ON THE day former Catalan Education Minister Clara Ponsati begins a trial in Edinburgh over an attempt by Spain to extradite her on charges which include the ancient law of Treason for her part in the Catalan independence referendum, CommonSpace hosts a forum to discuss where now for the Catalan independence movement:

- How does the new Spanish Government change the situation?

- Will the political prisoners and those extradited be released?

- What should the Catalan independence movement learn from the experience of last year's referendum?
