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. >>>

Apparently, C's didn't have sufficient time to bring thousands of Spaniards from all over Spain to today's unionist protest in Barcelona, #Catalonia.
Protesters chant: "Puigdemont to prison, Puigdemont to prison!" 🤔
Unionist protesters have attacked a reporter from the Madrid public television Telemadrid thinking that he was reporting for the Catalan public television TV3.

#Assange lawyer Carlos Poveda: "We sent 2 letters to the Foreign Ministry of #Ecuador, one about 10 days ago, the other about 5 days ago... They haven't responded to us." #FreeAssange #Unity4J mundo.sputniknews.com/americalatina/…
Poveda said the letters "indicated precisely the concerns we have over withdrawal of nationality and asylum." So @Lenin Moreno is also planning to withdraw citizenship? He has to if he wants to legally evict #ASSANGE: #Ecuador's constitution protects citizens from extradition.
Poveda said #Assange's lawyers have been "keeping an eye on UK newspapers" and seeking to meet @Lenin Moreno "but at the moment there seems no possibility of doing so."

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

Catalanes, no, NO ESTAMOS SOLOS, la que está cada vez más sola y cuestionada en el mundo es España y su política represiva. He recopilado todas las criticas al estado español y apoyo a Cataluña en todo el mundo… abstenerse de leerlo fachas a caballo
Hilo muy largo 👇👇✌️✌️

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.
