Pro-independence citizens hold up giant letters reading “We are ready, Independence” during the final meeting before the 9N consultation, in Barcelona

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.
