Portugal: Lisbon protests in unity with Catalonia outside Spanish embassy

Scores of people rallied outside the Spanish embassy in Lisbon, Monday, in support of the Catalan independence referendum, which was held one day prior. The protesters held banners denouncing the Spanish government's reaction and chanted about Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's 'dictatorship'. The Catalan government announced that, according to preliminary, results 2,262,424 ballots were cast; with 90.09 percent voting in favour of Catalonia's independence from Spain compared to 7.87 percent casting a 'No' vote. The Spanish government has deemed the referendum «illegal» and «unconstitutional» noting that it will not recognise its outcome.
