SNP urges Spain to 'respect' Catalan vote

"There are thousands of men and women coming from all corners of Spain, even from Peru, to tell the Catalans that they are not alone, that we are with them, that we are going to fight together for freedom", he added.

However, SNP MEP Alyn Smith urged caution and said a declaration of independence from Catalonia would not help its cause at the moment, and that the Catalan and Spanish governments urgently need to open up a dialogue.

Hundreds of thousands of them took to the streets of Barcelona yesterday in protest at the Catalan Government's plan to announce an imminent secession from Spain.

Puigdemont said he had not been in contact with the Madrid government for some time because Spain refused to discuss independence.

The stakes are high for both Spain and Europe if Catalonia chooses to break away.

Asked if she would like to see the Scottish government recognise a declaration of independence from Catalonia, Sandra White MSP, who was in Catalonia as an global observer of the referendum, told BuzzFeed News on Monday: "I'd like to see it, absolutely". Loiseau said the crisis following the 1 October referendum had to be resolved through dialogue within Spain.

On Monday morning, Spain's deputy prime minister, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, said the government would act if Catalan government declared independence.

"There are millions of people who have voted, who want to decide".

In an interview with German newspaper Die Welt this morning, the Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy insisted the country would not be divided.

He also says that moves by banks and multinationals during the past week to relocate their base outside of Catalonia because of the political uncertainty are "absolutely shameful" and a "blackmail to the decision of the Catalan people".

France were off to a flying start as a flowing team move ended with Antoine Griezmann teeing up Matuidi to blast home from a tight angle on three minutes.

Catalan President Carles Puigdemont is expected to address the regional parliament on Tuesday after Spain's Constitutional Court earlier suspended the Catalan parliament session that had been planned for Monday. Recent polls had indicated that Catalans are split on independence, though leaders said police violence during the referendum turned many against the state authorities.

The region, home to 7.5 million people with their own language and cultural traditions, accounts for a fifth of Spain's economy.

Three of the four main parties in the Spanish parliament have clearly stated their support for whatever the Spanish government needs to do to maintain law in the face of the declaration, which could mean suspending the region's autonomy.

Many in the crowd marched through the city center under the slogan of "Let's recover our common sense!" carrying Spanish, Catalan, and the European Union flags.
