Cataluña 'to declare independence' if Spain cancels region's autonomy — DECISION DAY

Puigdemont

Hundreds of people were injured in clashes with police. Besides, Catalan pro-independence parties will probably vote an official declaration of independence in response to its triggering.

Such a move would be unprecedented in Spain's 40 years since the end of the Francisco Franco dictatorship. That and the Basques, another secessionist region but one so hapless at doing so, they might as well be called Scotland. He said Kosovo has "provoked similar processes in other regions of Europe".

"Catalonia is still in the headlines, with the Spanish government apparently keeping a tight chokehold on Catalan nationalists and not looking in any mood to compromise", says Shahab Jalinoos, a strategist at Credit Suisse.

But Michel said he takes responsibility for his tweet: "I condemn all forms of violence and appeal for dialogue".

Media captionWhy is there a Catalan crisis? The city of Barcelona, the second largest in Spain, is an important center of technology, industry and tourism.

Many others, including EU officials, have insisted that the tensions are an internal Spanish affair.

Ratings agencies have given it a low "speculative" grade, which means Catalonia struggles to borrow directly on financial markets, making it dependent on loans from the central government. He added that he was willing to negotiate with Madrid.

She did not want to comment on the Catalan referendum and its aftermath. "No other solution would be good".

"Let no one doubt that the government will do everything in its power to restore as soon as possible the legality and constitutional order", the government statement said.

But Spain's candidate city is Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, which is the stage of a deep ongoing political conflict.

Rajoy's office answered by announcing a special cabinet meeting that would discuss putting Article 155 of Spain's constitution into effect. They're like the anti-Switzerland, a country whose famed neutrality was rewarded by getting to keep all the Nazi gold in their banks.

Both pro- and anti-independence camps have vigorously debated the potential economic impact of splitting from the rest of Spain. But that doesn't mean there isn't room for a discussion about new measures of autonomy that may satisfy Catalonia's separatist-leaning voters and please those who wish to preserve unity, too.

The scope of article 155 is extremely wide: it entitles the Spanish government to "take all measures necessary to compel the community to meet the said obligations, or to protect the above mentioned general interest", with the authorisation of the Senate -where the ruling Popular Party (PP) has as majority.

During a radio interview, Tajani ensured on Thursday that 'it would be good for the Catalan government not to proclaim independence, because no one will support it in that direction'.

Catalonia's leader said the region's parliament would vote on independence if Spain continued "repression".

Puigdemont made the letter public only minutes before a 10 A.M. deadline he had been given by Rajoy to retract an ambiguous declaration of independence the Catalonian leader made last week. In 1978, the Spanish constitution recognised the right of Spanish "regions and nationalities" to self-rule, including Catalonia. Nothing will happen from one day to the next.

Catalans voted to secede in a referendum outlawed by Spain.

Thursday's developments extend a struggle between Madrid and Barcelona over the status of Catalonia since the disputed October 1 referendum on secession from Spain, which was halted by "excessive force" from Spanish national police.

PDECat party coordinator Marta Pascal outlined Puigdemont's plans after a meeting late Wednesday. Otherwise, Spain says it will begin seizing control.
