Here in Catalonia we all know that we are a part of Spain, but some people here (like 50%, so it's not that general) are trying to make an independent state out of Spanish government and they reject their Spanish nationality.
I am actually out of this topic since I don't like Spain's way of working and I also don't like the idea behind independentism.
In my opinion, independentism is like modern feminism, a few people that use the correct words to convert the people without formed ideas into followers of their movement.
*Sorry if my english is not that good, but in Spain the english level required at schools is at most bullshit so we don't learn that much (you would have noticed that if you had ever played CSGO with a Spaniard lol).
And yes, that's one of the policies of the Spanish government that I hate the most and I actually envy nordic countries for their knowledge about english :C.
