A surprising lack of support apparent on here for what's happening to our adopted neighbors ?

There is plenty on other social media. Maybe it's best not to have political views on posted on the forum? Or maybe it's a good place to voice our opinions?
Personally I am disgusted by the behaviour of the policia nationale and the guardia civil.
General strike tomorrow!

I hear what you say Jack.  Plenty on other media and perhaps best to keep the forum free of politics (where possible).  Opinions don't seem to make any difference anyway (especially in Spain). Good to see the ARCA signatures going well though (7,922 as I type).

Terrible scenes in Barcelona and other areas yesterday . A very bad image of Spain for all the world to see. Don't want to get into politics so wont say more.

Thursday: Eurona have decided to leave Barcelona for Madrid also Sabadell bank have decided to move to Alicante and Caixabank have stated they will probably move to the baleric islands.

Another company Proclinic Expert has also decided to move to Zaragoza (the company bills around 100 million euros per year)

Another bank, Banca Mediolanum, has announced it is leaving Catalunya.
Also two producers of Cava, Freixenet and Codorniu, are considering leaving.

Also contemplating leaving is Gas Natural, a meeting is convened for friday afternoon.

The central government has passed a decree enabling businesses to leave Catalunya without having to convene a meeting of shareholders.

In a suprising interview in the Financial Times Artur Mas (former president of Catalunya) says that Catalunya isn't ready for 'real independence'.

Unfortunately the FT article is subscription only but you can read about it in Spanish here

The declaration of Independence has been suspended for 'talks'.
The Catalan government are suspending their drive for Independence.
