Resist Spain peacefully, Catalan separatist leader urges


(Sydney Morning Herald) Catalan separatist leader Carles Puigdemont called Saturday for peaceful resistance to direct rule by Madrid, a day after Spain’s central government fired him and dissolved his government in response to Catalonia’s unilateral declaration of independence.

The Madrid government, meanwhile, began implementing its administrative takeover of Catalonia, the first such imposition of direct central rule in a Spanish region since the advent of democracy nearly 40 years ago.

Mr Puigdemont, in a brief pre-recorded statement shown on Catalan public TV, called for resistance to Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s directives, but offered no specifics about his own situation.
