Pro-independence parties pushing for Catalonia to break away and form a new Mediterranean nation have won a landmark vote by capturing a regional Spanish parliamentary majority - setting up a possible showdown with the government in Madrid.

With 99 per cent of the vote counted, the Together for Yes group of secessionists from across a broad political spectrum had 62 seats in the 135-member regional parliament.

Catalans are fiercely proud of their own distinct language and culture. Many who favour breaking away from Spain say their region, which represents nearly a fifth of Spain's economic output, pays too much in taxes and receives less than its fair share of government investment.

Bilderberg wants the big powerful countries in europe broken up and weakened.
An EU composed of Many Weak Small States can be over ruled by a large powerful Federal Govt.

Its not just Spain . . .
Its a pattern . . . .

The media are deceptive here. This will be a Region of the EU, not a sovereign nation.

Parliament of Catalonia voted for referendum of independence next year.

Its sad, but understandable that Spain will do almost anything to hang onto the wealth of Catalonia.

I wonder if an independent Catalonia would wish to remain in the EuroZone ?

It is not a country.

It is a region of the EU.

Which is a region of the UN.

EU draft legislation is forwarded by the Parliament's Bureau or the President to the Regional Executive.
