Spain: Catalan activists defiant despite crackdown

More than half a year has passed since the banned referendum in Catalonia and there has been no breakthrough in the crisis.

    Spain's government has become increasingly tough on Catalans who still dream of secession.

    The central government in Madrid has imposed direct rule on the region.

    A number of Catalan separatist leaders are under arrest on rebellion charges, which are punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

     

    Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego reports from Barcelona on how activists are changing their tactics with a new pro-independence movement.
