Scottish Independence Podcast 157 – Anna Arqué on Catalonia

anna-cv.jpgThe 157th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is the second time on the show for Anna Arqué. Anna has been a long-time campaigner for Catalan independence and also works for the International Commission of European Citizens.

I asked her about the preparations for the Independence Referendum they are about to have and also about the measures that the Spanish government is using to try and disrupt the process.

I also asked her how the people are reacting to some of these measures and what the outlook for the referendum is.

Hope you enjoy.
