Companies relocate HQs in Catalonia over fears of independence

Catalonia- French minister calls for stronger EU to stop independence

Spanish police, ordered to prevent the referendum, clashed with voters and supporters, and Catalan officials said over 900 people were injured.

Meanwhile, the regional president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, announced he would appear in the regional parliament on Tuesday to explain the political situation.

(Vatican Radio) Hundreds of thousands of people have rallied in downtown Barcelona to protest against plans of Catalonia's regional government to break away from Spain.

Some 300 people demonstrate with Catalan pro-independence "estelada" flags in front of the Spanish Consulate in Perpignan in France.

"In my opinion it is more important to reach a real independent country than to declare independence", he said. "I believe we know what Spaniards think, and they should know that the government too is clear about what it has to do". "This crisis needs to be resolved through dialogue at all levels of Spanish politics", France's European affairs minister Nathalie Loiseau said.

Messi, Argentina on verge of World Cup catastrophe
The reigning Copa America champions rose to third in the standings while Ecuador were left out of contention for a World Cup spot. If they draw, they are out if both Argentina and Paraguay win. "I remain confident we'll be in the World Cup", he said.

No one seems eager to recognize Catalonia, including the European Union.

A Catalan Parliament spokesperson told CNN that a new session had been called for Tuesday at 6 p.m. (12:00 p.m. ET), in which Puigdemont is expected to update members on the "current political situation".

Joanna Cherry, who along with Chapman and a number of others was in Barcelona for the referendum as part of a 35-nation cross-party delegation, also spoke in favour of the resolution, saying: "What I witnessed was a quiet and dignified determination to vote in the face of considerable interference".

And France said that Catalan independence would not receive worldwide recognition.

The Spanish government will try to cause the "least possible damage" in connection with Catalonia's unilateral decision on independence, but will act to restore law in the region.

Kowalski adds that he wouldn't be surprised if the show was messing with its viewers, and sauce actually doesn't taste very good. Szechuan sauce will be available at McDonald's in limited quantities starting at 2 p.m., so once they're out, they're out.

On the eve of the rally, Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy issued a stern warning to Catalan leaders who have said they could declare independence this week.

Spain's Prime Minister has warned that he will not rule out imposing direct rule on Catalonia if its government continues to threaten to declare independence.

Ever since Spain's return to democracy in the 1970s, Madrid has struggled to balance the country's patchwork of regional identities, including its decades-long fight to quell separatism in the northern Basque Country led by violent militants ETA.

"What is happening in Catalonia is real, whether they like it or not".

Puigdemont hinted in an interview on Sunday that the region would go ahead with the declaration if Madrid continued to refuse dialogue. Millions of people have voted, who want to decide.
