We often hear about regions or nations that want to break away from the country that rules them.
In the United Kingdom, people from Scotland are to vote on whether they want to become independent.
Rob and Neil discuss why people fight for independence and why, in some cases, they want to merge with other regions and become one united country.
Watch the following video and answer the following questions:
-When was the American Declaration of Independence made?
-How many colonies took part in the American Declaration on Independence?
-What is the ruling Political Party in Scotland at the moment?
-When is the referendum going to be hold in Scotland?
-When did India become independent from British Rule?
I also want you to write a composition about the Catalonian nationalism. Are you in favour of their Independence? Why (not)? Do you think the referendum will be finally hold?
