They probably should and they probably will, I can't see any other way to end it all. BUT I'm talking about basic rights, about a peaceful cohabitation, respecting the ideas of your neighbour. That's what's been seriously damaged these last days in there, families thinking about leaving their own place because it doesn't feel like home no more.

spain don't seem keen.

too much money at stake to risk a vote.

spain will end up like greece without the catalan economy.

proper eu basket case. ???

An equitable solution needs to be reached, but what Catalonia's government did was illegal. They had a referendum, but it was not binding, as Spain's constitution does not allow for any region to secede. Personally, I see the fingerprints of the Russians all of this, if you analyze the search terms on social media during this time RT, Wikileaks, Edward Snowden, and Julan Assange trended for days.

Coupled with that, historical Catalonian grievances were mainly economic. Madrid has caught up to Barcelona in terms of the economy, and the rest of Spain has become far wealthier compared to the 1970's when this argument may have held some merit.

More or less right. I just should highlight that Assange's comments have been surreal and a total joke, he became a meme and provided some of the funniest moments to come out of this.

If he decides to come back from Belgium, aye.

His party has already announced they will participate on the regional elections in December. They simply didn't have a plan B, they expected a war or something.

One scary thing is they have thounsands of children being grown with the big BIG lie that the Spanish civil war was between Spain and Catalonia. There were people from both parts on every region, and in fact after it Franco had always a good number of catalans on important charges. But they try to sell it like Spain = Franco, Catalonia = lovely rebels, which is a big bullshit. And it's just another example of it all.

Hopefully someday we will know where they took the money to pay all that.

Clue: public money.
