Spain: Pro-Catalan parties launch independence mobilisation campaign

Left-wing Catalan pro-independence parties and trade unions presented a new campaign in favour of an effective declaration of Catalonian independence, in Barcelona on Wednesday. The new 'Republica Ara' ('Republic Now') campaign was presented during a press conference in front of the Catalan government building. A workers' union delegate defined the campaign as one of the «mobilisation» of... Еще citizens, to «push» the Catalan government to proclaim a Catalan republic «once and for all.» Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has given Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont until Thursday to clarify his position on the issue of independence. If the response is deemed unsatisfactory the Spanish government has threatened to invoke Article 155, which would establish direct rule from Madrid.
