Spain’s Political Terrorism against Catalonia 



alone do not make a democracy. This statement rings truer in Catalonia,
where political leaders are in prison for carrying out the political
agenda voters elected them to complete. That agenda includes the
separation from Spain, a country governed by a cabal of political mob
bosses, whose supposed leader, Mariano Rajoy, continues to challenge the
legality of the democratical process.
of Catalans elected a government, whose work included reforming laws
and ordinances which allowed the region to vote in favor or against
independence from Spain.
leaders were dutifully elected and legally able to present motions and
changes to existing laws and to carry out a referendum so people could
decide if they wanted to continue being part of Spain or not.
months of organizing a lawful and binding consultation, Catalan people
voted to remove themselves from Spain last October 1. Unfortunately for
Catalonia, in Spain, democracy only works when it helps existing
political power. Spain sent police thugs to indiscriminately beat up
voters and to remove ballot boxes from voting places.
and his cabinet did not like it when the wealthiest region of the
country chose to be independent, so they imposed article 155 on
Catalonia. The result was the imprisonment of Catalonian political
leaders who are captive in Spanish prisons for alleged crimes the State
has not even come close to prove.
Catalan President, Carles Puigdemont and some of his advisers left
Catalonia hoping to find support from European Democratic institutions,
but the EU leadership refused to recognize Catalonia’s legitimate right
to seek and obtain independence. Only a few individual European nations
decided to informally support Puigdemont and the Catalan struggle. One
of those countries was Belgium.
and the political cabal, who are members of the most corrupt political
party in Spain, the Popular Party (PP), demanded that new elections were
held and that a new government was formed. Catalans had no other option
but to vote again. Elections were conducted and a new parliament was
week, the Catalonian parliament elected the new President, Quim Torra,
who was elected by a narrow margin of one vote. Despite the legality of
the process and although the Catalonian leaders followed Rajoy’s
instructions, the Spanish government now refuses to lift article 155.
to Rajoy, the decision to keep control of the regional government comes
from the fact that Mr. Torra named current political prisoners as
members of his government.
Torra’s call for Rajoy to initiate talks without any preconditions, the
intervention of the State in Catalonia will continue.
Government will maintain Article 155 of the Constitution because of the
actions of the President of the Generalitat. By keeping Article 155 in
place, Mariano Rajoy denies the Catalan government the financial capital
to operate, which means the recently proclaimed government will not
have a way to carry on with the Catalan people’s business.
type of coercion and political terrorism is not new in Spain. According
to the Spanish government, the decision to keep Article 155 in place was
the response “to the provocation” of Torra that, according to La
Moncloa, seeks “confrontation with the State.” Mariano Rajoy spoke last
Saturday with the heads of the two largest political parties, Pedro
Sánchez and Albert Rivera to make them part of his decision.
list of people who Quim Torra wants in his government includes Josep
Rull, Jordi Turull and Lluís Puig, who are accused of disobedience and
embezzlement, and Toni Comín who is accused of embezzlement and
rebellion. The same charges have been made against former Catalan
President, Carles Puigdemont, who is now in Germany awaiting a decision
from a judge on whether such charges are valid or not.
For the
Government, this proposal is “a provocation”, which it will not
tolerate. If Torra maintains “the confrontation with the State,” there
will be no lifting of Article 155 of the Constitution.
list that Torra presented is not effective since it does not count with
the approval of the central government, and this time resulted in the
inclusion of two political prisoners and two advisers of former
President Puigdemont.
The statement issued the Spanish government explains that “Article 155 of the Constitution remains in force.” 
their meetings with the president, Sanchez and Rivera agreed that
Article 155 would be lifted only if there was the establishment of a
legal government in Catalonia, but that 155 will remain in place because
illegalities were committed. 
appointed Josep Rull as Territory advisor and Turull as head of the
Presidency. Both are in preventive detention for alleged crimes of
rebellion and embezzlement. On the other hand, Lluís Puig was also
appointed by the president as Culture Advisor. 
president of the Generalitat disapproved of an opportunity to
demonstrate his will to recover normality, since the decisions he made
maintain a strategy of confrontation with the State and the majority of
Catalan society,” said the central executive on Saturday in an official

next few hours, the State apparatus will provide the formal response to
Torra’s proposal, which announced the intention that the councilors will
take office in the middle of this week. 
Government of Spain, through its secretariat, which is the only
competent authority for the publication of the decisions made in
Catalonia, is now analyzing the viability of the new Government, the
personal circumstances of some of the appointees,” said the Executive in
a statement.
Friday, Torra “wanted to stage a willingness to dialogue that lasted
less than 24 hours, as his proposal for new counselors is a new
provocation because several of them were found to have escaped from
justice or in a situation of provisional detention,” says a statement
from La Moncloa.
proposal demonstrates that the will to express the dialogue in the
letter that refers to the President of the Government is not sincere,”
continues the reply. A combined action of the Constitutional Court, the
Supreme Court and the Government of the Nation will prevent these

the remote investigation of Carles Puigdemont. On Friday, the
government’s spokesman, Íñigo Méndez de Vigo, appealed “to common sense”
to ask the Catalan president not to propose people who “are in prison
or with search and capture orders” in Spain. But it is what he has done.
