee and say, "We here with the" comrades "consulted and decided the desire of Catalonia to gain independence to approve." Then consider. what's the matter with the hat
