Free Catalonia!

Do whatever it takes.

Free yourselves from the oppressive regime in Madrid.

Long live Catalonia.

"There are more of us Catalan Spaniards than separatists.

A poll in July showed backing for secession at its lowest level in two years, with 48.3% of people against and 44% in favor.

A majority oppose separation. Separation could be harmful to Spain, and also to the EU. Which country benefits most from weakening the EU while the Eurasian Economic Union continues expanding..

A majority oppose separation. 

That depends on the geographic area in the which the poll was taken.

The polls are skewed because they include non-Catalan areas into the poll to inflate the numbers.

All the Catalans are asking for is a free and fair vote within their territory and their territory only.

They deserve the right to self-determination and obviously from the huge protests we can see that they want it.

@burningbush The polls are skewed because they include non-Catalan areas into the poll to inflate the numbers.

I just did a quick search on Yandex, but couldn't find anything about how the polls were skewed. With your contacts in internet research agencies, perhaps you could you provide a link.
