These are my views on the violence used by the Spanish Government on the Catalan referendum voters.

This is taken from my answer to a Question on Quora regarding Catalonia.

The disgusting violent and illegal actions of both the Spanish Police and Government are a reaction to People’s democracy that the People of the European Union should be very concerned about.

The cowardly and self-interested reactions of the E.U and its member state Governments is a display of such unbelievable arrogance and deliberate ignorance of human rights that it should act as a warning to all people of the E.U.

We have just witnessed the true face of the E.U. Governments and Presidents. When faced with a decison that requires the E.U to uphold the rights of the People or force the self-interest of the E.U Super State onto E.U Citizens the E.U will subjugate the people rights.

Democracy is the will of the People for the people and by the People. It is not for a European Super State and the Spanish Government to ignore and act illegally against.

The European Convention of Human Rights is clear explicit and a legal requirement of both the E.U and its Member States to enforce.

“Article 10 states Freedom of expression. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.”

As one whose freedom of expression has been suppressed by both the U.K and Australian Government and the E.U who I will be taking to Court, it is a freedom I am very careful to protect.

Both the E.U and the Spanish Government must be taken to Court for what is a clear breach of Human Rights Laws. Any Police who used violence in what was a Peaceful assembly must face criminal charges. The People of Spain should seek the immediate resignation of the Spanish Prime Minister.

We must support the People of Catalonia. If we continue to allow our arrogant and dictatorial Governments to suppress our right to decide the democracy of our own lives then what little human rights we have left will be taken away.

What is a happy day for you?

My answer to this Question on Quora

A Happy Day for me is a Day that a Government somewhere in the World is made to listen to the People. We have the most arrogant, corrupt, ineffective and intellectually challenged Governments in the history of the World.

They are so arrogant they believe they can ignore the voice and will of the People.

They are corrupt in allowing third party Government so that they do not have to take responsibility for anything.

They are so ineffective that they did nothing as 300,000 Syrians were brutally killed.

They are so intellectually challenged they gave us Climate Change and do not know how to remedy the damage they have caused.

The Governments of the U.N Security Council have done nothing for the dispossessed in Burma.

The Governments of the E.U have done nothing to stop the Spanish Government blocking freedom of expression in Catalonia.

I am happy whenever Governments have to listen to the People and act on their will – which is not very often.

The sight of Theresa May, who is the most arrogant Prime Minister the U.K has ever had, backing down almost daily makes my day. So too do the People of Catalonia standing up to a Spanish Government who has illegally tried to suppress their rights.
