'(Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of Catalans packed the streets of Barcelona on Thursday to demand the right to vote on a potential split from Spain, their ambitions boosted by an independence referendum scheduled for next week in Scotland.

Participants dressed in red and yellow, the colors of the Catalan flag, and lined up along two of Barcelona's main arteries to form a huge "V" for "vote", visible in aerial footage.

Many wore T-shirts saying "Ara es l'hora" ("Now is the time") in the Catalan language, in a festive atmosphere on Catalonia's national day.

The potential turnout had been an issue of heated public debate in recent weeks. Barcelona police estimated that as many as 1.8 million took part, while a central government spokeswoman put the figure at around half a million.

Catalonia is a wealthy region in Spain's northeast with its own language and culture. Its long-standing independence movement has grown over the last decade, fueled by Spain's economic crisis and a refusal by Madrid to meet regional demands.'

Will they take the bad bank with them?

Reason why Scotland will not be a shoe-in to the EU as it thinks it will. Catalonia, Pandania, Belgium. etc.

I'm suprised the EU bodies are not actively involved in the No campaign.

But then the EU have more existential issues on at the mo.

Catalonia depends on vast subsidies from Spain. Another case of delusional separatist loonies kicking us up endless stink, most of the Spanish are sick to death of them.

Not just that, but they received vast infrastructure and industries under Franco to keep them sweet so have a disproportionate amount of manufacturing and other industry in the region.

They probably realise all the MSM and big crony capitalist companies in Britain being against it is enough blatant propaganda.
