“On the afternoon of Friday 27 October 2017, at 3.25pm, in the salmon pink Palau del Parlament in the heart of Barcelona’s Citadel Park, the Second Catalan Republic was born”
Why do most people in Catalonia want independence from Spain? What is the history behind Catalonia’s struggle for independence? Is it likely to be so again? And why has the Spanish government employed such Draconian measure to prevent the possibility of Catalonian independence.
This book brings clarity, insight and explanation to the political climate, both past and present, in Catalonia and the tumultuous events that have led to the present day.
