An exterior view of Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya (regional government) is seen in Barcelona, December 12, 2013. Separatist parties in Spain's northeastern Catalonia region on Thursday agreed the wording of an independence referendum on November 9, 2014, but the Spanish government said the vote was illegal and would not happen. Catalan regional government head Artur Mas said the vote would ask two questions: "Do you want Catalonia to be a state?" and "Do you want that state to be independent?".
