– Spanish Military Threatens Treason As Catalonia Seeks Secession Referendum (ZeroHedge, Sep 24, 2012)
“Do not play with the feelings of the Catalans” is the totally unveiled threat after Catalonia’s beggars-can-be-choosers demand for an unconditional bailout fell on deaf ears. The traditionally separatist-minded province has decided, according to ANSAmed, has decided to pull a Greece – and escalate with a move to secession. A resolution, on the right of the Catalan people to cut off ties with the Spanish state, will be voted on Thursday by the regional parliament.
This statement of “the will of Catalan people to vote on the bond with the State of Spain” opens the way for forthcoming elections on November 25 to become a referendum on the sovereignty of Catalonia.
The Spanish military are not taking this lying down with the counter-threat that these ‘separatists’ and their ‘inappropriate and unacceptable’ threat to break-up Spain shall be, according to El Economista, charged with high treason. We are sure Draghi has a ‘grand plan’ for this.
