CHAOS IN SPAIN – Clashes Follow Catalonia Independence Referendum!

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen following massive clashes in Spain following the Catalonia independence referendum.
90% of Catalans voted for succession from Spain, but the Spanish federal government sent out civil guards to block polling stations and beat people over the head with batons for attempting to vote.
This is the height of statism. Democracy which is already a coercive collective use of force against the minority is of course completely subjective. The state claims you may cast your vote as your voice, but only under the sanction of the all-mighty government. If not by absolute permission, you will be met with force.
This is precisely what the people of Catalonia are facing right now following Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s claim following the referendum that the referendum never happened.
Catalonia also happens to be the biggest economy in Spain and happens to provide a lot of tax revenue for the state. This too could be a very big reason why this referendum has been denied.
However, one should also remember the centralized power structure and how the fewer governments means the more ease of control for the global establishment at the UN and of course at the European Union which has a firm grip on Spain who has seen one banking crisis after another in recent years including the bail-in of Banco Popular.
The people of Catalonia are seeing statism on full display. The control of the establishment, not the demand of the individual. Simply more examples of the need for true voluntaryism.

Stay tuned for more from WAM!

    I hope the families of the police officers see the polices faces and are ashamed of their sons and daughters that are beating up old women and men….how shameful!

    Wow! Denying the Democratic process is just a dictatorship! If this doesn’t alert other Spaniards, they will be doomed. Whether I agree or disagree to the pples desire to leave, the catalonians live in a democracy and have every right to hold a referendum.

  • Fantomas

    In 2014 there was a referendum in which over 5 millions of Catalans voted. The result was 51% of the votes were NOT in favor of independence. In this referendum only the pro-independent voters (about 2,200,000) voted. So to say that 90% are in favor of independence is not true.

    Rajoy should have just ignored the referendum but instead sent in the skull-crackers because he’s not the sharpest Goldman-Sachs tool in the shed. However, Catalonia secession would destroy the economy of Spain. Also, pay attention: They are NOT “Catalonians”, they are Catalans. You just made up that word instead of bothering to do a 5-second search. It hurts my ears and embarrasses me as an American. Your ignorance of the region disqualifies you as experts.
