When Catalonia pushed for independence from Spain in 2017, government leaders in Madrid did everything they could to stop it.
They declared the secession referendum illegal, and police blocked polling stations.
12 Catalan leaders who organised the vote have gone on trial in Madrid, in what their supporters are calling a 'show trial'.
Spain's Former Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is among 500 witnesses expected to testify live on TV over the next three months.
The leaders face up to 25 years in jail if convicted of rebellion, sedition, and misusing public funds.
Will divisions in Spain be widened?

Any person from any nation in the world who is willing to cheerfully support the supposed freedom of Catalonia should be prepared to assume that in their beloved nations will begin to appear processes of independence of some of their regions.
Juan Pablo Fernandez
Not to mix anybody up, the story of catalán nationalism isn't a story of love their own homeland, but it's the story of hatred to Spain.

The problem in Catalunya should carefully be followed by Europe and remaining developed countries. It has never been another country, it has never been oppressed, it has never been abused by Spain, as they try to show all world once and again.
Spain is one of the most decentralized countries in the world, and these recent years, incomprehensible, supremacism has reached one of the most developed zones of our country.
It has led to a fascism which decided that what belong to all of us, our country, was being splited because a small number of ‘selected’ citizens wanted to. That imposition is fascism, based in the wrong perception that they own what belongs to all of us.
Now they complain everywhere about law reacting to it. The acts commited, breaking our country in two, are very serious, and of course punished in our law, as it would in any developed country.
Now they call that oppression, when that is an insult to countries and people who suffer real oppression.
And to all spanish people.

Very biased report, I am very disaoppointed. They only interview pro-independent people, especially the guy in Strasbourg which is clearly a pro-independent Catalan. They forget to mention that the "Catalan independentist leaders" broke the law and the constitution by unilaterally declaring the independence of Catalonia against the majority of the Catalan people. And, by the way, in 2017 Baviera tried to organize an independence referendum in Germany and it was deemed illegal by the constitutional court of Germany. Well well...

This video is full of half truths. Its a pity.

1. Catalonia has never been an independent country.
2. In the last regional elections, the people of Catalonia gave the victory to “ciudadanos”, a political party that is against this independent nonsense.
3. The reason why some politicians in Catalonia are pushing for independence is because many are being investigated for corruption and want to remain outside of the Spanish judicial system.
4. The heads of the Catalonian independence movement have expressed racist comments against the people in Catalonia that prefer to speak Spanish.
5. The Spanish constitution, the supreme law of Spain, was voted and approved by Catalonia like it was voted and approved by the rest of the Spanish regions.

The truth is that some politicians in Catalonia are doing a great job in creating division, and they do so only for their own selfish and monetary focused agenda.

No matter how much money those gangsters spend in marketing trying to manipulate foreign opinion, this is Spain, a sovereign country ruled by law, and we will not allow those gangsters to break our homeland.

2019 is a great year to talk about Franco, certanly a better time than to talk about the dictatorships of Al Thani, Khamenei, Rouhani or Assad. It's funny to read all these ignorant comments about oppression in *Al-Jazeera* . 99% of the world population would love to 'suffer this oppression.'
Ernesto Loza
Cataluña is Spain!

Mr K
Cataolonia should be free again.

Right - - a political solution can only be a social solution.
HL Muench
Any people, possessing their historical homeland and voting for independence, should have that independence.
S Hussein
Spain is a progressive and largely tolerant country. A model country like Germany, Botswana, Canada and Costa Rica.
Some people will not be happy till they can divide every country. A world of 1000 countries. It's crazy.
They have rights, prosperity and protection in Spain that many people in the world would love to have.

CATALUÑA DID NOT PUSHED FOR INDEPENDENCE. LESS THAN 1/3 OF THE POPULATION DID & THE REST DIDN'T BUT THEY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY WERE HOPPING THE GOVERNMENT WAS GOING TO DO SOMETHING and they DIDN'T. THEY SAY THEY ARE 2MILLION IS A LIE. AND it CAN BE PROVED. THEY GOT THE NUMBERS FROM A FAKE ELECTION IN WHICH only them voted no one else did and THESE PEOPLE VOTED 2 AND 3 TIMES, RUSSIANS AND RUMANIANS AND MUSLIM WERE PAID 10 EUROS TO VOTE FOR THEM ILLEGALLY. WHEN SPANISH GOVERNMENT DID AN ELECTION THE MAJORITY NON-INDEPENDENT WON BY MUCH 31 -VS 37 non independents. BUT THEY GOVERN, AGAIN BECAUSE ALL THE RADICALS EXTREMIST GOT ALL TOGETHER AND THE CENTRAL PARTIES DIDNT

Dr. Ebele Ufondu sits with SaharaTV’s Rudolf Okonkwo to discuss her book, “The Land That Shivers,” which is based on current events in Nigeria, and shines a light on the adverse effects of corruption.

They also talked about why ‘Africans are unable to handle their problems,’ and why it's time that they begin to pay closer attention to their surroundings.

The book was released February 12.
