Residents of Barcelona shared their opinions about the ongoing Catalan independence crisis, Thursday, ahead of a key vote in the Spanish Senate on Friday. A local named Pepita said he was in favour of Catalan independence, because citizens in Barcelona would «suffer a lot» if the Spanish government were to take control. However, others expressed their concern on the matter. «[Independence... Еще] would be a drama,» stressed Tamara. The Senate is expected to approve the application of Article 155 on Friday. The article was passed by Rajoy's government last week.
