Luke Stobart is an author, academic and activist, who was in Catalonia on the day of the independence referendum, involved amongst other things in a dramatic demonstration to defend a polling station from the Spanish national police. He is currently working on a book for Verso Press, on the multiple crises facing the Spanish state, covering the rise of the Indignados movement, Podemos, and the Catalan independence struggle. He spoke to Alex Whisson yesterday from the UK. Alex began by asking Luke to give his firsthand account of his experiences on the day of the referendum.
