El Procés segons el Poble Català

La llibertat del poble català oprimida no pot dependre mai de la forma de govern de l’estat que la domina; depèn solament i exclusivament de la voluntat dels seus fills per assolir-la. El procés a favor de la independència de Catalunya va concloure, almenys de moment, el passat dia 21 de desembre, amb un missatge clar per als qui pretenien descarrilar: els catalans volen ser independents i sobirans. Els ...Read full article...

The Process of Independence according to the Catalan People

The freedom of an oppressed Catalan nation can never depend on the state or form of government that dominates it, should depend only on the determination of their children to achieve it. The process in favor of the independence of Catalonia concluded, at least for the time being, last December 21, with a clear message to those who intended to derail it: Catalonians want to be independent and sovereign. ...Read full article...

Israel Wants Palestinians Ethnically Cleansed from Jerusalem

Israel is a ruthless Ziofascist state. Self-defense against its viciousness is considered a form of “terrorism.” It punishes entire Palestinian families and communities. Its agenda includes daily state terror. Partnering with Washington, it wages wars of aggression at its discretion, along with other high crimes against defenseless Palestinians – tormenting, imprisoning, brutalizing and killing them with impunity, committing slow-motion genocide. It wants Jerusalem for its exclusive capital, ethnically cleansed ...Read full article...

UN General Assembly to Vote on Rescinding Trump’s Jerusalem Declaration

On Thursday, General Assembly members will meet in a rare emergency special session (ESS) in the wake of America’s veto of SC resolution opposing Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. A draft resolution is expected to be adopted overwhelmingly – America, Israel, and perhaps a few US dominated Pacific island states alone voting against it. Security Council resolutions alone (with 15 members, 5 permanent, 10 rotating) are binding, ...Read full article...

An assessment and the perspectives of Donald Trump

During the Presidential electoral campaign, Donald Trump promised to respect the rules of the Republican Party. At the time, no-one believed in his capacity to succeed. However, he waged a campaign based on the historical foundations of the Party, long ago forgotten by its politicians, and he eliminated them all. Right up until the announcement of his victory, the opinion polls claimed he was losing, just as today, they ...Read full article...

The United States inability to admit reality

While Presidents Putin and Trump continue to make progress on the question of Syria, the United States senior civil servants in service at the UNO have locked into a round of arm-wrestling with Russia. Refusing to investigate a crime that they have already tried a priori, they provoked not one, but four vetos at the Security Council. For Thierry Meyssan, the schizophrenic behaviour of the United States on the ...Read full article...

Catalan President Puigdemont on his way to a Spanish Jail

Puigdemont and four consellers arrested after surrendering in police station BRUSSELS – The prosecutor’s office in Brussels was preparing to order his arrest in order to appoint a judge. Belgium has not accepted the petition for political assilum and in doing so, it has condemned the Catalan leaders to face jail time imposed by the Madrid regime. The former President of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont and the four exconsellers ...Read full article...

Washington Corruption Is Unparalleled In History

Dr. George Szamuely, a distinguished member of the Global Policy Institute of London Metropolitan University, is a British citizen and not a partisan of US politics. He has carefully investigated the so-called Russian dossier and reports that it was entirely the work of the Hillary Democrats. This fact was known at the beginning both to former CIA director John Brennan and to former FBI director James Comey. Yet both ...Read full article...

Game of Thrones: PP and PSOE take over Catalonia

Officials said on TVE, the government propaganda outlet, that the intention of the Government and PSOE would be to intervene Catalonia. What does a tyrant and an oppressive regime do when someone or some people do not fall into line? They use violence, coercion and threats to take over power. Taking over Catalonia against the will of its people is exactly what the Spanish government intends to do. In ...Read full article...

Puigdemont not better than Mariano Rajoy

Yesterday, Puigdemont responded to Rajoy’s threats with some threats of himself. In doing so, the Catalan politician demonstrated that he is no better than Rajoy. Independence, self-determination and freedom are not bargaining chips for political agendas, they are rights that people have and that should never be used as conditionals to achieve goals or to challenge policy. On October 1, Catalonia voted massively to become independent, yet, Catalan leaders ...Read full article...

What Next for Catalonia?

On Tuesday, Catalan President Carles Puigemont and majority regional parliamentarians declared independence from Spain – then suspended it to pursue dialogue with Madrid. The document signed said in part: “We establish the Catalan Republic as an independent and sovereign, legal, democratic and social state.” “Catalonia restores today its full sovereignty, lost and longed for, after decades of trying, honestly and loyally, institutional coexistence with the people of the Iberian ...Read full article...

Catalan President and Parliament Obliged to Declare Independence

Pre-election polls and referendum results showed Catalan people overwhelmingly wanted independence from fascist Spain – the Mariano Rajoy regime a political dictatorship, much like Fransciso Franco’s military one. Madrid-sponsored police state violence against Catalan voters last Sunday unified popular secessionist support. The UN Charter and other international laws affirm the right of self-determination. Catalan President Carles Puigdemont said he’d support the will of the people, indicating he’d declare independence ...Read full article...

Self-Determination: A Universal Right

A Catalan declaration of independence and self-determination appears likely, perhaps on Friday. It’s a fundamental principle under international law, regarded as jus cogens, a higher or compelling law. Nations with constitutional or statute laws in violation of this principle are illegal – including Article 155 of Spain’s constitution, authorizing Madrid to suspend Catalonia’s autonomous status, blocking its declaration of independence, its self-determination. People everywhere have the right to choose ...Read full article...

Sunday’s Catalonia Independence Referendum

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s regime is going all-out to block the referendum. He governs like a tinpot despot, waging class war, enforcing police state repression, arresting Catalan officials, threatening others with criminal prosecution for supporting the autonomous region’s self-determination right, affirmed under the UN Charter and other international law. He’s no democrat. A modern-day Francisco Franco defines his policies. Spaniards nationwide should revolt against his right-wing extremism. Spain’s ...Read full article...

Why the Catalonian Referendum Matters to Europe?

The realization of the referendum will mark the fate of representative democracy on the continent. The Catalan Referendum is not only a Catalan problem or a Spanish problem, but a European issue whose result may crack democracy as we know it in western Europe. The situation in Catalonia is a fight for self-determination, and the right to vote. Simply put, what happens in Catalonia will set a precedent for ...Read full article...
