Catalans prepare vote for independence from Spain

"We are now preparing the referendum because ... either in an agreed way or not, we need to be ready," Raul Romeva said on Thursday at the Catalan regional government's representative office in London.
The wealthy northeastern region, which has its own language and culture, is home to a strong separatist movement, which has been intensified by high unemployment and austerity cuts in Spain. But attempts to hold a Scottish-style referendum on independence have been blocked in the courts by Madrid.
