The measures that the Spanish government announced on Friday, to put an abrupt halt to the implementation in Catalonia of the electoral and parliamentary mandate clearly stated in the election manifestoes of the coalitions that were to win an outright majority in the Catalan Parliament on September 25 2015 (and were not challenged by anoyone on legal grounds), have shocked democrats everywhere. They have been described as a "coup d'état" against basic democratic principles.

These principles include respect for human rights laid down by the UN, the Council of Europe and the EU Fundamental Charter of Human Rights. 

On Thursday October 26 2017, Catalonia will forseeably cease to be an "internal matter of Spain", after seven years of insistent demands for the 2010 Statute of Autonomy to be ratified by the Catalan people in a referendum... in accordance with article 152 of the Spanish Constitution.
