Catalonia

Pro-independence citizens hold up giant letters reading "We are ready, Independence" during the final meeting before the 9N (November 9) consultation, in Barcelona November 7, 2014. Among those on stage are Omnium Cultural President Muriel Casals (2nd R) and Catalan National Assembly (ANC) President Carme Forcadell (C). Catalans are expected to turn out in droves on Sunday to make their strongest show of force to date for breaking away from the rest of Spain in a symbolic independence referendum. But the chances of a formal vote on Catalan autonomy remain slim - partly because regional authorities are themselves divided over how far to go.

Catalonia votes for independence. Spain will not allow it… why can Kosovo and Kuwait have freedom but not Catalonia and Kurdistan?

Not for them the strike of anger
The march of death, bullet and bomb
But march of peace, indent defiance,
Vote of intent of the democratic throng
But Spain, the imperialist still, wont have it
Though the Ctalans did not do things wrong…

We did, we gook guns and bombs and rebelled
Killed and marched and filled with hate
Until we won, and lost, then fought each other
Made a free and failed state
Left behind a rump within the Kingdom
Who fight each other to stalemate.

Catalonia! Will it in time be
What Guernica is to us today…
I hope not, hope they will be free…
We can but watch, and hope, or pray…
