The Constitutional Court on 4 November upheld the Spanish government’s ban against the “informal public consultation” on the independence of Catalonia scheduled for 9 November. The non-binding consultation was organised by the Catalan government after the Court ruled out a referendum planned for the same date.

Catalan president Artur Mas announced he would appeal the decision, go ahead with the “participatory process” and demand that Madrid “ensure freedom of expression” for Catalans, reports La Vanguardia.
