Catalonia Formerly Declares Its Independence Today From Spain - Civil War On The Horizon?

The world has been keeping its eyes on what has been happening in Spain over the last few months...It has been bad enough that the Spanish economy has basically imploded and the entire nation is quickly becoming like Greece where it has a tremendous amount of odious debt owing to the criminal Jewish bankers, but we also have the region of Catalonia wanting to break away from the Spanish republic and declare itself as a sovereign state.... 

Well, at the beginning of this month, the Catalonian regional government ran a referendum to see if the people would either decide to stay with Spain or declare themselves as a sovereign nation... And the results were overwhelmingly in favour of Catalonian independence and to break away from Spain entirely... AND after that vote, the Spanish government in Madrid first declared the results null and void and then threatened to clamp down on the Catalonian government officials and the Catalonian people and even send in the military to prevent the region from breaking away... Things were definitely beginning to heat up, and the threat of a full blown civil war was on the horizon..... 

Well,  today the autonomous region of Catalonia in northeastern Spain formerly has declared its independence from Spain in spite of the burgeoning threats by the Madrid government to impose a state of "martial law" on the autonomous region and turn it into a police state...  To fill everyone in on the details of this formal declaration, I want to present the following link to an article from Russia Today that covers today's action in great detail:



I honestly do NOT like what I am seeing happen in Spain with the Catalonians now declaring their independence... As I have stated before, the Spanish nation is already in dire straits economically with a debt load that can never be paid back... And now we have the region of Catalonia, with its great manufacturing industry that the Spanish economy is dependent upon, now officially declaring its independence from the Spanish republic... Things could get very messy and very quickly indeed...

My fellow Canadian truth seeker, Greencrow, put out an article last week that called the situation in Catalonia very "complicated"... And she claims in the article that we may be watching another "Maidan" like what happened in Ukraine starting to unfold in Spain... Here is the link to that article here for everyone to read for themselves:



OK,  calling this situation "complicated" is putting it mildly... For I do not like what the Madrid government is considering doing to force the Catalonian people to stay with Spain, even if it means a brutal crackdown on the region!

I do have a hard time though with Greencrow's claim that there was an "insurgency" in Catalonia for this push for Independence.. The Catalonian people do have a very proud history, and seeing their attainment of more self government in the region was indeed just one step before actually declaring full independence.... However, I will give her full credit for she has shown in the article some interesting aspects that does make someone stop and say ... "Hmmmmm".....

The bottom line is this... We may indeed be witnessing a full blown civil war unfolding in Spain very shortly.... And with that there will indeed be bloodshed and the chance that the state of Catalonia will be subjected to the full force of the Spanish military and potentially be left in ruin..... And yes, as I have said already in some of my previous weekend rants, better negotiations between Madrid and Barcelona would be much better than a civil war where nobody wins...

More to come

Hi NTS

Thanks for linking and commenting on my post re Catalonia. As a Canadian, you will remember that the Quebecois were truly and deeply committed to having their own country back in the 60's and 70's. This was not a fake insurgency like we saw in Ukraine and in Syria. However, the financing for such a project...where does that come from? All the expensive flags and signs...not to mention full time leadership of the independence movement. I did read back in the days of the Quebec independence movement that the Bloc Quebecois got some of its financing from sources in New York...that had gonnections with the large Jewish community in Montreal. So the people were whipped up and instability ensued. Their cultural egos were appealed to...so to speak. This is what I think is going on in Catalan. There is no doubt in my mind that the Catalonians are genuinely wanting to form their own country. I saw such evidence with my own eyes during a visit to Barcelona in 2015.

However, a BIG question to ask is why such a low turn out for the Referendum vote which voted over 90% in favour of independence??????? Only 43% of the population voted. How come all the analysts avoid that huge Elephant in the living room?

I am opposed to independence because Catalan already has a lot of autonomy and the fall-out from the coming struggle is not worth the effort or the gain. I smell an instability project by the usual suspects for the usual reasons. Next thing we know...and this is a prediction....there will be "terror bombings"...of very specific cultural icons in Barcelona. THIS, IMO, IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!
