Catalan report casts doubt on an accession veto by Spain (European Voice)

Friday, 18 april 2014 | European Voice
By Dave Keating - 15.04.2014 / 09:00 CET European Voice It is "difficult to imagine" that Spain could successfully veto EU entry, a report by the Catalan government has concluded. Catalonia would probably face a smooth transition to becoming a European Union member state if it were to become independent from Spain, according to a report by the Catalan government. The report, published yesterday (14 April) by the advisory council for national transition of the government of Catalonia, analyses whether a future Catalan state would automatically join the EU and, if not, what the possibilities would be for its re-admission.

Thursday, 17 april 2014 | Open Democracy
We recommend the following article by Fernando Betancor published in Open Democracy on April 10th, 2014. PM Mariano Rajoy has refused even to acknowledge the possibility of a Catalan referendum on independence. Does he realise that his options to save the integrity of the Spanish state are dwindling? Three representatives of the Catalan regional government travelled to Madrid yesterday to formally request that the central government grant the Generalitat the necessary authority to hold a referendum on independence.

La Constitution espagnole sert d’excuse pour dissimuler le refus de dialogue

Thursday, 17 april 2014
Lorsque le mouvement indépendantiste a pris l’essor qu’il a aujourd’hui, que les termes « référendum » et « consultation » – issus de deux manifestions de masse ayant rassemblé chacune plus d’un million et demi de personnes qui exigeaient de pouvoir voter – se sont imposés sur la scène publique, qu’une majorité de partis politiques catalans a décidé d’écouter le peuple et d’organiser le référendum en question, près de 90% des forces politiques espagnoles ont serré les rangs et se sont retranchés comme un seul homme derrière une réponse uniformisée : ce n’est pas possible ; c’est illégal ; la Constitution qui protège tous les Espagnols l’interdit.

The inconsequential vote of April 8 in Madrid

Monday, 14 april 2014
On Tuesday April 8, 2014, representatives of the Catalan Parliament came to Madrid seeking the Spanish Cortes' consent for a referendum in which the people of Catalonia could express their opinion about their nation's present and future relation with Spain. As the world is aware, a majority of Catalans are clearly uneasy with the drift taken by Spanish politics in recent times, and resent the impact that this is having on their collective status within Spain. It wouldn't seem out of place, then, to try and find out how deep this discontent goes and exactly how widespread it is in Catalan society. [+]

Monday, 14 april 2014
Am 8. April 2014 begaben sich Vertreter des katalanischen Parlaments nach Madrid, um dort bei den spanischen Cortes um Zustimmung für eine Volksabstimmung zu werben, durch die das katalanische Volk seine Meinung über sein derzeitiges und künftiges Verhältnis zu Spanien ausdrücken möchte.
