So we've got a general election in #Spain today. Socialist PM Pedro Sánchez is the frontrunner, although it's not certain that he will be able to put up a ruling majority. Here's a thread with a few thoughts on #28A:

1/
What's new?

a) The Socialists are set to win, a first since 2008
b) Five national parties will get over 10% of the vote
c) The far-right will enter parliament, a first since 1982
d) The conservative PP faces an assault on the right not seen since the UCD collapsed in the 80s

2/
The campaign has been heavily polarized between left and right.

The right (PP + Ciudadanos + Vox) has focused on #Catalonia, hammering Sánchez's credibility and accusing him of being ready to cut the country into pieces for the sake of remaining in office.

Putting aside the trial of the separatist leaders, there is much else to clarify, especially re foreign perception of events in #Catalonia and #Spain and the class divide. A few thoughts - thread begins here / abro hilo (en inglés).
As the generations that lived through WW2 and the post-war reconstruction begin to disappear forever, Europe is once again at something of a turning point, socially and politically.
The last thing a forward-looking Europe needs now is a resurgence of petty regionalisms and ethno-nationalisms. It has too much else to deal with, what with an immigration crisis, a decaying America, a disoriented and departing UK, and a resurgent Russia.

Last Tuesday, a political trial against members of the previous @govern, against social leaders of the main civil organizations of #Catalonia and against the former president of the @parlamentcat began in Spain #CatalanEU
The simple fact that this trial could take place brings #ShametoSpain and, therefore, to the entire #EuropeanUnion, whose main institutions have chosen to remain silent, when facing such a disgraceful situation where democracy is at stake #CatalanEU

Two things that I'm thinking about as very serious issues this weekend:

1. Do you remember how quickly the Soviet Bloc collapsed? We're all thinking about life post-#Brexit as sort of muddling through, business as usual, but I think that's unlikely. >>>
If there's no deal, if the borders clog up - both looking virtually certain just now - there will be a sudden, long lasting, critical shortage of fresh food. Britain isn't used to that. I believe there will be civil disorder. >>>
It means there will be less food in the shops. It means the prices will rise. It means the poor will go without. It means there will be hunger. It means that social inequity will become even more stark. >>>

Meet @Garexit, the official Twitter account of the Gary, Indiana secession campaign. If you live in Gary (or anywhere else) and have never heard of this movement, that's not surprising, as we made it up in early April.
We decided to use @Garexit to test a couple of the social media automation services we've seen used by other bots, and simultaneously gauge the online activity around various secession movements.
We started with paper.li. This service is a search-based news aggregator. We configured it to gather articles based on the search terms "Indiana secession movements" and "Texas secession", and to link the articles on Twitter.

Spain’s new FM, Josep Borrell, had this to say in mid-December in the run-up to the Catalan election, with @KRLS Puigdemont already in exile & Oriol @junqueras in prison in Madrid:👇
On @KRLS Puigdemont: "In Belgium he’s got his friends from the Flemish nationalist party, which is the nearest thing to fascism that exists in Europe."

On disinfecting #Catalonia:
"Stitching up wounds is all well and good… wounds have to be stitched up, it’s true. But before wounds are closed they must disinfected [laughter and applause]...

OK, some context on #Spain: last week, a court found that the ruling #PP had been using irregular funds for years. The Socialist party (#PSOE) launched a motion of non confidence, which is being discussed today in Parliament (opens thread)
Initially,nobody in #Europe cared much:after all, this was to be the second time #Rajoy was questioned by the Parliament (last year, on an initiative by #Podemos) and Socialist leader #Sanchez (who is not an MP, as he lost his seat last year) did not seem to have too much support
Mainly because he needs 176 votes, which he can only get if MOST regional parties (including heavily pro-indy forces in #Catalonia and #basquecountry) support him, as #Ciudadanos has said they would not support the motion, because they want new elections.

O relato pró-Espanha é, na maioria das vezes, fascista. É a de uma Espanha com um passado glorioso e de conquistas (se esquecem que perderam todas as colonias nas Américas, África e Ásia) e, mesmo dizendo que a "Cataluña es España", tratam os catalães como "eles", como inimigos.
É um argumento construído pela ditadura franquista a base de muita censura, assassinatos e repressão que acabou moldando a política e virando o modus operandi mesmo depois da morte do ditador fascista Francisco Franco. Os bascos que o digam! #Espanha #Catalunha
Está tão enraizada na cultura espanhola que até a esquerda do país é incapaz de se sensibilizar com a repressão contra o povo catalão, já que a Catalunha quer a independência e desmembrar o Estado é "ilegal”, digno de "traidores" #Espanha #Spain #Catalonia

To all those angered by latest developments on #Catalonia, please read @scotgov statement below. Our support for Catalan self determination and strong opposition to Spain’s decision to seek the arrest and imprisonment of independence supporting politicians is well established 1/
2/ Under Extradition Act 2003, Scottish Ministers have no power to intervene in the process and our police and courts are legally obliged to follow due process. This does not change @scotgov political view...
3/ Importantly, the legal process includes the right of an individual subject to proceedings under the 2003 Act to oppose extradition in the courts - it is important that @scotgov says nothing to prejudice the integrity of that process.
