    Default Catalan MEPs warn of military threats from Madrid

    Things hotting up or just empty bluster?

    Source: AFP, Tanjug BRUSSELS -- Catalan European Parliament members caused a storm in Spain Wednesday when they sought EU's intervention over what they said was a military threat from Madrid.


    Four MEPs stated in a letter to Brussels that the country's authorities threatened the northeastern region where demands are growing for independence.
    "We are writing to you to convey our deep concern over a series of threats of the use of military force against the Catalan population," they wrote to European Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding.

    Considering the Spanish government ran death squads against the Basque opposition I wouldn't put anything past them.

    This has been going on for some time now. Disgusting behaviour by the Spanish regime. The way they've gone about keeping their rotten kingdom together with force is truly shocking, especially their treatment of the Basque people. Hopefully Catalonia will rise as a fellow free nation soon, along with the other occupied nations of Iberia.

    Moody's downgraded several Spanish regions ratings yesterday.

    Moody's downgrades five Spanish regions; confirms ratings of other five regions
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    No surprise to see a PD support a ruthless regime like Spain.
