As Martin Armstrong notes, demonstrators were waving independence flags and wearing yellow-and-red shirts with the phrase "Now is the time" shouting "Independencia!" as they swarmed into the semiautonomous area in northeastern Spain that hails Barcelona as its capital.
What is clear, we are seeing the beginning stages of what we have warned about – the rise of civil unrest that leaded to nations dividing or being overthrown in revolutions. What has taken place in Scotland is by no means going unnoticed.
"Independence, independence", has been the new cry of the people today in Spain in the center of the Catalan capital. Two main roads that converge at a place filled over a distance of seven miles with people. Here, a "V" for "Victoria" (Victory) was formed. The amount of protesters is very impressive and the police have been gearing up for this because they know what is coming.
