Catalan Independence vs Spain Dominance?http://www.catalannewsagency.com/ is our most frequently checked source. It is updated daily. Spanish regulators restrict what may be posted. Other news outlets will report significant changes. We've gone through arrests, two disrupted elections and arrests of any leader supporting independence. Spain has refused to negotiate, prefering to arrest any opponents. That has not changed. Spanish control and dominance is the only response.
