Far-right protesters raised their arms in fascist salutes as they confronted Catalan independence supporters in Barcelona's Sant Jaume Square, outside regional government buildings, on Sunday.
The rally was called under the slogan «Espana existe» (Spain exists in English), with similar protests held outside local government offices in all provincial capitals.
Antifa and pro-Catalan independence... Еще protesters staged a counter demonstration holding signs and Catalan flags.
Vox members also took part in the demonstration with the party's MP Ignacio Garriga, stating that the movement sought «to claim our nation, to claim Spain, to claim our sovereignty, to claim our constitution.»
In contrast Carles Riera, the spokesperson of Catalonia's pro-independence CUP party, warned that «Every space and every metre that is left free for fascism, it's an attack against democracy, freedoms and everyone's rights.»
