Around 300 people on 100 tractors blocked the N-240 highway, near Garrigues in Lleida, in the north-east of Spain on Tuesday to protest against police violence during the weekend’s referendum. The protests are part of a region-wide general strike against police brutality over the weekend’s independence referendum. Barcelona’s university, Barcelona Football Club, the Sagrada Familia and the museum... Еще of contemporary art are among some of the institutions joining the general strike. Similar protests took place in La Bisbal de Falset and Corbera d'Ebre, Tarragona region, Vic and Sant Llorenç d'Hortonsn near Barcelona and others Catalan municipalities. Catalonia held a referendum on October 1 to decide on the region’s independence, with the Spanish government deeming the action 'illegal' and 'unconstitutional.' At least 893 people and 33 police officers were reportedly injured on Sunday’s independence referendum.
