Abstract

On Catalonia’s national day, which they call “Diada”, hundreds of thousands of Catalans formed a huge “V” in the streets of Barcelona to demand a referendum on independence. On Thursday, no doubt emboldened to some extent by events in Scotland, this variously stood for “vote”, “victory” and “will”. In the usual crowd-counting battle, Barcelona police estimated that as many as 1.8m took part, while the Spanish central government put the figure at around half a million.
