Spain: Catalan independence supporters rally in Barcelona ahead of general elections

Thousands of pro-independence activists rallied on Barcelona's Universitat Square on Saturday, one day ahead of the Spanish general elections. The activists exhibited numerous Catalan independence movement flags and placards demanding independence and freedom for jailed Catalan politicians. Barcelona and nearby municipalities have been rocked by demonstrations since Spain's Supreme Court jailed... Еще nine politicians for between nine and 13 years for their role in Catalonia's secession attempt and an illegal independence referendum in 2017. Spain will return to the polls for the second time in 2019, with a general election set for 10 November. The winner of the April 28 elections, the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE), was unable to form a government amid months of political instability.
