Not everyone has time for Catalan independence

The shepherds of Spain's Pyrenees have their own language, culture and concerns. They spoke to Al Jazeera about their views on Catalonia and Catalan independence.

The Spanish government has called a snap election in the northwest Catalonia region for December 21.
The vote follows government leaders in Madrid imposing direct rule on the region, which is threatening to break away after a secession referendum.
But 10,000 people living in a remote valley high in the mountains between Catalonia and France do not feel affinity to Catalonia and have little time for the Catalan independence movement.
