About "The Catastrophe of Catalonia"
In a time when national lines are fairly cut and dry, and the geopolitical landscape is stable, one region of Spain is trying to change that. Located in the northeastern part of Spain, the region of Catalonia seeks its independence from Spain.
It claims that it should possess its independence on the grounds of long-seated cultural differences being suppressed by the national government of Spain, broken autonomy agreements, and not wanting to prop up an increasingly dwindling Spanish economy with little economic support in return. Many in the international community have supported this claim, saying it preserves democracy and the right to self-determination. However, the popular support, despite claims, is simply not present, which makes a current independent Catalonia suppressive of democracy and the true needs of its people.
Therefore, we deny Resolved: Spain should grant Catalonia its independence.
