Spain: Protesters block roads in Girona as Catalonia stages general strike

Students blocked off access to the main arteries into the city of Girona on Tuesday, and have been joined by tractors blocking off the N-II road that connects north and south Catalonia. 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 of... Еще contemporary art are among some of the institutions joining the general strike. At least 893 people and 33 police officers were reportedly injured on Sunday’s independence referendum, after Spanish police used rubber bullets and force to seize ballot boxes in preventing Catalonia's independence referendum, that Madrid has deemed «illegal» and «unconstitutional» from taking place.
