Catalonia Independence Referendum Explained

Catalonia is an autonomous community of Spain that has been in the news recently after it held an independence referendum on the 1st of October, despite being ruled illegal by the Spanish courts. 4 weeks later, Catalan unilaterally declared their independence from Spain.

In this video I attempt to explain the situation, by first looking at the history of Catalonia and how it became part of Spain, including its modern history and independence movement, right up until the present day. I look at what would an independent Catalonia look like.
