National Turk. Catalonia Independence: Is there danger of civil war in Spain, again?
The rise of Catalan nationalism is provoking tension in Spain. In the light of the independence drive by Catalunya, the Spanish governing party have issued instructions to the navy to intercept fishing boats and demand them to fly the Spanish National flag.
On Saturday morning, a military naval vessel from the Spanish armed forces prevented numerous fishing vessels from a local Catalonian port in Gerona to leave port because they were not displaying the Spanish national flag, all the boats had to return to port and were unable to fish.
