*Antonio Baños*, journalist and author of *The Catalan Rebellion*, was the
lead candidate for the anti-capitalist left nationalist People's Unity
Candidacies—Constituent Call (CUP) in the September 27 Catalan elections.
The CUP scored a major success at the poll, increasing it presence from
three seats to ten in the 135-seat Catalan parliament (for further
analysis, see here) <http://links.org.au/node/4583>.

Presently involved in negotiations with the the winning pro-independence
ticket Together For Yes, Baños outlines the CUP's view of the present stage
of the Catalan independence process.  Below is the text of an October 2
interview on the Catalan web site Vilaweb.1
