Barcelona president admits club could quit La Liga

Gerard Pique in tears

King Felipe of Spain denounced the Catalan government for destabilizing the country as the leader of the regional government repeated his intention to declare independence within days.

"But to that I'm sure that the Catalan government will respond that there is nothing to talk about in those terms", he added. He's the co-author of an article in The Nation headlined "Have Spain and Catalonia Reached a Point of No Return?"

"What I find harder to understand is this indifference, or absolute lack of interest, in understanding what is happening here", he said.

Many people in Catalonia who opposed independence said they would not vote in the referendum, which they denounced as a sham.

Gerard Figueras, the Catalan sports minister, recently claimed that Barca, as well as Espanyol and Girona, would have the option of changing leagues if they felt a need to.

Protest rallies are also taking place in other major cities and towns of the north-eastern autonomous region.

"We are going to declare independence 48 hours after all the official votes have been counted", he told the BBC Tuesday evening.

Trapero heads a 17,000-strong Catalan police, which the Spanish government is accusing of not cracking down on voters during the referendum polls. It's obvious that we need mediation'. I want to speak directly to all of the Spanish people.

On Tuesday, workers' unions held strikes and 700,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Barcelona, AP reports. "The resolve of regional officials in Catalonia to announce independence from Spain has caught markets off-guard". But turnout stood at 42 per cent.

People take part in a demonstration two days after the banned independence referendum in Barcelona, Spain October 3, 2017.

Spain's Caixabank, Catalonia's largest lender, and ministers reassured bank customers that their deposits are secure from the growing crisis.

Barcelona and its members would have to decide, which soccer league to play in if Catalonia gained independence from Spain, club president Josep Maria Bartomeu said on Monday.

Clashes between police and voters were recorded on video, showing some police beating citizens with rubber truncheons and dragging them by their hair.
