    People in the Catalonia region of Spain are insisting on going ahead with a referendum on independence on Sunday, despite the government declaring it illegal.

    Catalan leaders will not say where the ballot boxes are, but if they manage to pull off the vote - and if Catalans vote yes - they must create a republic from scratch.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from the Catalan town of La Senia.
