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.

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.

Spain, Italy – who is next in this “parade of sovereignties”?

Passions over the recent plebiscite about the independence of Catalonia are running high, and the destiny of this autonomous community is still unknown. On Saturday, October 21, at an emergency meeting of the Spanish government, it was decided to apply 155 article of the Spanish Constitution, which allows to abolish the autonomous status of Catalonia. This decision must be finally approved by the Senate (Upper House) of the Spanish Parliament, whose meeting is scheduled for October 27. In turn, the Parliament of Catalonia can declare already independence of the region on October 26. What’s Puigdemont waiting for?! Maybe, when Madrid itself recognizes Catalan independence? I think, nevertheless, he is simply following a planned scenario, written by George Soros, an American billionaire.
I will assume that in Catalonia we are witnessing one of the stages of the transformation of the European Union into the so-called “Union of Regions”, in which the nation-states will be completely fragmented, and the center will be only one and will be located exactly in Brussels. Indeed, the Catalan separatists insist on the “European”, not on the national identity. Here we see the typical mechanism of the “color revolution” of Soros, especially as he was already caught in the process of financing Catalan nationalists.
Catalan separatism is not a struggle for national independence, but a struggle for the possibility of direct subordination of Catalonia to Brussels bureaucrats without mediators from Madrid. They want “more Europe and less Madrid,” that is, it’s not even a struggle for independence, but rather a separation of the region in favor of the European Commission. It is not by chance that the main supporter of increasing the influence of the European Commission and the dismantling of European nation states, George Soros, financed two Catalan organizations that played a key role in the struggle for Catalan pseudo-dependence. As “La Vanguardia” reported in 2016, Soros financed the Council of Public Diplomacy of Catalonia (Consell per la Diplomàcia Pública de Catalunya), an organization that actually serves as the Catalan “Ministry of Foreign Affairs” and is a tool for lobbying Catalan interests at the EU level, and also supported financially CIDOB (non-commercial organization), which plays the important role of a “brain”, working for Catalan politicians and separatists.
It is also important that in the conflict between Barcelona and Madrid, the sympathies of the American oligarch are clearly on the side of “pro-European separatists”. Most likely, it’s not even in Catalonia itself, but in creating a scheme that can be repeated in different European countries until the European Union becomes practically a single state controlled by no one elected European bureaucrats.
Let’s remember the terrorist attacks in Barcelona that should lead to the requirements for limiting uncontrolled migration to the European Union, but the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Catalonia, Raul Romeva, stated that “the problem was not migration,” but that “some people perceived this as a problem”, and also demanded to fight xenophobia, which caused just a storm of enthusiasm in American and British media. It should be noted that the British and American media are very pleased when a Catalan politician expresses the theses from the Soros method of tolerance and that African and Middle Eastern migrants are happiness for Europe, and not a reason for concern or for the closure of borders. Tolerance of Catalan politicians has reached a level that recent migrants support the independence of Catalonia. Another sign of truly “Soros” tolerance is that Barcelona is now one of the “centers of jihadist terrorism in Spain,” as the Canadian newspaper “Globe and Mail” said.
What is next?! Most likely, there will be the implementation in practice of a typical “Gandhi-style” strategy that involves careful design of the victim’s image and at the same time creates conditions under which any violence or punishment of political activists turns into serious image losses for the authorities. If President Puigdemont announced immediately independence “here and now,” he would be immediately arrested, and in the eyes of the public and the international community this would look quite an adequate response. Now it turns out that there is independence, but it does not seem to exist, and any violence or punitive operations by the Spanish authorities will look like an act of unmotivated cruelty. So, step by step, the Catalan separatists will “press” Madrid to achieve the goal – the intervention of the European Commission as a mediator, and from there to the actual collapse of Spain and the launch of a chain reaction in other European countries.
So, while Catalonia is recovering from the actions of American oligarchs, yesterday, October 22, in Italy, Veneto and Lombardy held referendums. Although we are not talking about the complete separation of regions, they did it only to achieve greater autonomy. More precisely, Lombardy and Veneto want to save a large share of financial resources, reducing the so-called “residual tax”, that is, the gap between the taxes paid by the region and the state funds received for regional development. But this may already be another signal of intervention by the same American oligarch, George Soros. I wonder who will be next in his list?

Catalan separatists have copied the Ukrainian video of the times of Euromaidan

Good morning! The confrontation between Catalonia and Madrid because of the independence referendum motivated some Catalans to seek help and support in Europe. So, they created a propaganda video, which is very similar to the video message shot in Ukraine during the times of Euromaidan in 2014. In the video, which is called “I am Ukrainian”, activist Yulia Marushevska tires to tell us in English with tears in her eyes on the background of barricades and tyre fires that the protesters “want to be free of dictatorship”. Moreover, she urges Yanukovych not to “kill”, preaches “freedom and democracy.” In this video there are clashes between the police and civilians.
It is curious only that the video was filmed by the English photographer Graham Mitchell, and published by the American documentaryist Ben Moses. It is also interesting that Yulia Marushevska was a participant of the summer program of Harvard University, and from January to March 2015 she studied the state structure, political development, fighting corruption in the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law of Stanford University. Apparently, in the universities of the American metropolis – Harvard and Stanford – she was taught something “good”, and then in the colonial tradition was returned back to her homeland. All this confirms once again the intervention of Americans. And after all, I have repeatedly written in my publications about the participation of so-called “stakeholders” in shaking Europe, maybe they are doing it again?!
As a result, I can assume that the face of the Ukrainian video, Yulia Marushevska, has close ties with the United States. The American radio station “Voice of America” noted that this “emotional appeal” motivated thousands of Ukrainians to go outside. And given that the United States was the main sponsor of the Maidan and the Catalan video was shot in a similar style, I can assume that the USA was involved here, as confirmed by my previous publications.
And I don’t want this same American radio station to write the same thing about the Catalans, who are in favor of secession from Spain. And anyway, the girl in the Catalan video maybe be relevant to the US?! Obviously, the video “Help Catalonia: Save Europe” reminds Julia’s video. So, a young girl from Catalonia talks in English about her view of the crisis in the autonomy. She claims that the Spanish government “refuses any dialogue”, and the police use excessive force. “We are European citizens like you, and we need your help”, the girl said, urging us to share this information with friends and family. In addition, 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”. The video is accompanied by footage from the demonstrations in Catalonia and the actions of the police.
Obviously, the events that take place today has a “director”, who leads them to the unknown end. And in my next publications I’ll try to find out who can be and can a girl in the Catalan clip be related to the US.

The video –

Sincerely, María García López.

The European Union as the cause of separatism

Good afternoon! I will continue to write about Catalonia, because the events that are taking place there worry the whole world. And I want to share my ideas with you about a possible reason of the current situation.
Recently, the countries of Europe with a complex ethnic administrative system begin one after another not only to fall like a house of cards, but to have very serious additional burdens and difficulties. Now we see it on the example of Spain. I will assume you that the fact of the existence of the European Union and the long-term prospects of joining it as a separate state can provoke separatist sentiments in Catalonia, and not only there. I’ll try to explain why.
Big states provide certain regions, like Catalonia, with certain bonuses in the economic, financial and political spheres that would be prohibitive for these regions as for individual countries.
However, the growing influence of supranational organizations (for example, the EU) and multilateral treaties leads to the fact that many of these bonuses can be obtained as a separate small country. It is enough to enter a supranational entity or sign a multilateral treaty. This temptation can affect the alignment of regional forces. Ultimately, this is likely to lead to an increase in decentralization. But their ignoring of centrifugal tendencies threatens only the growth of tension, which can lead to open conflicts and the disintegration of states.
I would also like to remind you that the reason for demanding the independence of Catalonia was the financial crisis in Spain, in fact, the refusal of the central government to give Barcelona 5 billion euros for social programs. And the main idea of ​​Catalan separatism, of course, lies deeper than the supposed “cultural oppression” of Madrid – it is the reluctance of the rich province to share money with the poorer part of Spain. Catalonia remains annually in a minus from such transfers for the sum of 16 billion euro. Thus, the debt crisis only strengthens the position of separatist movements in Europe.
So it turns out that the existence of the EU provokes the regions for separatism. Why live in Spain if you can leave it, but stay in the EU, with its market, rules, but with your own taxes, etc?! In light of this, it can be assumed that regional separatism will only increase as the European Union consolidates and centralizes.
