VilaWeb: Eric’s story: an American resident faces deportation over a Catalan pro-independence flag

«On the day of the general strike in Catalonia, Eric was arrested by Spanish police when he demanded to have his pro-independence “estelada” flag returned to him after the officers found it in his pocket and seized it. For this reason he stands accused of terrorism, jihadism and human trafficking, and is also facing deportation. In addition, they are pressing criminal charges against him and he will be prosecuted for public disorder. The police claim he was in possession of two large metal nuts which he was carrying wrapped up in his flag. Eric categorically denies it. He and his wife believe it is an attempt to intimidate foreign residents, to scare them and discourage them from supporting Catalonia’s independence cause.»

We, the independence supporters, will not disappear even if we are jailed and repressed. We will continue demanding a negotiation as a means to find a political solution to the conflict. If Spain does not want to sit on the other side of the table, the international community will have to force them to do it or, worst case scenario, take their place. We will never leave the dialogue, but Spain’s chair can’t stay empty forever.
— Oriol Junqueras, a former vice president of the government of Catalonia - Spain has no interest in a political solution for Catalonia (The Washington Post, Oct. 15 2019)

Madrid is making martyrs out of Catalan independence leaders & Spain may not survive the backlash – Salmond — RT World News

«When elected politicians use unelected judges to sentence other elected politicians to 100 years between the nine of them, then things have reached a point which cannot be sustained, and the Spanish state I don’t think will survive this outrage.»

@CataloniaHelp2: Cardona’s castle, this was the last position of the Catalan army; it was occupied by the Spanish army in September 1714.

  • @IVKaBCN: Spain IS a flawed democracy. What it risks is everyone knowing it!

  • @erikwill: I would never use the term "democracy" to describe Spain after 2017. Spain is an authoritarian police state.

  • @thespainreport: National poll in @elespanolcom: if a general election were held today: PP -20 PSOE +10 Podemos -26 Ciudadanos +38 Vox would get first seat.

  • @JulianAssange: Between corruption scandals and polarization over Catalonia, Spain's ruling party PP continues to fall in polls.

  • @lluisgerard: And yet they are the most voted party. Pro-155 parties gain votes and Podemos loses a lot. So, Spain will never accept a Catalan referendum

OHCHR | UN independent expert urges Spanish Government to reverse decision on Catalan autonomy

“The Spanish Government appears to invoke the principle of territorial integrity to justify forceful attempts to silence political dissent and aspirations of self-determination. While the principle of territorial integrity is important, as understood in many United Nations Resolutions, including GA Resolutions 2625 and 3314, it is intended to be applied externally, to prohibit foreign threats or incursions into the territorial integrity of sovereign States. This principle cannot be invoked to quench the right of all people, guaranteed under Article 1 of the International Covenants on Human Rights, to express their desire to control their futures. The right of self-determination is a right of peoples and not a prerogative of States to grant or deny. In case of a conflict between the principle of territorial integrity and the human right to self-determination, it is the latter that prevails.”

“Of course, there are many peoples worldwide who aspire to self-determination, whether internal in the form of autonomy or external in the form of independence. And while the realization of self-determination is not automatic or self-executing, it is a fundamental human right that the international community should help implement.”

“The international law of self-determination has also progressed far beyond mere decolonization. Applying the 15 criteria contained in my 2014 report (paras 63-77), it is evident that no state can use the principle of territorial integrity to deny the right of self-determination and that arguments about the legality of actions taken by Catalonia’s elected parliament are immaterial. Such arguments do not nullify the ius cogens character of self-determination.”
