Catalonia: What's the next move?

It's Spain's biggest constitutional crisis since a 1981 failed coup, and there's no end in sight. Students rallied on a day of general strike throughout Catalonia, in the wake of Sunday's crackdown on a banned independence referendum.

What's the takeaway for Catalonia, Spain and the rest of the continent?
