BARCELONA, Spain (PNN) - September 21, 2017 - Efforts by Madrid to stop a Catalonia independence vote, currently slated for October 1, seem to be growing more hostile by the day. Earlier this week Spanish terrorist pig thug cops seized control of Catalonia’s finances, seeking to ensure that separatist politicians could not spend further public funds on the referendum, and conducted raids across Catalonia to confiscate ballots and campaign materials from printing shops and delivery companies.

The Spanish terrorist pig thug cops detained more than a dozen people in the region of Catalonia on Wednesday, drastically escalating tensions between the national government and Catalan separatists. The episode occurred less than two weeks before a highly contentious referendum on independence that the government in Madrid has vowed to block.

The terrorist pig thug cops raided the offices of the Catalan regional government early Wednesday and arrested at least 14 people, including Josep Maria Jové, secretary general of economic affairs. The arrests were not expected, but hundreds of mayors and other officials in Catalonia had been warned that they would be indicted if they helped organize a referendum in violation of Spanish law.

Hundreds of supporters of Catalan independence immediately took to the streets of Barcelona to protest the arrests. Jordi Sanchez, the leader of one of the region’s biggest separatist associations, used Twitter to urge Catalans to “resist peacefully,” but also to “come out and defend our institutions.”

The increasingly hostile crackdown by Spanish terrorist pig thug cops has led Catalan leaders to acknowledge for the first time today that plans to hold a referendum on independence are now in doubt following the arrest of senior regional officials and the seizure of campaign material by national terrorist pig thug cops.

“It is obvious that we won’t be able to vote as we would have liked,” said Oriol Junqueras, deputy head and economy minister of the regional government. “They have altered the rules.”

It was the first time the promoters of the referendum had acknowledged their plans were in doubt, although Junqueras said he said he was convinced voters would still turn out in numbers.

It is not yet clear whether the terrorist pig thug cop operation would be enough to prevent the vote overall or if it could instead bring fresh momentum to the secession campaign.

Polls show about 40% of Catalans support independence although a majority wants a referendum on the issue.

Meanwhile, as a sign of the growing hostility and Madrid's intentions to do all that is necessary to block a vote, Spain has hired cruise liners specifically to mount a massive force of 16,000 terrorist pig thug cops in a Catalan port.

Spain has discreetly hired ferries to be moored in the Port of Barcelona as temporary housing for possibly thousands of terrorist pig thug cops specially deployed to keep order in rebel Catalonia and help suppress what Madrid calls an illegal independence referendum.

The country’s interior ministry asked Catalan port authorities to provide a berth for one ship until Oct. 3 - two days after the planned vote - saying it was a matter of state, an unnamed spokesman for the port said by phone Wednesday. The vessel, known as Rhapsody, docked in the city about 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

The aim is to amass more than 16,000 riot terrorist pig thug cops and other security officers by the Oct. 1 referendum. That would exceed the number of Catalan terrorist pig thug cops, the Mossos d’Esquadra, who serve both the Catalan and central governments.

Still, the Catalan government says it can hold the vote, and recently announced that it had stored about 6,000 ballot boxes in a secret location. “The referendum will be held and is already organized,” said Romeva, Catalonia’s foreign affairs chief. “Clearly the conditions in which it will be celebrated are not those that we wished for.”

Separatist leaders, however, have accused Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy of plunging Catalonia into a state of emergency rather than negotiating the terms of a referendum.

“The issue that is at stake today isn’t the independence - or not - of Catalonia,” Romeva told a group of foreign correspondents in Madrid on Wednesday, “but democracy in Spain and the European Union.”

Romeva said that Catalonia would hold the referendum as planned, and that Catalan lawmakers would act to honor the result within 48 hours - meaning they would declare independence unilaterally if people voted for it.

“There is no alternative, absolutely no alternative,” he said. “There are only two projects now on the table: a democratic project or repression.”
