This American anarchist analysis of the Catalan referendum from ‘Final Straw’ radio sheds useful light on the situation from a left perspective. Although some of it is background – it is an insight into the factions and tensions within the democracy movement, the energy for more radical change, the organisation of non-violence and an analysis of Spanish state power.
It raises the question of starting a new state – and deeper change and challenges orthodoxy in the movement for Scottish self-determination.
