Why do most people in Catalonia want independence from Spain? What is the history behind Catalonia's struggle for independence? Has Catalonia ever been independent, and is it likely to be so again? With the news of the no-confidence vote that saw Mariano Rajoy ousted as President, and Clara Ponsatí's trial that has now been dropped, the events since the 'illegal' independence referendum have stormed our headlines.
Bringing clarity, insight and explanation to the political climate, both past and present in Catalonia, George Kerevan and Chris Bambery (authors of Catalonia Reborn: How Catalonia Took On the Corrupt Spanish State and the Legacy of Franco) explore the tumultuous events of October 2017 and all those that have led to the present day. They will discuss how Catalonian history brought us to this point, and where Catalonia can go next.
