Catalan president Carles Puigdemont :
I want to follow people’s will for Catalonia to become an independent state.

...

We propose to suspend the effect of the independence declaration... in order to work towards putting into practice the result of the referendum... Today, we are making a gesture of responsibility in favour of dialogue.


no independence today

Ok. So what now? It's not as if they can fight off Spain. They have no allies willing to help them fight off Spain. Are they planning on hunger strikes and strongly worded letters?

If Catalonia gets its independence, it won't be because of Catalans...it will be at Spain's pleasure.

spain will invoke §155 of the Constitution

If a Self-governing Community does not fulfil the obligations imposed upon it by the Constitution or other laws, or acts in a way that is seriously prejudicial to the general interest of Spain, the Government, after having lodged a complaint with the President of the Self-governing Community and failed to receive satisfaction therefore, may, following approval granted by the overall majority of the Senate, take all measures necessary to compel the Community to meet said obligations, or to protect the abovementioned general interest.


so basically, goodbye Catalonian government. the only way forward for you is to do it american style. right now, it looks grim. but who knows, maybe they've been importing ARs for years and hiding them from authorities. brings a tear to my eye thinking about all that freedom

either way, historical time

In the 90s I remember vaguely thinking "why doesn't anything interesting happen like I read about in history books."

Oh sweet summer child
