Friday, October 27th the senate will vote to approve Article 155, which will allow the central government to assume complete control over the Catalan government.
Today is the day that everything is decided.
In my opinion, if Catalan does not declare Independence today then it won’t happen.
Since the Catalan party members are on their way out, it is the last chance to make a big move by declaring Independence. Unfortunately, it looks like checkmate by the central government.
Either way, I expect that all of the Independence speculation will end today.
