We show that we can unify the gravitational and internal gauge interactions in a high dimensional Riemann-Cartan spacetime in the spirit of Kaluza-Klein, if we identify some of the connection coefficients as Yang-Mills potentials and if the dynamics of the spacetime is governed by the Poincaré gauge theory of gravitation whose lagrangian contains curvature and torsion squared.
