if teatime stronger than sarah when. you want to start a life from our moscow studio with me to do it welcome to the program catalonia is deposed president says madrid's decision to sack the regional government goes against the expressed will of the people that came in his first statement since the spanish prime minister put his deputy in charge of the government a regional election has been shy jule for late december when trade to seize control as catalan leaders finally proclaimed outright independence today in parliament the parliament of our country a legitimate parliament to come largely expected step and largely for force there. citizens of california there comes a time when it is up to all of us to maintain the pulse of our country our peace our civic duty and dignity as we have always done and always will without any doubt
10:02 pm
was it was i was with. was was. was there but here we decided to sack the president vice president and all the high ranking officials of the council on government was it was it was was it was rallies in support of the country's unity continue through saturday
10:03 pm
hundreds gathered in one of the trade squares holding up and holding national flags sell at the same time in catalonia a pro independent syndicate is calling for a ten day general strike starting on monday all teams shall have to penske has been following a bounce in the cuts one capital at the spanish government in madrid says it is now taking full control of catalonia it says it has dismissed the catalonian government as well as high ranking officials and the president called us to push him out it also says it has dismissed some senior police officers including the chief of the police force in catalonia the most squatter who is already under investigation for sedition you know in addition to that these pronouncements by the government to matric just. hours after the catalan parliament actually voted for independence and declared independence to catalonia a republic here now i was in a crowd of pro independence
10:04 pm
a pool just surrounded the parliament and the national guard suggested they were up to twelve thousand people there and it was like a sea of people they screamed in delight yes yes yes or c c c in catalan and spanish when they heard that result we speak to some people this is what they told us they are guarding our liberty or freedom we are just so angry we feel like a country we feel like we are representing our our government we need to be free. what our population wants i think. people are specifically. clear that we are a nation. when people is trying to explain their opinions and someone is trying to punish that and trying to use the violence to stop that. is all about human
10:05 pm
being i feel kind of scared well spain says that the powers of catalonia will not be exercised by this punish vice president but the pro independence supporters i've spoken to here in barcelona say they will not recognize the authority of spain as far as they're concerned they have no seceded from spain and this is an independent republic indeed that is something that remains to be said because madrid says that within the legal framework of the spanish constitution its ability to take control of what it sees as being a spanish region is illegal and it is very likely that if this goes to the courts the courts will side with the spanish government on this one so in just less than a day since catalonia declared independence it's not yet clear whether they will. be able to retain that independence tool and to stand that some of the pro independence lobby are actually trying to draft a document which they hoping to release within forty eight hours which will show how they plan to secede from spain but it's not clear if they will be able to
10:06 pm
implement that what is clear though is that this crisis is everything and this remains a highly divisive issue in the society we discuss the crisis with the political commentator and also a former castle and payne and they have very different views on what's happened what they are trying to do is to demolish our regional ago remember institutions. and take control of or. social movements the problem right now is the nationalist movement the independent movement is living in about a war in another war because they have of their people in the radio and they want to keep remain in a spain you can say that these are democratic to to to loosen the voice of the people and what we have been trying to do hearing about one year is always not
10:07 pm
really like if you let all your years. to. the point is that you the one people be expressed. their opinion what we've been trying to do two years ago is to find the possibility for a couple in society to express this was on the first before over the business and did these movements and until this terrible time where it is not a question of how do you know which crimes democracy and right now the story but this is not a question of companies and business what you have in madrid this is a question of democracy and you should listen what people have got on people. little one for the future the international is going to give erica. right now despite he's going. to restore their constitution. in the region.
10:08 pm
of the garden and they want to keep their rights they want to keep it remain. it's very grim of you are just saying that you want to save fifty percent of people in society you should care about one hundred percent of problems without it getting violent or hitting the headlines today has been the broader reaction from around the world has been overwhelming support from the g eight and warnings about similar independence movements in the european union and it's to see it looks at who is and who isn't backing a united spain. there is plenty of reaction coming in given these major developments happening in catalonia albeit with very few surprises we have heard from the president of the european council donald tusk who has said that nothing changes and that the e.u. will continue to speak directly with madrid we've seen reaction from germany of
10:09 pm
course the german government said they do not recognize this unilateral declaration of independence we've heard from of course the french president also showing his support in full support to the spanish prime minister mariano rajoy here in the u.k. of course also plenty of reaction we've heard from downing street saying the does not and will not recognize the unilateral declaration of independence because this vote the referendum on october first was deemed illegal by spanish courts that was a reaction from to recent but from scotland's nicholas sturgeon we have seen a reaction of seeing the people of catalonia should have the ability to determine their own future so supporting what has happened in catalonia given scotland's own sort of plight when it comes to this issue we've heard from the u.s. as well the u.s. state department has. they support keeping strong and united spain together also similarly from nato so as all of these reactions are continuing to come in it's important to really remember that despite the fact that political leaders
10:10 pm
throughout the european union have consistently said they don't want catalonia to break away from spain to really keep the european union intact the pro independence movement in catalonia has repeatedly said that despite the fact that they want to leave spain they don't necessarily want to leave the european union whereas throughout the year we've heard them say that if catalonia doesn't fact leave spain they're going to have to essentially get at the back of the line to get back into the european union is independence polity m.e.p. david coben he believes the push for independence stems from a loss of power to brussels by a new book from chatting with president young i spoke with a couple of weeks ago. the european union have no intention of interfering in spanish affairs internal affairs i think they've now got the idea with the problems i was taking part in spain that maybe it's true good ideas here actually keep each of internal sales of the various countries because it's just
10:11 pm
a farce to many other countries in europe who have problems with the central administration spain doesn't govern themselves anymore is governed by the european union decisions a little bit me to drink they're made but maybe the city is the european union has brought this to a head it's not just being sick bring problems with the boss see the simple look. at the flood walls in belgium and various parts of europe where people want to secede. because people don't want to be ruled by faceless bureaucracy in brussels they want to make their own decisions locally and then the national government as well as of the richest well the richer parts of spades to there that's why they're feeling very upset you know watching r.t. international on kosovo. keeping a close eye on spain as the events there continue to unfold.
