Catalonia Set to Declare INDEPENDENCE – Spain to Take ‘Nuclear Option’ – Huge Blow to EU

  • Catalonia Set to Declare INDEPENDENCE – Spain to Take ‘Nuclear Option’ – Huge Blow to EU
    CATALONIA is set to declare immediate independence from Spain if Madrid fails to hold talks with separatist leaders.

    Catalonia held a controversial independence referendum earlier this month drawing the condemnation of leaders in Madrid and Brussels. After a huge Yes victory during a polling day marred by police brutality, Catalonia initially signed a letter declaring independence before immediately suspending it.

    Spain has since refused to entertain independence talks despite huge protests calling for peaceful discussion. And today Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont said the regional parliament could vote on a formal declaration of independence from Spain if the central government failed to hold talks. He has ignored a deadline to drop Catalonia’s secession bid and instead accelerated moves for an independent state.  In response Madrid said it would take extreme steps and remove the autonomy of Catalonia.

  • Hungary PM Viktor Orban BLASTS “Soros Plan” to Bring Extremists into Europe and Destroy Christianity
    by ,
    George Soros is using mass immigration to destroy Europe’s “cultural and ethnic identity”

    Hungary’s Prime Minister continues to take the fight to globalist billionaire George Soros. Viktor Orbán told an international conference on the persecution of Christians taking place in Budapest…

    “To us, Europe is a Christian continent and we would like to keep it that way, and although we may not be able to preserve all of it, we would at least like to save the little slice of it that the Good Lord entrusted to the Hungarians.”

    “A group of Europe’s intellectual and political leaders want to create a mixed society that would completely change the continent’s cultural and ethnic identity, and Christian nature, within just a few generations.”

    Orban noted that Hungary is offering much needed help to persecuted Christians in the Middle East and Africa, contrasting this with EU policy which he stated was following the “Soros plan” to bring extremists into Europe. The Gateway Pundit reports…

    Whilst Hungary sought to offer aide at source, working directly with churches and providing assistance on the ground, the EU was ‘’bringing trouble over here”, he warned, in the form of Islamic extremism.

    “Hungary, however, is doing the opposite of what Europe is currently doing.
     We are doing what we must do according to local Christian leaders…We are providing assistance to enable people to move back to their homes’’, he explained, detailing Hungarian government projects aimed specifically at the prevention of persecution against Christians.

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Oct 5, 2017
    The Spanish government has rejected calls for mediation to resolve its dispute with Catalonia following the weekend independence referendum in the region. A statement released by the office of Spain’s prime minister stressed that Catalan officials must respect the country’s law in the first place. The statement added that Madrid will not negotiate over QUOTE anything illegal and will not be blackmailed. This, after the Catalan leader called for mediation to resolve the dispute. Carles Puigdemont had also said that the Spanish government has been catastrophic for the Catalan people, accusing it of ignoring millions of people who do not agree with Madrid. He said that his people were victims of police violence. Meanwhile, the European Commission says the Spanish government is entitled to use force in order to maintain law and order in Catalonia.

Spain Sends in ARMY to Catalonia as It Pushes Region to Brink Over Referendum

  • Spain Sends in ARMY to Catalonia as It Pushes Region to Brink Over Referendum
    by JON ROGERS,
    SPAIN has sent two convoys of troops into Catalonia in a move that is likely to anger the regional parliament.

    Troops from the Logistic Support Group 41 (AALOG 41) who are based in Aragon were told of their move at about 7pm last night. The exact number of soldiers is not known but according to the newspaper El Confidencial, two contingents of troops are being sent in 20 trucks. It is understood their orders are to provide logistical support to the Guardia Civil and national police still stationed in the region.

    The appearance of troops is likely to be seen as highly controversial as the President of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont has previously referred to the presence of the Guardia Civil and national police as “occupying forces” and had said they should leave all four of the Catalan provinces immediately.

    Former Vice President Alfonso Guerra defends the idea of sending the Army to Catalonia. The former president  and leader of socialist party PSOE Alfonso Guerra has defended the decision to send the Army into Catalonia in case the police were not able to control the situation created by a “pro-fascist” independence movement that is attempting “a coup d’etat”.

    In an interview with radio station Onda Cero, he recalled that in Paris the Army has been in the streets for a year because of the terrorist threat and that does not make France less of a democratic country.

    Alfonso Guerra has supported the message that the King addressed the Spaniards last night because he made an emphasis “where it is needed, in the members of the coup d’etat”, with whom he believes it is not possible to negotiate.

Catalonia Could BRING DOWN EU: Brussels Warned NOT To Wash Its Hands Or Risk Its FUTURE

  • Catalonia Could BRING DOWN EU: Brussels Warned NOT To Wash Its Hands Or Risk Its FUTURE
    THE CATALONIA referendum could spark the end of the European Union (EU) if Brussels continues to wash its hands of violent voting day scenes last weekend.

    The  has issued half-hearted condemnations of the violent scenes which saw Spanish police attack Catalonians attempting to vote in Sunday’s referendum. And with Brussels ignoring calls to mediate the situation, which has seen thousands of people protest against police brutality, Catalan officials have now hit out the bloc over its cowardly silence.

    Amadeu Altafaj, the Catalan government’s Brussels representative, said the EU’s “credibility and reputation” was being damaged by its solidarity with . And he said the horrific scenes last weekend, in which more than 800 people were injured by heavily-armed national guards, showed the EU “is not able to protect” its citizens. 

    He told Politico: “The credibility and the reputation of the European Union is at stake. “The Catalan government calls for an urgent international mediation, preferably European.  “If the EU is not able to protect 7.5 million of its citizens from violence and repression, it will fail not only to them but to the whole union.”

Catalonia To Declare Independence From Spain On Monday

  • Catalonia To Declare Independence From Spain On Monday
    by Tyler Durden,
    Spanish stocks tumbled, with the IBEX index sliding into a 10% correction, following an overnight report that Catalan leader Puigdemont was set to make a statement at 9 p.m. (1900 GMT) on Wednesday, after an all-party committee of the region’s parliament meets to agree a date for a plenary session on independence. That concluded moments ago and CUP, the pro-secession party that is a majority in the Catalan parliament, has announced it will declared independence from Spain in plenary session on Monday, El Pais reports.

    As reported last night, Catalan President Carles Puigdemont told the BBC that his government would ask the region’s parliament to declare independence after tallying votes from last weekend’s referendum, which Madrid says was illegal. “This will probably finish once we get all the votes in from abroad at the end of the week and therefore we shall probably act over the weekend or early next week,” he said in remarks published on Wednesday.

    Puigdemont’s comments came after Spain’s King Felipe VI accused secessionist leaders on Tuesday of shattering democratic principles and dividing Catalan society, as tens of thousands protested against a violent police crackdown on Sunday’s vote. The Catalan leader is due to make a statement at 9 p.m. (1900 GMT) on Wednesday, during which he is expected to announce that Catalonia will formally announce independence on Monday.

Former CIA Talks Islamic Invasion Plan

  • The Alex Jones Channel Published on Sep 15, 2017
    Alex Jones hears from a former CIA asset who breaks down the elites Islamic invasion plan.

This is an Illuminist psyop planned many decades ago, to foment fear, hate, violence, wars … to manipulate the world to the Satanic World War 3! The endgame is the Luciferian New World Order!

  • Samuel Huntington’s: Clash of Civilizations (Wikipedia)
    More recent factors contributing to a Western-Islamic clash, Huntington wrote, are the Islamic Resurgence and demographic explosion in Islam, coupled with the values of Western universalism—that is, the view that all civilizations should adopt Western values—that infuriate Islamic fundamentalists. All these historical and modern factors combined, Huntington wrote briefly in his Foreign Affairs article and in much more detail in his 1996 book, would lead to a bloody clash between the Islamic and Western civilizations. The political party Hizb ut-Tahrir also reiterate Huntington’s views in their published book, The Inevitability of Clash of Civilisation.[8]
