Spain Should Let Catalonia Vote | Jennifer Maffessanti

Spain Should Let Catalonia Vote | Jennifer Maffessanti | REPUBLIC OF CATALONIA TIMES | Scoop.it
In the past three years, we’ve seen two separate votes for the independence of one nation from another political body. First, in 2014, was the vote for Scottish independence from Great Britain, which failed to pass. Then, in 2016, came Brexit where Great Britain voted to withdraw from the European Union. We might yet see a third vote for independence on October 1 of this year.
