Above is a map of the various active separatist movements in Europe. I don’t know the details of all their qualms, but I think these things need to be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Scottish independence seemed to be appealing only to the pride of the Scottish people and a generalized hatred of the English. In Catalonia, it seems to be mainly about the fact that with the Spanish economy having collapsed, Barcelona is still very wealthy, and they are sick of sharing this wealth with the rest of the country.
Obviously, I support the separatist movement in the East of the Ukraine, but that is a rather different scenario, where a group of Jews is attempting to forcibly bully the people into poverty and oppression.
There are both positives and negatives to centralization in the modern world, and as we saw with the Scotland situation, Jews are playing both sides.
