Thousands gathered in the Spanish capital Madrid on Sunday in solidarity with the Catalan people and in protest over the imprisonment of the two Catalan civil society leaders, Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart. Protesters shouted slogans such as «Madrid stands with the Catalan people» and demanded freedom for the Catalan leaders. As the night fell the protesters lit candles, held them high and... Еще chanted. Sanchez and Cuixart were taken into custody by the Spanish national court on Monday night, and are being detained on possible ground of sedition. The investigation into the pair stems from a September 20 protest which saw a crowd of protesters trapping Spanish Civil Guard (Guardia Civil) officers inside a Catalan government building in Barcelona.
