Confiscated vote? Escalation over banned Catalonia referendum


 

Authorities in Madrid have taken their standoff with Barcelona to a whole new level, raiding government offices, arresting Catalan cabinet members, confiscating 10 million ballot papers, all to thwart a banned October 1st independence referendum. It’s hard to see at this point how the vote can happen. Has Madrid won the battle but lost the PR war? We’ll question the reasons for a second attempt. And if Catalans really want independence, why has the reaction been so much stronger this time?
