Catalonia is a region in Spain home to many people and businesses. Many Catalonians want to break off from Spain.
Many Catalonians believe that they “aren’t Spanish’, and because of that, they thought they deserved their own country.
The Catalonians held a vote in an attempt to get their own country, but it was turned down, despite 90% of the voters wanting independence.

After the vote, multiple protests were held, which resulted in injury. Over 900 Catalonian protesters were treated for injuries after an involvement with the Spanish police.
The Spanish government decided to enact Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution. This allowed them to take control of the region of Catalonia.
After all of the officials of the Catalonian government were fired, the Spanish Nationalists regained control. Shortly after, however, Catalonian Nationalists regained control over the region, and a new government was created.
