Watch and Wonder: Independence Campaigners in Wales May Copy Catalan Vote…(Go Wales!!)

As separatist leaders vow to press ahead with Catalonia’s controversial independence vote in defiance of Spain’s central government, counterparts in Wales now believe it could become the perfect platform for them to spring a similar move there.

Independence campaigners in Wales have been watching intently developments surrounding the Catalan crisis where separatists plan to stage a referendum on independence on Sunday, October 1, despite it being outlawed by Madrid — and now remain convinced an identical vote could be replicated in their country.

While there is no official mandate yet for an independence referendum on whether Wales should leave the UK, unlike the one staged in Scotland in 2014, YesCymru insist there is now a growing groundswell of opinion backing the call.

Iestyn ap Rhobert, chairperson of YesCymru, says he is “absolutely certain” Wales has what it takes to go for its own independence, having been inspired by the energy and drive witnessed in Catalonia.

“I am absolutely certain of this, Wales has what it takes to go for its own independence,” Mr. Rhobert tells Sputnik.
