A view from Catalonia on their independence vote

November 11, 2014

As most will have noticed an informal vote on independence for Catalonia was held over the weekend which has showed more than 80% in favour. The non-binding vote went ahead after Spain’s constitutional court ruled out holding a formal referendum in the autonomous north-eastern region.

Catalan leader Artur Mas hailed the poll “a great success” that should pave the way for a formal referendum.

A Catalan independence supporter wrote to us yesterday:

 Over 2.300.000 votes. For having been an ‘illegal’ consutation defying Madrid’s prohibition it wasn’t that bad, was it? 😉 People flew many miles to vote, drove and did all they could to do it. It started with people voting in Sydney,… There are people who are still voting today.
 
It was such a touching day!, long queues, old people crying,…

This is an article from a British writer who’s been líving here for many years. I hope you like it.
