Dimitrios Papadimoulis, Vice-President of the European Parliament, MEP from GUE/NGL Group:
Catalonians and the central Spanish government should find the balance, as unilateral moves are just deepening the crisis
Maria Koleva, Brussels
I think it is important to stop the escalation and to start a dialogue between Madrid and Barcelona. It is impossible to solve the political problems by sending police with rubber bullets and with judges. The political problems need a political solution. And compromises should be made with mutual dimensions.
