Independence movements


The subject is getting current in various places.

Catalonia is about to vote.
Iraqi Kurdistan plans the same.
Biafra has come up, with 50 anniversary of the failed independence war.
Plus Scotland and so on...

I expect there to be news about these in the future.



Note: It was my intention to write wider commentary on the issue, but I got interrupted and... I'll get to sooner or later.

For now, feel free to post on this topic any related news, comments or opinions.

Re: Independence movements


Things are firing up. Spanish police has arrested number of Catalonian officials and is physically stopping the planned independence referendum happening, based on supreme court decision that it would be illegal.
Protestors are on streets.


Meanwhile in Iraq, planned Kurdistan independence vote has been protested by various countries, most strongly (aside Iraq itself) Turkey (due government's long conflict with their own Kurdish population) and Iran who have threatened to invade Kurdistan if they try to declare independent.


This is not going to be pretty...
