Barcelona—Parlament de Catalunya

This afternoon, Carles Puigdemont, the Catalan President, will announce his plan for the wealthy region’s future.

In the wake of the controversial referendum that has split Catalans, he’s expected to either declare a unilateral declaration of independence or some sort of smooth secession from Spain.

In the October 1st plebiscite, 90% of participants voted for independence.  But the turnout was just 43%.   The vote was declared illegal by the national government in Madrid and condemned by European countries.
