      With the passion over Catalan independence having apparently cooled off, Madrid is taking precautions to ensure things stay that way. The Spanish government has introduced an unusual ban in Barcelona - targeting the city's fountains.

      The Spanish government has stripped Catalonia of its autonomy and taken charge of its government.
      The measures came early on Saturday after the Catalan parliament voted to declare independence on Friday.
      An official state bulletin dismissed Catalan leaders and handed control of Catalonia to Spain's Deputy Prime Minister, Soraya Saenz de Santamaria.
      Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has called for "democratic opposition" to the takeover.
      He made the call in a TV address broadcast from an undisclosed location.
      Earlier, Spain's interior ministry took charge of Catalonia's police after firing senior Catalan police officials.
      On Friday, PM Mariano Rajoy announced the dissolution of the regional parliament and the removal of the Catalan leader, and called snap local elections.
      Demonstrations for and against independence went on into the night. A large rally "for the unity of Spain and the constitution" is being held in Madrid.

      ÚLTIMAS NOTICIAS | Ningún Testigo resultó herido en el ataque terrorista de Barcelona
      En la tarde del jueves 17 de agosto de 2017, una furgoneta atropelló a una multitud en Barcelona. Al menos 13 personas perdieron la vida. Según los informes de la sucursal de España, hasta el momento ningún Testigo se ha visto directamente perjudicado por el ataque. Los ancianos de las congregaciones locales han hecho planes para visitar a los hermanos a fin de animarlos, consolarlos e instarlos a ejercer cautela y a seguir las instrucciones de las autoridades.

      El autor del atentado de Las Ramblas de Barcelona es uno de los cinco terroristas abatidos en el ataque de Cambrils en la madrugada del viernes, según han confirmado fuentes de la investigación a las que ha tenido acceso La Vanguardia.
      Asimismo, contrariamente a lo que se pensaba hasta ahora, Moussa Oukabir no es el conductor de la furgoneta que dejó un saldo de 13 muertos y un centenar de heridos en Barcelona. El joven se encuentra en paradero desconocido.

It’s a three day programme, which will be presented to over 13 million Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide.
      Christina Cortes asked overseer, Manolo Gatt, about the message of this convention: “Don’t Give Up”.

      Remember a few years ago Watchtower literally 'siezed' all individual congregation bank savings around the world above what was needed to cover basic kingdom hall monthly expenses? 
      A new March 30, 2017, BOE letter has just gone out to congregations in Spain, which, more or less, explains that congregations bank account funds no longer entitle congregations to reduced banking fees. (See copy of actual paragraph below.)

      The letter asks "What is the cause?" Note that the very next sentence does not actually answer the question but rather makes a general comment on what the reader already knows about the world of finance. It says "As you know, sitnificant changes have taken place in the overall financial situation." It does not explain what these changes are. It could be anything. The rest of the letter explains that 1,900 individual congregational bank acoounts, which were drained of funds, no longer qualify for zero or low fees.
      As if the JWs in Spain don't have enough problems as it is.

      Jehovah's Witnesses asked to hide a one-million-euro entrepreneurial hole at a Northern Spain supply firm. The cult appealed to the "peace" of the congregation to pressure the co-owners of the firm and prevent them from reporting the case to ordinary justice.
      The case concerns a well-known construction supplies company based in a large northern city. The company, founded in 1975, belongs to a family that has been a member of the Witnesses since it was born.
      When one of the parents died in 2014, one of the daughters inherited a share in society. The rest of the capital remained in the hands of his relatives.
      "ONE MILLION EUROS"
      When the citizen received the shareholding inheritance, she discovered a remarkable puff in the firm in what seemed a solvent company, according to the documents to which this newspaper has been able to access.
      According to the documents in the hands of several congregations of Witnesses in the northern area, the partner would have discovered the suspicious sale of an industrial warehouse and diversion of funds.
      Likewise, the creation of a very similar company with a similar name emerged, a redirected web portal and an identical telephone. With this stratagem, the parallel merchant would have taken the goodwill, the merchandise and the clientele.
      The complainant estimates that the loss caused by the alleged unfair administration totals one million euros, 400,000 euros in diverted funds and 600,000 in goods transferred to society B.
      THE WITNESSES SUGGEST TO BE SILENT
      As a Jehovah's Witness by birth, the neighbor came to the internal justice of the millenarian cult. Its first complaint of 2014, to which this newspaper was able to accede, suggested that its partners had committed fraud, unfair competition and irregular administration.
      The response of the head office of the denomination in Spanish Bethel was very clear. "We want to encourage you to apply the biblical principles in all your decisions and not to be carried away by the emotions," says the letter.
      SECOND COMPLAINT
      Not content with the answer, the affected ones took another step. They sent an official letter to the headquarters of the Witnesses in which they insisted on indications of fraud. In addition, they called for the creation of an internal committee to investigate what happened.
      Again, the leadership of the cult responded ( letter enclosed ) calling on the family to avoid ordinary justice. "Is the money and the rights, or the peace and family unity of the congregation more important to us?" asks a passage from the response letter.
      "We are sure," continues the letter, "that as Christians who wish to do things in Jehovah 's way you will strive to follow these and other advice."
      PRESSURES
      In the rest of the documentation, the affected people emphasize the pressures received.
      As the documents read, the businesswoman is affiliated with the denomination's internal justice administration circuit that has been relentless with her even though she would have delivered money to the family society when she needed it.
      According to the latest communication with Spanish Bethel, the citizen has now turned to the Witnesses legal department at the world headquarters in the United States to try to reopen the investigation.

      Endesa Energia S.A.U. is the largest electricity supplier in Spain and the second largest operator in Portugal. It is a subsidiary of Enel Group. It has more than 10,000 employees serving more than 11 million customers.
      According to a strictly confidential letter recently leaked, the Spanish Branch of Jehovah’s Witnesses, based in Madrid, has signed a global contract with Spanish energy provider, ENDESA ENERGÍA, S.A.U. to supply power to all of their kingdom halls and assembly halls.
      The purpose of transferring all of their power needs to one single power supplier is to avail of “very competitive rates”.
      For all congregations and assembly halls that already have power supply contracts with Endesa in the name of Testigos Cristianos de Jehová, their rates will be reduced automatically. For congregations with alternative names, or for congregations who receive power from other companies, they are “encouraged to follow the published instructions” on jw.org to change their name  to Testigos Cristianos de Jehová and/or their supplier to Endesa.
      As you may understand, the details of this agreement are strictly confidential. For this reason we encourage you not to share them with others. Thank you very much for your discreetness and kind collaboration in this matter.

      Europa Press reports that AbusosTJ (JW Abuses),  an activist group in Spain, plans to file a legal complaint against the Watchtower offices in Spain for refusing to release internal documents, files and other evidence involving dozens of child abuse cases within the Jehovah’s Witness religion.
      -------------------------------------
       

      Jehovah’s Witness Members Will Report the (Watchtower) Organization for Failing to Provide Them with documents Regarding Child Abuse
      By EUROPA PRESS / Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content.
      MADRID | 1/16/2017 – 3:00 p.m.
      [Revised Translation of Original Report]
      The AbusosTJ [JW Abuses] group, which represents ex-members of Jehovah’s Witnesses who report cases of sexual abuse in congregations, will file a complaint against the entity for not providing them with documents on cases of abuse that they requested and which [include] envelopes and secret files. According to them, in Spain they have been contacted by “dozens” of victims.
      The members of this collective [group], Miguel García López and Israel Florez, went to the national headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Ajalvir (Madrid) on Monday, January 16, [2016] after having requested through a Burofax with certified content [sent] to the president of the National Board of Directors of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Spain [requesting] the delivery of “all the secret documents that the religion keeps on their cases of abuse of minors.”
      The group has indicated that they have received a negative response to their request and that they have not been approached by any executive or ecclesiastical officer of the religion, so they have informed the receptionist that they will file a complaint.
      Members of TJ Abuses call for “redress and justice,” the change of all “secret” protocols imposed by the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and a clear indication to local elders that Police or Civil Guard [will be notified of] any evidence of child abuse.
      Last December, the group wrote an open letter to the National Board of Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Watch Tower Bible [and Tract Society] in Brooklyn, New York, the legal entity that supports the work, where they complained that congregations hide sexual abuse and [they] demand justice.
      “To the demands in the United States will continue our commitment and defense of the rights of the children, in all the instances, and by [any] means of communication throughout Europe. Nothing will stop us in our personal commitment to achieving without hate or grudge, reparation and justice for ALL victims of child abuse within the cult of the Watch Tower,” the letter said.
      Specifically, they complained that when a member of Jehovah’s Witnesses is accused of sexual abuse, congregations have “secret” courts with internal rules that judge [the] cases and “silence the victims.” As they say, “thousands of children” have been victims.

      La Escuela de Ancianos 2017 enseñará a los pastores del culto a lidiar con las denuncias de agresiones sexuales

      Salón de Asambleas de los Testigos en Sant Quirze (Barcelona), donde se realizarán los cursos / CG
      Los pastores de los Testigos de Jehová pasarán un curso antiabusos de menores. La Escuela de Ancianos 2017 arranca el próximo lunes en el Salón de Asambleas de Sant Quirze del Vallès (Barcelona) con el fin de enseñar a los ancianos, las personas que dirigen una congregación, a lidiar con las presuntas agresiones sexuales a menores de edad. Las sesiones diseminarán las instrucciones que envió la central de los Testigos en Reino Unido sobre delitos de tipo sexual con niños en el seno de la denominación, cuya publicación avanzó Crónica Global.
      Las directrices, que soslayan las denuncias directas a las fuerzas de seguridad e invitan a resolver los casos internamente, llegarán ahora a España. Lo harán mediante las Escuelas de Ancianos, a las que se asistirá previa invitación.
      PERIODISTAS, NO
      El clinic del culto milenarista no será abierto. La cúpula de la denominación advierte que no se permitirá la entrada a periodistas ni miembros de base, los llamados publicadores.
      Los ancianos locales que sí puedan entrar al Salón escucharán a instructores designados por la sede nacional de los Testigos de Jehová. Dichos profesores serán en su mayoría superintendentes de circuito o miembros de la sede nacional y su cometido será el de transmitir la reformada política de protección a la infancia del grupo religioso, que en España cuenta con más de 111.000 seguidores.
      Antes, los asistentes deberán mostrar sus invitaciones y acreditaciones en la puerta para evitar intrusiones no deseadas en las sesiones formativas.
      COMUNICACIÓN INTERNA
      Cabe recordar que la nueva política de protección del menor de los Testigos, comunicada el 1 de enero por la sede central de Londres, introduce algunos cambios en los procedimientos de instrucción de estos casos.
      La cúpula de la denominación pide ahora que dos ancianos comuniquen inmediatamente al departamento legal cualquier caso o denuncia de abuso en el seno del culto. Por su parte, las sedes centrales de cada país apoyarán a las congregaciones donde ocurran presuntos episodios de agresión sexual a un menor.
      La denuncia a las fuerzas de seguridad, no obstante, no se cita en el memorándum enviado a los grupos de las Islas Británicas. Sólo se menciona en el caso de que el menor corra peligro o reserva este derecho a los padres, si éstos lo ven pertinente, o al departamento legal de los testigos.
      ABUSOS EN ESPAÑA
      La escuela de invierno de los Testigos se celebrará de lunes a viernes en Sant Quirze del Vallès. Las sesiones coincidirán con nuevas acciones de la campaña del grupo AbusosTJ, un colectivo de personas que da cobertura y apoyo a antiguos miembros del culto que han denunciado abusos sexuales en congregaciones en España.
      El grupo ciudadano ha pedido amparo a la Comisión de Justicia del Congreso de Diputados, ha abierto un teléfono de ayuda y resolución de dudas y ha exigido a la sede nacional de los Testigos en Ajalvir (Madrid) que desclasifique y entregue los expedientes de sus casos, ya que el procedimiento del grupo religioso obliga a anotar y guardar los documentos de las investigaciones internas.
