1) Catalan-Spanish History
First Spanish Flag 1785 Catalan 1050
First Spanish Parliament 1785, Catalan 1192
First Spanish President 1823, Catalan 1359
First Spanish Constitution 1812, Catalan 1283
2) Spain is a pipe dream, there is yes, because we see it , but it is an invention, it ‘s closer than you can see is the word Hispania, which has nothing to do … with Spain and the language of Spain is Castilian not the Espanyol, Spain does not have its own language and this was solidified with Culture s and countries that do not belong , but if he has acquired wars, violence and conquest, we see as an example, America South, America Center, part of North America, the Philippines, the Canary Islands , the Balearic Islands, Galicia, the Basque Country, Catalonia, the Valencia Country, Ceuta and Melilla.
3) Continuing with Spain, the Spanish idiosyncrasy is conquering, dominant and clear Conquistador tint !!!, With a lot of command experience, because it is what it has always done, it is the ability that when you are in command and have the whole apparatus control is perfect and it does fulfill what you want.
4) For thousands of years, the command apparatus has worked perfectly, always the same, it has not moved a millimeter, the first monarchy, which is known, was 660 years BC and it was Jinmu, then the Romans, and Thus until our times, everything remains the same, First the kings, then feudalism, then various levels of government, but totally equal, as well as today, such as Socialism, Communism, capitalism, Democracy, the Kings, had the vassals, the army, the judiciary, and all forms of repression against the people, feudalism, made concessions, but with the condition not to weaken the apparatus of power, and so has continued until our times, the apparatus power of the state, they are equal, they are untouchable, governments, armies, institutions, Justice, (judges), education, in short everything, including society, which has had the weight of the Empire under it.
5) The role of Spain is complicated, because first as an old Empire, and secondly as a Dictatorship and it has never broken, with this phase of its relative short but active history, and this has been and is the problem, and their own , inhabitants strongly believe with “the Unity of the Fatherland”, “the greatness of Spain”, and that is above all !!, In Spain you can do everything, and when I say everything, it is everything !! , Acts of corruption, criminals etc … but as long as it is in the name of, or, by “The Unity of the Fatherland”, with this everything is allowed, and the king, the government, the army, the judges, and The whole apparatus, they have done it, they do it and they will do it, and that is why we have politicians in exile or in jail, not for having committed a crime, (because Independence was annulled and it was not effective) but for a few ideas , policies, would perhaps , been more controversial, if independence is had declared effective, because then yes, that would have committed a crime, but it did not, as it was annulled, such as a person of fascist trend, Franco , Falangist, or ultra-right, can do acts that are not legal, and a Republican person, Independence, or rapper, can not do it, how can the judges make such a difference, well, once again “the Unity of the Fatherland “.
6) On the other hand, deepening, with “The Unity of the Fatherland”, what is this ? While this is ” I command and you obey , ” and also you I pay to me because I’m the one who command and you do what I say !!! And for it to be “Unity of the Motherland ” , both in time of kings, feudalism, or the democracy and Etc . …
7) Spain, has some difficult problems to solve if you want to continue s i to do the Spain and are the nationalities that really are what constitute Spain, but of course , this would be another perspective, since Spain we know is a Enteleq uia, but , if you wanted, you could try, to do, as one with a federation, without headquarters in Madrid, where each Country and culture were the same, and that each culture is governed independently, independent culture, independent language, but I do not want to enter Now here, I will do it another time, but it is clear that the departure from Catalonia would be a severe blow to the economy of Spain, and they know that, and they also know that Spain cannot survive without Catalonia, and especially now .
8) Another impact that makes Spaniards suffer a lot is an exit from Catalonia, it would give strength to the Canary Islands, the Balearic Islands, the Basque Country, Valencia, Galicia, Ceuta and Melilla, to do the same, what would Spain do without all of them? Nothing? And this is what makes them unable to sleep at night, but this happens because it has been a great and powerful Empire, all the empires have been losing their colonies and have reached the beginning where they were, the USA and the Queen Kingdom, they are already in a crisis that gets worse and will get worse with the passage of time, it is a matter of time
9 ) In relation to the Catalan-Spanish political situation now, we Catalan citizens make our lives very complicated, unfortunately we continue as always, that is why we have been where we are for more than 300 years, we are ready, to speak, lament, and also to do nothing .
10 ) Catalonia, in existence since 990, has a culture, its own language, dance, traditions, customs, cuisine, but globalization, immigration, and in the years 1950-1960, which was a imm igration very strong in Catalonia , with the result that the Catalans and Catalan culture is seen reduced very strongly , sociologists say well controlled immigration may even be good, always in a limit up 12.5%, came here with 46%, and that is not good for a culture.
11) In the former Yugoslavia, something similar happened , it went to Kosovo, which were Serbs, but had a very strong immigration from Albania, which was fatal, and which reached 96% where Serbs were 4%, this led to the Kosovo Albanians democratically declared the Independence of Kosovo, a parallel that could happen, and is really happening, and it is seen that the interests of the Catalans are different from those that do not feel Catalans, in Catalonia.
12 ) Neither Spain, nor the Spaniards will give us, their confirmation for a secession, neither for Catalonia nor for another Community, and more one like the Catalan one that supposes very favorable economic benefits , there are 99.9% of Spaniards who do not They don’t even want to hear about this issue, “the Unity of the Fatherland” again, no longer about a secession, not even a referendum, only 34% of the socialists would let us hold a referendum .
13 ) An argument not believe but gesticulate always it is that in the Holy Constitution does not allow it , and more was signed by all parties, democratic, after the Franco dictatorship including Catalan , now want out.
14 ) I would also like to say, what many have already said, the transition was a problem, it was not a transition, it was a continuation, Franco, and the Sacred Constitution was controlled by a part of the army, and the dome of power, which later it could be seen, by the other part of the army with the coup.
15) Another also of the problems of those times and still persists now, is that they wanted to make a democracy, without democrats, and this is a bit difficult in a country that says ” I do this because it comes out of my balls” , pure democracy.
16 ) All Spanish political parties are exactly the same, they are called Socialists, PP, Vox and even Podemos, and it is clear that there can be no dialogue, so that both the leaders and a very important part of Spain do not understand the problem , partly because as much as the education they have received in school, as the media, as in all Spanish society , the History of Spain has not been explained or taught to them , there is only “the unity of the Homeland”, and this “GEN” is very much within the Spanish.
17) on October 1, 2017, after the Referendum, the President of Parliament declared the Independence of Catalonia, but after a few seconds, he annulled it, that is, the declaration was not effective, this entailed, despite Everything, jail sentences and exile, for some people, even though the declaration of Independence had been declared and annulled, for something that had not been formally produced, since it had been annulled, other civil leaders, are sentenced to more than 10 years in prison, for being the leaders of a civil cultural organization, such as Òmnium cultural and ANC, where they did not commit any crime, never seen before, in Europe.
18 ) We have the politicians that we have democratically elected, and now they are, in exile or in prison, just to represent us, as is done in any democratic country , here you can present in Parliament, anyone with the political ideas you want, but nothing else … if you want to implement these ideas by a majority in Parliament, you cannot, that’s why our representatives are in exile and, or, only they are in prison, but we, the people, are not ! Those of us who have voted for them are the only ones responsible, we are not penalized !!! Of course they cannot put an entire people in prison, in the Country with the name of Spain, it is not a country, it is a scam, as I said before, it is an Entelequia, with all the rules, it is not a country, but which seized various nationalities, has its own language, because it is the Spanish , and the Spanish does not exist, and more is a dictatorial country, center, everything is run from Madrid, although they say there is autonomy, not democratic , everything is directed by “the unity of the homeland” and because of a democratic reality, such as going to vote on October 1, 2017, Spain blames only the civil and political leaders who had participated, condemned them as Sedition, But of course only, the leaders, they could not do it with those who really went to vote, they were satisfied with the punishment of beatings, they were almost 1,000 injured, and this with a Spain that calls itself a democrat, but as I have said the leaders some in exile and the others in jail, and later, sentenced, to prison n of more than 10 years, but again, the people who made the Sedition second, nothing at all, beatings, but not judicially convicted , only the leaders, punished, because as they cannot, condemn the entire Country, is a warning, a Justice who does not hold anywhere again “L to Unity of the Motherland”
19) The consequence of the conviction of Sedición, has led, first of all, to nervousness both in Spain and in Catalonia, in Spain, this nervousness is absolutely out of control, the government wants to give a pardon, because it believes that this way, the independence, it is seen that they believe, that the Catalans, did something, that was not very good, and if the Pardon is now given, we will be very grateful, and we will not do it again, the government does not want revenge, they say … The opposition is against it, they do not want a pardon, they believe (as do 63% of socialists), that pardon should not be given, and this means that, if the Catalan Parliament, which now has a majority for the Independence, wants to proclaim Independence and the Catalan Republican, cannot do it, in a democratic way.
20) Catalan nervousness also exists, on the one hand, the Catalans having a majority, Parliament, we are not united at all, time is used only with lamentations, discussions that lead nowhere, and this has been done by more than 300 years, solutions in the form of strategies to follow, none, not one, and this makes the so-called Spain even stronger, because they see that the repression works very well, and they will continue to do so, until of course, it stops working, The Pardon and the Amnesty, do not fix anything for us, no more humiliation, giving it, we would be at the same starting point as on October 1, it is only possible to restore our Country again for all.
21) On August 23, 1833 passed the Act (abolition of slavery ) , in the United States. In 1931 it was the law that gave women to vote for the first time in Spain. On July 5, 2010 the Abortion Law came into force.
22) There are many laws that come into force throughout history, but I just want to say its 3, First the law that abolished slavery of blacks in the US, Second, a law that gives equality in society to women, equality or the right to vote, and the Third, the abortion law, well before these events, which were illegal, or lack of freedom, from one day to the next they became legal to legal illustration, what I mean by this is that something that was illegal before, then after a while, may be legal, that is to say that legality or illegality is very relative, and this must be analyzed very well.
23) What is a Culture ? If we look around, we will see very clear, not to go far from home, as a culture, may be within a specific geography or language, cuisine, music, dance, dress, customs, etc. to the called Spain, there are many cultures, some that are and have already been considered as Countries, such as Catalonia, the Basque Country, Galicia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands, to name Countries, and so we will see again, that Spain does not exist, there is nothing That it is called Spain, yes it exists and a Castilian culture, which is Castile, and that speaks Castilian, but not Spanish.
24) In Catalonia there are two governments, one internal, The Generalitat de Catalunya, and the other in exile, “The Council for the Catalan Republic”. The first is highly subordinated and bound by the jurisdiction of the Spanish government and justice, and the second he is completely free to do what he sees fit without any hindrance to its execution.
25 ) What solution have the Catalans, to take back the sovereignty national ?, On the one hand, first called Spaniards have yet, the ability to command over the Catalans, because we also in the so – called period of “continuation” signed what in those days could only be signed, there was no other possibility, but now there is the Spanish Holy Constitution, on the other hand, Second, the so-called Spain, cannot do without Catalonia, not only economically speaking ! But for her “The Unity of the Fatherland” is written in Article 2. The Constitution is based on the indissoluble unity of the Spanish Nation, the common and indivisible homeland of all Spaniards, and recognizes and guarantees the right to autonomy of the nationalities and regions that comprise it and the solidarity between all of them. This Article 2 of the Constitution, a copied directly from BOE. and it is above all, on the other hand the Third, like any empire, the secession of a colony, entails the collapse of the entire empire, and on the other hand Fourth and last, the mentality of the so-called Spaniards, is that Catalonia is Spain, and you can neither dialogue nor anything at all , only obedience to the State, therefore the importance of “the Unity of the Fatherland” is in Article 2 of the Constitution.
26) Can the European Union give a solution to the problem ? The EU must support its partners, who are 28 and help them, then the EU will always support Spain, and its 27 remaining partners, in addition most of its partners are conservatives, liberals and socialists, exactly like their Spanish colleagues, here the This is wrong for the Catalans, but in the EU, there is also a court of justice, as it exists in the so-called Spain, and that is the difference, since it is not contaminated by “the Unity of the Fatherland” and that make a difference.
27) What can be done under these circumstances ? When the announcer you have to speak is completely closed, and the dialogue is difficult, this is where we Catalans have a problem, if Spain does not give permission, and non-obedience is a crime, we will always be repressed, and this is where everyone the Catalans but everyone, from the left, the middle and the right, is where we must speak and how we must do things !!!! ¿ What strategies should do, and how we get out of this bad dream that we suffer for over 300 years, we want to continue, do we want to destroy our language? , Our culture? As they very wisely have already done with many other cultures, especially Americans, and have not yet asked for forgiveness, we will passively wait for the same to happen with us, we already know how the Empire acts .
28) And what do we Catalans have to speak? Well, we can only look for strategies to get out, the dialogue with the state is already exhausted, they themselves say that neither independence nor a referendum will ever be held in Spain, then we have to do as was done with the right to abortion, or the right of women or the poor little black people, if we will not have to wait for a month for repression, or no rights, and no freedom to do what the people want, to continue, They are illegal, being in repression, domination and more humiliation, without freedom, and annihilation of our culture, with these premises we must free ourselves from the repressor, who seems to have not enough with more than 300 years and who wants to continue doing so.
29) It seems that we have a tool that we should try to exploit and it is “The Council for the Catalan Republic” we will say “C * LR”, and it is our government in exile, this means abroad outside the influence of the repressor, and this is a very good thing, the “C * LR” does not work too well now, but we have to make it work, and make it work perfect, we have almost 100,000 affiliates, but it works very slowly, the identity cards still, no We have received them, but we hope that it works well, and that everything goes well, very soon, the “C * LR” is a tool that we must prioritize, because on the one hand it gives very valuable information, which we would not have without its existence , and the other is that we have to use it as a platform, in the immediate future, by proclamation of the Republic, another thing that we should do now, would be to remove the annulment of when the Republic was proclaimed, so that the Independence of Catalonia could enter into force and the Catalan Republic a, and in this way, now yes, do it and, deserving of the crime, that they put us, when they annul the declaration of Independence, now they could at least condemn us for an activity that if we had done, this is the proclamation of Independence and the Catalan Republic would be a beginning, where citizens could follow it, it would be a new era that should be led by “C * LR”, from here it should be the tool that we Catalans would have to follow, just as I don’t know if you remember the Democratic Tsunami, which set the standard to follow, well our “C * LR” should be the same, there should be a direction that the people should follow for their liberation.
30) The “C * LR”, has to be reformed, and take a different structure from the current one, now it is very symbolic, and does a very good job, especially informative, a job that is essential and very valuable, but in addition to All this should be formed as an effective government platform, with the capacity to govern for the Catalan people, that is, a government in exile, where the Generalitat should govern, as or roughly as it does today, here within Catalonia, but the “C * LR”, only to lead politically, abroad, outside Catalonia, outside the Spanish influence, and follow, we Catalans, attentively, all the movements that we should make for our liberation, and where at all times, All Catalans, we should continue with military discipline, not with weapons and not with violence, but with obedience and discipline.
