What’s the latest on Catalonian Independence? Get all the details here. This is episode fifty-two of The LAVA Spurt, Catalonia Update.

Things have been really heating up in Spain over the independence referendum passed by Catalonia’s people nearly a month ago.

Instead, he asked to negotiate with the Spanish central government “to arrive at an agreed solution to advance with the demands of the people of Catalonia” before demanding independence.
