A look at the Catalan independence referendumA look at the Catalan independence referendum
Catalonia have signed a declaration of independence but will wait to implement it to allow for talks with the government in Madrid. Last week a referendum was held where the a large majority of those who were able to vote voted for independence. The Spanish Government said the referendum was unconstitutional and Spanish police responded with violence in an attempt to stop it from going ahead. Some ballot boxes were confiscated and there was a global outcry against the actions of the police. Mahdis Azarmandi was there at the time and Lillian Hanly spoke with her about the day and the resulting consequences.
