About 1.6 million Catalans linked arms to form the Via Catalana, a 400
kilometre human chain demanding a referendum on independence for their
country, to mark Catalonia’s national day (the Diada) on September 11.

minority Convergence and Union (CiU) government to speed up plans to fix a
date and question for a 2014 referendum on independence.
