It is days since I am asking Europe to try to help Catalonia and Spain to find a solution to a conflict between both parts.
In Catalonia about 75% people want to decide the future of Catalonia inside or outside Spàin. The Catalan governemt has said that the Catalan people will have their say and if this not possible within Spanish law, then we will need international law. The answer from Spain is quite clear: those who do not obbey withing the Spanish law will have to obbey.
So we have a big conflict coming! According to Spanish lawus Catalonia is a mere part of Spain who has no right whatsoever to decide its future. On the other hand most people in Catalonia we want to decide out future!
Some weeks ago a politicians from the Spanish Popular Party said that Guardia Civil should be sent to Catalonia. Now we have another controversy as a man responsible of the police in Catalonia (called Mossos d’Esquadra) has asked the Mossos to be in the part “of Democracy” and not just “what the law says” if there is a conflict in Catalonia! This is very dangerous! We are hearing talk as if there was going to be a use of weapons in this part of the European Union!
I am quite afraid of the current events because it may happen that there is a moment that events take a path that it is beyond what we may want!
Ok! If Europe does not want to solve the conflict in a public way I can understand but I just hope that at least in a secret way Europe is trying to solve the conflict between Spain and Catalonia!
Catalonia is one of the wealthiest parts of Spain. If most of us want to vote whether to remain in Spain or not and Spain does not allow us to do that and they even put in prision our president (they are threatening with this!) it is obvious that Spain is not going to work properly!
Economically we are now in the hands of Europe with the bailout! I am not asking that Europe now supports Catalonian independence or the unity of Spain. I am just asking Europe to try to bring both parts to a mininum agreement in something!
