Financial Times. Spain promises non-interference on Scotland. 02.02.2014


Spain promises non-interference on Scotland

By Tobias Buck in Madrid and Mure Dickie in Edinburgh

Spain has no intention of interfering in Scotland’s push for independence and is willing to consider an eventual Scottish application to join the EU as a separate state, the foreign minister said in remarks that will bolster the nationalist campaign.

Madrid has long been among the most vocal opponents of separatist movements in Europe, reflecting its struggle to contain secessionist pressures in its own region of Catalonia. Spain’s internal problems have prompted speculation it would block a bid by an independent Scotland to rejoin the EU.

José-Manuel García-Margallo, foreign minister, told the Financial Times: “If Scotland becomes independent in accordance with the legal and institutional procedures, it will ask for admission [to the EU]. If that process has indeed been legal, that request can be considered. If not, then not,” he said.

While he refused to comment directly on whether Spain might veto Scottish accession to the EU after an independence vote, he insisted the cases of Scotland and Catalonia were “fundamentally different”. Madrid would continue to resist a Catalan plan to hold its own referendum on independence less than two months after the Scottish vote in September, he said.

Wij willen stemmen

        06/02/2014        |    Artur Mas
    De Catalanen hebben de wens uitgesproken om zich in een referendum uit te spreken over onafhankelijkheid. Artur Mas vraagt dat die wens zou worden gerespecteerd. Hij zal niet verdwijnen door dat niet te doen.

Wie? President van Catalonië

Wat? Als de bevolking van Catalonië zich uitspreekt voor een onafhankelijke staat, dan zal ze er alles aan doen om die overgang zo soepel mogelijk te laten verlopen. met groot respect voor de Europese Unie en alles waar ze voor staat.

Het is een fundamenteel principe van de Europese democratie dat het volk beslist over de grote vraagstukken van het openbaar belang en over de toekomst van de staat. Het volk van Catalonië, een van de oudste naties van Europa, wenst en verdient de mogelijkheid om zelf te kiezen of het een nieuwe staat binnen Europa wordt.

Catalunha: “O movimento independentista transmite alegria e isso é muito difícil de combater”

Madrid podia ter impedido que se chegasse aqui, mas agora, diz Vicent Partal, não há recuo. O director do diário digital Vilaweb não tem dúvidas: os catalães vão mesmo votar para decidir se querem continuar a fazer parte de Espanha.

Para entrar na redacção do VilaWeb não é preciso tocar a nenhuma campainha. Entra-se pela loja e a loja vê-se da rua. A ideia é “vender produtos com ideias”, diz-nos Vicent Partal, fundador e director do VilaWeb. Neste momento, a ideia principal é “a ideia de um país”. As cores não enganam, o amarelo e o vermelho da bandeira estão por todo o lado. Há T-shirts amarelas com uma urna e a palavra “Sim”, o jogo da glória em versão catalã, imãs, livros – um deles é A un pam da la independência, o último livro de Partal – e, claro, a estelada, a bandeira independentista da Catalunha.

Partal gosta deste seu novo espaço, aberto em 2012. Ter uma redacção realmente aberta aos leitores é mais fácil num espaço assim, convidativo e bem situado, no Raval, a dois passos do MACBA, o Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Barcelona. Aqui se fazem cafés semanais com os leitores e com convidados chamados a debater temas da actualidade.
