    I took part in the protest to let Catalonia have independent I took part while I was in Barcelona. I agree with them because they have a right to have independents.

    If the Catalonia vote is lost, do you think it would cause a civil war? Why?

    I think that they should be independent because they want to be a free country and live free and speak there own language also they should have the free will to make sure they can stop Spain to make them stay together forever

    I think Catalonia have a right to be independent. If they want freedom they should get it! Everyone has a right to be free and it seems to me like Russia all over again, only this time, people are taking action.

    Me and my club classmates had the chance to ask a few questions to our art teacher, who is from Catalonia, and she answered our questions in her opinion. Here are a few questions I would like to ask:

    1. Do you think the vote for independence should be illegal? Why?

    2. The Spanish Government didn’t want Catalonia to leave because they get most of the money from there, do you think there are any other reasons why the Spanish government doesn’t want Catalonia to leave?

    3. Do you think the people who voted for independence deserved to be hit, injured and arrested?

    Those are all my questions and I still think the vote shouldn’t of been illegal.

  26. St Peter's Primary School St Peter's Primary School

    Hi,
    My questions are:
    Do you think maybe Catalonia has offended Spain in some sort of way so Spain is taking the wrong actions at Catalonia?
    Do the majority of Spain want Catalonia to stay, what about the president?
    Thanks,
    Bubblequeen:)

  27. St Peter's Primary School St Peter's Primary School

    i dont know because im just worried about their response if we get invloved

  28. Colegrave Primary School Colegrave Primary School

    does Spain really care about Catalonia?
    does Spain actually want Catalonia to be independent ?
    this shows that Spain should be careful with there actions and be careful about how they treat other parts of the world the way they would like to be treated #Missfluffypants

  29. If Catalonia does become independent, do you think that would be fair? Only 2.26 Catalans out of 7.523 voted in the referendum. 90% of voters wanted to leave Spain. What about the other 5 million citizens?

  36. How do you think Catalonia will cope if they ever become independent? Looking back at their history, they have never fully been independent.

  37. If Catalonia were to leave Spain maps and atlas’ would have to change and the world would be heavily impacted, therefore how many years do you think it would take for the world to adjust every thing to be correct?

    If Spain and Catalonia were to separate, what problems would be created?

  39. St Saviour's & St Olave's School St Saviour's & St Olave's School

    If Catalonia wants to leave Spain, why doesn’t Spain give them a little more freedom for a little while to see how they adjust? Then later they could see if they really want to leave.
