The Catalan parliament to declare independence ahead of Madrid’s vote on whether to impose Article 155.

But the Government in Madrid refused to recognise Catalonia’s independence and warned direct rule would be immediately imposed – by force if necessary.

The moves mirror the causes of Spain’s 1936 Civil War which claimed HALF A MILLION lives.

The Catalan parliament passed with 70 votes in favour, ten against and 2 blank ballots in the Catalan parliament in Barcelona.

Ministers stood, clapped and sang the Catalonian national anthem, Els Segador, immediately after the result was announced.

Thousands celebrated the vote in the streets as they heard the announcement, singing “Out, out, get the Spanish flag out.”

Many deputies in the 135-seat chamber had walked out in protest before the vote took place. The assembly’s legal team had warned that the vote would be illegal.

The Spanish government has called an emergency Cabinet meeting for this evening in the wake of the vote, they will vote on whether to impose Article 155 and seize control of the rogue region.

El Pais is reporting that two meetings will take place. First today, the government will hold a Cabinet meeting to respond to the pro-independence challenge, La Moncloa sources say.

At this meeting a Constitutional Court appeal against the independence declaration will be approved.

The second meeting will adopt the intervention measures that have been authorized by the Senate under Article 155.

Before midnight on Friday, the intervention of the regional government and the removal of its leaders will be carried out.
