Description

When Scotland voted not to split off from Great Britain, a wave of disappointment reached well beyond the Highlands. A thousand miles away, in Barcelona, Spain, Arnau Percerisa’s heart sank as he stared at his phone. 

“It would have been great if they’d won. It would have been a big moral boost, a ray of joy,” he says. As a passionate Catalan independence supporter, this 29-year-old hoped Scotland’s example would help pave the way. But he still has hopes. “The social consensus here is much larger, and even if Scotland’s decision discourages some, we still have a big enough majority in favor of independence.”
