Vote for Catalonia Independence on October 1st 2017.
For the past two weeks, Spanish police directed by the central Madrid government have harassed Catalonian government officials to prevent them from initiating the legitimate October 1, 2017 Catalonia Independence referendum. [Stratfor, Sept. 20, 2017]. These peremptory orders came from the effete, corrupt Spanish PM Marion Rajoy [People’s Party]. Rajoy commanded that the highly compromised federal police “enter Catalonian print shops, seize thousands of pro-referendum posters, pamphlets, and voting ballots” [Stratfor, 9-17].
This fascist type of leadership is reminiscent of the days when Francisco Franco suppressed and then killed millions of innocent Spaniards in order to maintain an ersatz republic. He grinded-out this horrific task to solidify his power from 1939-1975.
Many of my adolescent days living in Toulouse, France were spent in and around Barcelona. Very early on, I realized that the Catalonians were more like the Basque than the inhabitants of Madrid. The Catalonians and the Basque were incredibly industrious, courteous people who spoke and lived a very different lifestyle from the rest of Spain.
Years later, as I tracked Catalonia’s progress, I reported that it provided close to 40% of the real GDP of Spain. That did not surprise me. These were the same type of hard working people who had populated much of the industrious French Pyrenees-Orientales. In fact, Barcelona is the seventh most populated urban area in the EU and the second largest city in Spain after Madrid.[Wikipedia]. Since the 1978 new Spanish Constitution, Catalan has been the most visited, economically dynamic region of Spain.
On Sept.19, 2017, Rajoy ordered the seizure of 45,000 envelopes with the Catalan government logo emblazoned on the letterhead of the city of Terrassa. He also ordered mayors from three different Catalan municipalities who supported Catalan independence to report to the police prefecture for interrogation. In a Sept. 20th speech, Catalan President Carles Puigdemont decried the central Spanish government as “authoritarian and undemocratic”.
With a youth unemployment rate of close to 40%, Madrid can no longer affirm its legitimacy as a functioning central government. For over 1½ years, there was no senate or prime minister in Madrid. Effectively, there was no central Spanish government while the rest of the country kept functioning quite well without subsidizing a group of federal political sycophants.
All the fake trapping of governance was bleached out of the Prime Minister’s office when he and his political cohorts were appropriately accused of “financial corruption and economic cronyism”. The Spanish King, Felipe VI and his lovely wife have their ancestral roots in the Visigothic Kingdom founded in Spain and Aquitania during the fifth century. Yet today, they are merely figureheads with no power or importance.[Wikipedia].
In one of my first Tom Clancy’s Op Center books, I had predicted that if the October 1 referendum is abrogated, there will be blood on the streets of the major Catalan cities including: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, Tarragona, Figueres, Reus, Terrassa, Mataro, Tossa de Mar, Manresa, Tortosa, Sabadall, Badalona, Cadaques,Santa de LLobregat, Olot, L’Hospitalet de Lloberegat, Selva, Vic, Sitges, Besalu, Salou, Ripoli, El Prat de Llobregat, Palamos, Vilanova, la Geitru, et. al.
Presently close to 1,000 Catalan municipalities will offer their public buildings as polling stations. Dear friends and neighbors of Catalan: vote for independence from Spain just as England has done. Become the second greatest nation to separate from the FAKE EU.
Before there was any notion of Spain artificially created by the French nobilities and the 1492 Spanish Inquisition, Catalan was a thriving country destined to endure into age of the 21st century internet. Please don’t forget to put up your signs for Catalan Independence reading as follows:
“We are ready!”
And then vote: “Si”
Vaya con Dios!
