Catalonia, the political crisis explained

I’ve decided to share some thoughts on the political crisis that’s going on here in Catalonia, related to the movement for the independence of this region, in a video.


Notes: Catalonia is definitely not a unique case, in Europe that are several other regions where some people would want to secede from their respective states: the Basque Country also from Spain, South Tyrol, Veneto and Lombardy from Italy, Scotland from the United Kingdom, Flanders and Wallonia in Belgium… certainly Catalonia is the most explosive case of the recent times, especially for the big wealth of this region.

An example of how Mariano Rajoy hammers on “legality” is in this press conference, while an example of the king Felipe doing the same thing is in this speech.
