On the Catalan National Day, September 11, Spanish politics suffered a huge
shock: up to 2 million people -- more than a quarter of the population of
Catalonia -- marched through the streets of Barcelona shouting one word,
"independencia".

It was a moment when countless Catalans (those from the four provinces that
make up Catalonia in Spain's north-east) discovered that others felt the
way they did -- it is time to drop Spain for a state of our own.

Another great article by Dick Nichols on the huge march for Catalan
independence -- largest march in Barcelona's history.
