    They came pretty close on Sunday, the way the national police shut down polling places and beat up voters.

    Reportedly the Catalan legislature plans to declare Catalonia's independence next Monday. That is if they are allowed to meet. I expect armed forces to occupy their legislative chamber so that they may have to meet in some secret location. I also expect the Madrid government will declare the Catalan regional government disbanded and null-and-void.

    So what happens if they declare independence? They will be under military/police occupation by Spain and no other countries are likely to recognize them. I would guess that we would see a general strike. (Catalonia is responsible for a disproportionate share of Spain's economy.) That might devolve into street violence.

    Spain's the fourth largest Euro-zone country so troubles in Spain will have ripple effects, even up there in haughty Berlin.
