On April 21st, with 201 days to go until November 9th, DiploCAT launched its new website, CataloniaVOTES.eu, in English, French and German, in order to explain the Catalan sovereignty process abroad. The site incorporates a calendar that counts down to the morning of November 9th, when the Catalan independence referendum is to be held, together with an ample collection of documentation and videos that explain the process, including one with the Catalan First Minister (President of the Generalitat) himself.
Understanding what has been happening over the past few years in Catalonia is key to appreciating why Catalonia is seeking a referendum on self-determination. Find out more by clicking here.
