which was crushed.”

How Catalonia Pulled Off Its Independence Vote from Spain Using “Pizza” Code Words and Secret Schemes

 

 " I arrived at the polling station on the night before Catalonia was set
to vote in a contested referendum on the region’s independence from
Spain. A Spanish court had declared the referendum illegal, and Madrid
had sent thousands of riot police to Catalonia to shut down the vote. By
midnight, workers at the polling station closed the building’s
corrugated metal gate and sealed us in until morning, or until the
police arrived. Inside, we waited for whichever came first. "

 A group of boys rest inside a would-be polling station at a school in Barcelona, on October 1, 2017, to prevent the police to seal it off in a referendum on independence for Catalonia banned by Madrid.Madrid has vowed to stop the referendum from going ahead, closing polling stations, seizing millions of ballot papers, detaining key organisers and shutting down websites promoting the vote. / AFP PHOTO / JOSE JORDAN (Photo credit should read JOSE JORDAN/AFP/Getty Images)

Suspending the Catalan Parliament, Spain Destroys the EU's "Rule of Law" Figleaf. - Craig Murray

 

CATALONIA

#catalunyareferendum

Jonathan Cook,journalist

Former British ambassador Craig Murray has been writing a string of
posts on his blog about what is happening in Spain that makes for
disturbing reading.

He has been especially shocked at the
response of the EU Commission. He believes that, in publicly giving its
full backing to Spain's prime minister, Mariano Rajoy, the Commission
has effectively set the stage for more violence from the Spanish
government against the Catalan people and their representatives.


Certainly, it cannot be a good sign that Spain's highly politicised
Constitutional Court has shut down the Catalan parliament, overriding
the democratic will of the Catalan people.

Murray, as someone
who spent many years in the senior diplomatic service, has a much better
idea than most of us how to read the significance of what can sound to
an outside observer like bland formulations of protocol.

Murray:


It takes a very special kind of chutzpah systematically to assault
voters, and drag them from polling booths by their hair, and then say
that a low turnout invalidates the vote. That is the shameless position
being taken by the Europe-wide political Establishment and its corporate
media lackeys. ...

The rule of law is not everything. Apartheid
was legally enforced in South Africa. ... British colonialism was
enforced by laws. Nor is the administration of the law always impartial.
Apartheid had its judges. Pinochet had judges to enact his version of
the “rule of law”.

Actually all dictators are very big on “the rule of law”.


The most sinister thing [EU Commissioner Frans] Timmermans said to the
European Parliament was: “There can be no human rights without the rule
of law”. Sinister because he did not balance it with “There can be no
rule of law without human rights”.

What Spain is attempting now
to impose on Catalonia is rule of law without democracy. I am going to
be most interested to see how Brussels manages to justify that. We are
seeing a whipping up of hatred by a central government against a
national and linguistic minority and a suppression of its freedoms and
institutions.

CLINTON, ASSANGE AND THE WAR ON TRUTH

 

John Pilger describes the obsequious media "feminist" support for
Hillary Clinton's score-settling book on her failed attempt to win the
US presidency, especially its defamation of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, whose disclosures of her warmongering and corruption deliver journalism.


On 16 October, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation aired an
interview with Hillary Clinton: one of many to promote her
score-settling book about why she was not elected President of the
United States.

Wading through the Clinton book, What Happened, is
an unpleasant experience, like a stomach upset. Smears and tears.
Threats and enemies. “They” (voters) were brainwashed and herded against
her by the odious Donald Trump in cahoots with sinister Slavs sent from
the great darkness known as Russia, assisted by an Australian
“nihilist”, Julian Assange.

In The New York Times, there was a
striking photograph of a female reporter consoling Clinton, having just
interviewed her. The lost leader was, above all, “absolutely a
feminist”. The thousands of women’s lives this “feminist” destroyed
while in government - Libya, Syria, Honduras - were of no interest...

 Coal has been the main source of this new supply, generating 45% of the
electricity used by people gaining access for the first time between
2000 and 2016. There has also been a
growing role for renewable sources of electricity, with particularly
rapid growth in decentralised off-grid access. From 2000-2012,
renewables provided 28% of new access to electricity. This figure rose
to 34% during 2012-2016. Around the world, the share of new electricity
access supplied by renewables is expected to rise to 60%.

write this text, the president of Catalonia has suspended a declaration

opportunity to start a dialogue. So far, this proposal has been

#catalunyareferendum

Europe can no longer look elsewhere!

Carme Forcadell

We are Catalans, we are Europeans, we are European. Catalonia has
always felt itself identified with the values of peace, freedom and
justice that impregnated European construction in its origins. But
today, an important part of Catalan society is wondering when the
European institutions will continue to obviate the flagrant violation of
fundamental rights that is taking place in one of the member states of
the European Union.

The police violence against Catalan citizens
on October 1 is the peak of the repressive spiral of Spain to try to
stop, without success, the exercise of the right to self-determination
in Catalonia. People of all ages and ideologies, who only wanted to vote
and decide the political future of their country, were victims of
unjustifiable violence by the police.

It was, until then, the
culmination of an escalation that includes complaints against the
Catalan Government and the intervention of its finances, complaints
against the majority of the Parliament's table, threats against more
than 700 mayors, suspension of acts on the referendum , the closure of
more than 140 web pages, and the arrest of senior officials and
employees of the Catalan Government.

But in spite of everything,
on October 1, more than 2.2 million people voted, 90% of whom voted in
favor of independence. Although polls were requisitioned, despite
threats and violence, citizens issued a democratic mandate that the
Catalan government's president, Carles Puigdemont, assumed. But it
suspended its effects temporarily to prioritize the dialogue, the hand
Extended and international mediation.

The Spanish president,
Mariano Rajoy, has a historic disjunctive: continue with judicialization
and repression, or choose the way of dialogue. Continue with
complaints, interrogations and arrests, or decide once and for all to
face politically what is a political conflict.

Regrettably, the
answer remains to ignore the policy. The Spanish government has
initiated the procedures to suspend, even more, self-government in
Catalonia and acquire its competencies.

The State, in addition,
responded with a serious attack on the appeal to President Puigdemont's
dialogue. The two leaders of the socialist social organizations,
responsible for some of the most massive mobilizations in Europe, always
peaceful, have been imprisoned accused of sedition. Innocent people can
spend up to 4 years in jail without trial, accused of a crime they have
not committed, by a court that does not even have the powers to do so.


Yes, in the European Union there are political prisoners. Yes, there
are political prisoners in Spain. There are demons jailed for their
ideas. In view of this fact, the response of the European institutions
can not be said to be a simple internal affair.

Because the
future of Europe also happens, inevitably, for Catalonia. The
credibility of the European project as an area of freedom and democracy
is at stake with the response to the democratic democratic process and
the repressive spiral of the Spanish State. Europe can not look any
further towards the other side. They violate the fundamental rights
contained in the Treaty on European Union, and it is the obligation of
the European institutions to guarantee these rights. What is the level
of repression you are willing to tolerate? Until when?

I do not
