The collapse of #Europe: the ideas of #separatism prevail

Good afternoon, dear readers! In the Old World, the ideas of seperatism are increasing day by day. For most people, Europe is associated with integrity and well-being. However, that is not quite true. After all, thousands of residents of this most “prosperous” Europe are willing to re-examine the borders of their states, or at least get more autonomy.
A striking example is Catalonia, which fights so fiercely for its independence. I believe that Catalan separatism is not just a struggle for national independence, but the struggle for the possibility of direct subordination of Catalonia to the bureaucrats of Brussels without mediators of Madrid, they want “more Europe and less Madrid.” Most likely, it can even be called a separation from the European Commission. It’s no coincidence that the main advocate of strengthening the European Commission’s influence and dismantling European nation states, George Soros, finances two Catalan organizations that play a key role in the struggle for Catalan pseudo-independence. And I’ve already written about this in my article. I think the Catalan example was contagious for territories like Italy and France not for a reason.
Just recently, on October 22, the referendums in Italy, in Veneto and Lombardy, were held. Although it was not a question of complete separation of the regions, only the vote for getting more autonomy. In turn, 95% of the interviewed supported the idea of ​​autonomy. I think that this famous American oligarch was also involved here. In addition, France is likely be the next in his list.
So, a few days ago it became known that New Caledonia (France), intended to hold a referendum on secession and gaining sovereignty in 2018. I want to note that the separation can seriously hit the archipelago, since the association with France, one of the central European countries, is access to high technologies and the most advanced developments in the field of economics. Moreover, the archipelago produces nickel, and still there are deposits of manganese, cobalt, chromium and other ores.
That’s right, Americans are quietly shaking Europe, causing another burst of separatism. And the European Union, meanwhile, stayed away from these events. Apparently, the EU doesn’t defend longer basic political and human rights.
Apparently, the restraint of the European Union and its members is due to the fact that frozen problems with individual regions exist in many countries. In the same Belgium, the richer region of Flanders declared many times the desire to get more autonomy, and its radical political wing – even complete independence. I think, in view of the ongoing government crises, to start the process of “divorce” in Belgium, it will be enough to help the former Catalan leader, Carles Puigdemont, who fled there in late October, at the end of the separation process, as they immediately begin to pursue their policy on independence.
There are many questions in this field even in Poland – where the residents of Silesia want to get more autonomy. While they are only asking for national recognition and some autonomy, it is not known how they will behave if they are not be heard …
I think that the problem of separatism in the world is largely “fueled” by the double standards of the countries of the West (where some are fighting for independence and others are trying to prevent it), as well as contradictions that are hiding in the basic documents of the UN. In order to stop fierce political battles throughout the world, I believe it is time for members of the United Nations to begin negotiating what is meant by the “right to self-determination” and “territorial integrity” and how to reconcile each other these two conflicting principles. The formulating rules of the game in this matter will make the whole world calmer. Otherwise, these American billionaires will take advantage of this “parade of sovereignties” and adjust themselves to disunited European countries and newly formed regions.

#Catalonia: #Belgium – the new home of the escaped #Puigdemont?

The story with an attempt to proclaim the state sovereignty of Catalonia passed into the phase of legal proceedings. After the declaration of independence of the region was suspended, the Spanish court first decided to arrest eight ministers of the “rebellious” government of the autonomy, including Vice President Oriol Junqueras and ex-ministers Carles Mundo, Joaquim Forn, Meritxell Borras, Dolors Bassa, Raul Romeva, Jordi Turull and Josep Rull. They are accused of organizing rebellion, insurgency and waste of public funds. They face up to 30 years in prison.
After the Spanish court issued a European warrant for the arrest of politicians catalanes, on Sunday, November 5, the former head of Catalonia and 4 local government ministers appeared themselves at the police station in Brussels, accompanied by their lawyers. Let me remind you that they have been in Belgium since the end of October.
On November 6, it became known that the Belgian court released the ex-President of the Generalitat of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, and his former advisers, provided that they did not leave the country until the issue of their extradition to Madrid was resolved, that is, until November 17, when a court decision on the execution of the European warrant for arrest issued by Spain will be rendered.
It can be assumed that Belgium has already become a new home for the escaped Puigdemont and his associates from Catalonia. Puigdemont did not just choose this country. The Belgian authorities were almost the only ones in Europe with a restrained support of Catalonia’s claims for independence, and the Minister of Migration of Belgium, Theo Francken, even said that Puigdemont could well get political asylum.
That is, the escape of the ex-head of Catalonia turned out to be an escape – from obligations, from politics, from the choice of the people, from their political status. He does not control his destiny today, it is made by external players. And I believe that for a politician – this is a defeat. He lost the fate of Catalonia itself. I believe that he had to stay in Spain, no matter what the consequences. Political leadership is, first of all, a character and a personal example.
Whatever the outcome of the early parliamentary elections, the initiative for the Catalans is missed strategically, and the will to obtain national sovereignty is substantially broken by the betrayal of leaders.

The Constitutional Court of #Spain suspended the #resolution on the #independence of #Catalonia

Good evening, dear readers! So the events in Spain continue to worry me. So, today, October 31, the Сourt granted the petition of the Spanish authorities against the resolution of the Catalan Chamber of Parliament on the proclamation of independence.
Let me remind you that on October 27, the Catalan parliament voted to adopt a resolution proposed by supporters of the independence of the autonomous community from Spain. And later, Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, announced the removal of the head of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, and the dissolution of the local government and parliament.
As explained by Oriol Junqueras, K.Puchedemon’s deputy, in his address the former head of Catalonia will tell about the “work” he is performing while he is in Brussels. Although the only reason for his visit to Belgium is currently being actively discussed with a view to obtaining asylum from possible criminal prosecution by the Spanish authorities. According to El Periodico, five former members of the deported Catalan government arrived together with Puigdemont in Brussels.
In addition, lawsuits for rebellion, rebellion and embezzlement have been filed against members of the remote government of the region and a number of local parliamentarians. Maybe they’re the reason they ran …
Nevertheless, we will only hope for the best that justice will triumph and Catalonia will eventually surrender. In the meantime, it is already noted that virtually the whole of the Catalan administration submitted orders to Madrid.

#Berlusconi would act differently on the #independence of #Catalonia

Good evening everyone! The leader of “Forza Italia”, the former head of the Italian government, Silvio Berlusconi, does not agree with the position of the country’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. The solution to the situation, according to Berlusconi, is the support of a “legally controlled” referendum that would help resolve this situation.
He said it after the meeting of the European People’s Party (ERP) in Brussels.
According to Berlusconi, he would not send the officers of the Civil Guard to Catalonia to prevent the voting of its residents.
The social organization Human Rights Watch, together with the experts, concluded that the members of the Civil Guard were subjected to unfair force against the referendum participants, which took place on October 1. It’s easier to say that Madrid’s actions “were excessive.”
The Italian politician also noted that the solution to the crisis will be a “dialogue” and a vote based on legal grounds. Even people who do not want changes in the administrative-territorial system will have the right to vote.
The autonomy of Catalonia is planned to be suspended for a long time, applying the 155th article of the main law of the country, the measures for which are now being approved. These plans were announced after the head of the region Karles Puigdemont wrote a letter threatening to launch a declaration of independence by voting in the event that Madrid continues to interfere with the dialogue.
I’d like to remind you that today, October 27,the Senate of Spain will consider the government’s plan to transfer control of Madrid to Catalonia and the authority of the autonomy.
The Senate is expected to approve the activation of article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which gives the government the authority to “take all necessary measures to coerce” the region during the crisis. The article has never been used before.

Loss of autonomy or elections? Will the destiny of Catalonia resolved?

That is in doubt. After all, the “clever plan” of the Catalan leader put everyone at a dead end. He declared everywhere that he was ready to declare independence of the region, but on Madrid’s requests to confirm his statements and whether an act of independence was signed, Puigdemont did not react in any way. In turn, tomorrow Madrid threatens to apply Article 155 of the Constitution! In consequence, autonomy will be limited and leaders will be removed from power.
Of course, if the Catalan authorities today will not announce independence. In any case, a meeting of the regional parliament is planned, at which, as announced, within a few hours a decision will be made on further steps. Whether the independence is proclamed or not, is questioned?
Although in Barcelona, ​​there are calls for peacefully negotiate more often. As people have already understood, what can this separation cost. So, already more than 1300 companies have withdrawn their offices from the territory of Catalonia. For the budget of the region it is a hit hard, because taxes remain where the business is registered.
In addition, according to media reports, it became known that the authorities of Catalonia are planning to announce early regional elections, on December 20.
Apparently, Puigdemont wants to delay again, but for what reasons? As a result, the whole world is looking forward to the session of the parliament, which will be held at 16.00.

Who is Anna Maruny, who asks for the help of Catalonia?

Good evening, my dear readers! As promised, I tried to find out who the girl from the Catalan video “Help Catalonia.Save Europe!” is and as I assumed, she has to do with the United States. Let me remind you that a video message appeared recently in the network, filmed in Catalonia during clashes between opponents and supporters of the independence of the region. There a young girl from Catalonia talks in English about her view of the crisis in the autonomy. She states that “we, like European citizens, believe in values ​​such as democracy, freedom and human rights” and calls on Europe “to help Catalonia, to release it, before it’s too late.” This video reminds an Ukrainian video shot filmed during EuroMaidan in 2014, where activist Yulia Marushevska tells also in English, in the background of barricades and burning tires that the protesters “want to be free of dictatorship.” (Here you can read in detail my article, which compares these 2 videos) In that publication, I found out that the face of the Ukrainian video, Yulia Marushevska, has close ties with the United States. And now I’ll tell you about the second girl.
So who is the girl of the Catalan video, which excited recently the whole public?
This 26-year-old actress Anna Maruny Castillón, who was born in Girona, February 3, 1991, and grew up in a small area of ​​Spain – Bash-Emporda. She studied at such theatrical schools as el Institut del Teatre, la Escuela Superior de Arte Dramatico Etria y Escuela de Artes Escénicas Coco Comín de Barcelona. But then she realized that she “spent more time in the theatre school Eòlia than in the university”. It is curious that Anna studied for a long time in the USA, in New York (the Stella Adler Actors Studio, the theatre company Saratoga International Theater Institute (SITI Company)). Apparently, in the United States during this time, she was taught everything “good”. Moreover, she even became a star there, since she starred in comedy horror “Zombie Pizza!” in 2014, which tells the story of a teenager who, after losing her father, decides to continue the family business-to carry pizza on a bicycle during the horror film “Apocalypse zombie”. The actress played the part of Adriana.
According to the Spanish media, Anna is also a member of the Association of Professional Actors and Directors of the autonomous community.
Anna Maruny speaks Spanish, Catalan, English and French very well. And as we see in the video, she is fluent in English, calling for the rescue of Catalonia, and thus Europe. And here again the traces of Soros, the American businessman, and his fund “Open Society Initiative for Europe” are clearly visible. Apparently, he also sponsored Òmnium Cultural, the director of this video message. Please note that it has already been repeatedly noted that this fund has financed public organizations that are in favor of Catalonia’s independence. Apparently, this case is also his handiwork.
This rascal actor of international politics and international relations, George Soros, leads us according to his planned scenario. Who will be next? until it’s unknown …
Sincerely, María García López.
