Really, more of a declaration of attempted theft. If territories within a countries borders, what is the point of forming a country?
If you rent or lease out a house, can the tenants declare independence and seize your house? Can individuals living in Catalonia continue the process until every single property is its own country?
Rhetorical questions. Decide if it's war or a criminal conspiracy, then act accordingly.

Proven technique, but perhaps could be judged as "too light-handed" for the current situation? The probable majority in Catalonia who don't want their region destroyed need to see a strong signal from the "presumed competent government" that they are indeed that.
