Finally Belgium Speaks Out Against Spanish Oppression
Finally Belgium Speaks Out Against Spanish Oppression by Martin Armstrong – Armstrong Economics
The Belgium Prime minister Charles Michel has come out against Spain and now other European leaders applaud him for taking a position against the repressive action by Spain’s Civil Guard and National Police despite the fact that those in Brussels remain silent because they care only about their own jobs. Brussels has been silent fearing others will rise up as separatists against their rule. So Brussels has demonstrated to the world that human rights come second to self-interest. This oppression in Spain has done far more damage to the EU than most people realize. Their silence has been taken as proof that they too would resort to violence to protect their jobs as well.
Belgium’s prime minister Charles Michel come out against the official European line on the crisis between Catalonia and Spain. He has stated the obvious that Europe cannot stand for human rights accepting all these refugees while oppressing and dissent among its own people.
Michela has called for “European or international” mediation to start a dialogue between the Catalan and Spanish governments. Spain has taken the very same actions under Rajoy as Franco acting as a fascist dictator rather than as an elected official in a pretend democracy. If Rajoy was Putin, the world would be calling for his head, yet the EU has been silent.
In a move that is set to further infurate the Catalan separatists for whom the breakaway region’s police chief has emerged as a quasi-folk hero, and prompting an even more vocal push for independence, moments ago the Spanish Public Prosecutor’s Office petitioned Madrid Judge Carmela Lamela, investigating charges of sedition in Barcelona on September 20, to jail Catalan Police chief Josep Lluis Trapero on remand, court reporters for Spanish media tweeted.
According to Bloomberg, Jordi Sanchez, head of the pro-independence campaign group the Catalan National Assembly, and Jordi Cuixart, who leads the Catalan cultural lobby group Omnium, are also to be interrogated by magistrates.
