    On November 9, the autonomous province of Catalonia held a non-binding vote on whether it should remain a part of Spain or strive for independence. The voters were asked two questions: “Do you want Catalonia to become a state?” and “If so, do you want Catalonia to be an independent state?”

    For decades, Yasser Arafat was the incarnation of the Palestinian fight for independence. Ten years after his death on November 11, 2004, he remains a national hero for a still stateless people.
