Catalonia Marches by the Hundreds of Thousands for Independence:

One and half million people marched in Barcelona for independence according to police. Organizers put the crowd at two million. Broad avenues were filled end to end with people, Catalan flags were everywhere and of each kind, the more liberal one with the white star, the left-wing one with the red star. It was an historic day. Previously, such masses had been mobilized but for sovereigntist claims rather than a demand by organizers for outright succession from Spain. At one point, protesters hung a “Spanish Embassy” sign on the delegation of the national government of Spain.

Even the traffic lights were yellow on this day:

The streets of Barcelona singing the Catalan national anthem “Els Segadors” and chanting for independence:

The protests for independence even went on while people were waiting for the metro:

After this mass protest, there’s a certain inevitability about Catalonia’s pursuit for independence. But with Spain in a deep crisis and needing wealthy Catalonia’s tax revenue, I fear that a show down with Spanish Nationalism is unavoidable.
