The Yellow Ribbon War in Catalonia

One year after the Catalan independence referendum, the region's status still divides the population as much as ever.

The confrontations between unionists and independentists are taking on new forms. One of them is a grotesque war in which weapons are poles, ribbons, flags, and white suits.
Almost every day, independence activists hang yellow ribbons on balconies, trees and street furniture by day and with their faces exposed. At night, opponents of Catalonia's independence, who have formed "cleaning brigades", organize themselves to take the separatist signs that adorn the roads down.
