Catalans for Yes ask Nicola Sturgeon to support independence referendum
Spanish constitutional court has suspended the Catalan referendum deeming it “illegal”
A PRO-INDEPENDENCE group in Catalonia has asked First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to support the planned referendum in the region.
Catalans for Yes (CfY) wrote to the first minister after Spain denounced the vote scheduled for 1 October as “illegal”.
The Catalan regional government passed a motion to hold the referendum next month and claims the vote will allow it to declare independence from Spain within 48 hours - should Yes vote be returned.
