Commonspace Forum: Where Now for Catalan Independence?

  • Screening Room G04 50 George Square University of Edinburgh EH8 9JU (map)

On the day former Catalan Education Minister Clara Ponsati begins a trial in Edinburgh over an attempt by Spain to extradite her on charges which include the ancient law of Treason for her part in the Catalan independence referendum, digital media site CommonSpace hosts a forum to discuss where now for the Catalan independence movement:

- How does the new Spanish Government change the situation?

- Will the political prisoners and those extradited be released?

- What should the Catalan independence movement learn from the experience of last year's referendum?

George Kerevan, former SNP MP and co-author of Catalonia Reborn
Chris Bambery, author of A People's History of Scotland and Catalonia Reborn
Joanna Cherry, SNP MP for Edinburgh South West.
Elisenda Paluzie, President of the Catalan National Assembly.
