The people of Catalonia are working towards creating their own country. Their latest step has been to fund the creation of their own ID cards.
CATALONIA has begun developing ID cards that will be issued to its residents in the case of gaining independence from Spain.
The new cards will feature the residents’ names, addresses and dates of birth as well as their social security numbers and tax data.
Catalan authorities are splashing €9 million on the cards, which are an attempt to show its inhabitants that their rights and benefits will be preserved in the case of secession from Spain.
Madrid has long been declining the region’s push for independence, saying it would violate the Spanish constitution.
