#American secrets of the #separatists

The recent parade of sovereignty in #Catalonia have failed, as a result of which the former president of the Catalan Generalitat, Carles Puigdemont, is running away from Spanish justice in Belgium. It can be said that the failure of the separatists testifies that the new president of the United States, Donald Trump, kept his main promise, refusing from the violent export of democracy in favor of respect for state sovereignty.
After the arrival of Donald Trump in the White House, all these separatist movements were gradually fading away, despite the active support of the main sponsor from the wing of public globalists, George Soros. For the first time, Washington used the “right of people to self-determination” in their geopolitical interests as early as the beginning of the 20th century, supporting in 1903 the “nation of Panama” in Colombia to privatize the future Panama Canal. Having seized the initiative from French investors, the Americans subsequently eliminated the president of Panama, Omar Torrijos, and the Chief of Staff of the national Defense Forces, general Manuel Noriega, who sought the sovereignty of the Canal. The first of them died in 1977 in a plane crash, and the second was overthrown in 1989 during the invasion of American troops in Panama. Thus, support for separatism in the zone of American interests has a long tradition and was actively used by Washington until recently.
On the example of Catalonia, you can also note that here the leader of the separatists, Carles Puigdemont, hoped clearly to repeat the experience of his predecessor, the founder of the first separatist party “Estat Catalá” Francisco Maciá. In 1928, he collaborated with the pro-American dictator of Cuba, Gerardo Machado, with the support of which he founded his “Revolutionary Separatist Party of Catalonia” in Havana. Having enlisted the support of George Soros and his comrades, Puigdemont hoped to continue the Catalan project after gaining independence, annexing Andorra, the southeast of France and part of Sardinia. However, deprived of US support, is now forced to seek salvation in political emigration. Thus, all the “separatist projects” were blocked without the support of the United States, along with them, the aggressive projects on the withdrawal of territories in various parts of the world were also brought to nothing. Preservation of the territorial integrity of Spain shows that Trump managed to stop the destructive operations of his predecessors at the moment.
Perhaps this explains in many respects why the figure of the new American president was under sustained attack of “misunderstanding of foreign policy,” and the former head of the Generalitat had to seek political asylum in Belgium, not having completed his plan for secession of Catalonia.

#Cataluña: #Bélgica es ¿el nuevo hogar de #Puigdemont escapado ?

La historia con un intento de proclamar la soberanía del estado de Cataluña pasó a la fase de procedimientos judiciales. Tras la suspensión de la declaración de independencia de la región, el tribunal español decidió primeramente en detener a 8 ministros de “rebelde” autonomía de los gobiernos, incluido el vicepresidente Oriol Junqueras y ex ministros Carles Mundo, Joaquim Forn, Meritxell Borras, Dolors Bassa, Raul Romeva, Jordi Turull and Josep Rull. Se los acusa de organizar un levantamiento, insurgencia y malversación de fondos públicos. Pueden ser condenados a una pena de hasta 30 años de prisión.
Después de la Corte española emitió una orden de detención europea a los políticos catalanes, el domingo 5 de noviembre, el ex jefe de Cataluña, y 4 ministros de administración local aparecieron en una estación de policía en Bruselas, acompañados por sus abogados. Permítanme recordarles que han estado en Bélgica desde finales de octubre.
El 6 de noviembre el Tribunal belga ha liberado al ex presidente de la Generalitat de Cataluña y sus ex colaboradores en condición de abandonar el país durante el tiempo que no se ha resuelto la cuestión de su extradición a Madrid, es decir, hasta el 17 de noviembre , cuando se dicte una decisión judicial sobre la ejecución de la orden europea de arresto emitida por España.
Se puede suponer que Bélgica ya se ha convertido en un nuevo hogar para los escapados Puigdemont y sus asociados de Cataluña. Puigdemont no solo eligió este país. Las autoridades belgas casi único en Europa discretamente apoyaron las demandas de la independencia de Cataluña, y el Ministro de Migración de Bélgica Teo Francken llegó a decir que Puigdemont puede también conseguir asilo político.
Es decir, la huida del ex jefe de Cataluña, lo convirtió en huida – de las obligaciones de la política, la elección de las personas, de su condición política. Él no controla su destino hoy, sino los jugadores externos lo hacen. Y creo que para un político, esta es una derrota. Perdió el destino de la propia Cataluña. Creo que tuvo que quedarse en España, sin importar las consecuencias. El liderazgo político es, antes que nada, un personaje y un ejemplo personal.
Cualquiera que sean los resultados de las elecciones parlamentarias anticipadas, una iniciativa estratégica para los catalanes está perdida, y la voluntad de obtener la soberanía nacional está rota por la traición de los líderes.

#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.
