Catalonia Sets Date for Referendum on Leaving Spain

Catalonia’s parliament
Catalonia’s parliament voted to hold an independence referendum on October 1, setting up a clash with the Spanish government that has vowed to stop what it says would be an illegal vote.
After 12 hours of often chaotic debate in the Barcelona parliament on Wednesday, a majority voted for the referendum and the legal framework to set up a new state, under which the assembly would declare independence within 48 hours of a “yes” vote.

Lawmakers who opposed independence abandoned the chamber before the vote, with some leaving Catalan flags in their empty seats, Reuters reported.
