Spain: Thousands demand Catalan independence leaders' freedom in Barcelona

Thousands of people demonstrated in the centre of Barcelona on Saturday to express their support for two imprisoned Catalan civil society leaders, Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart. Protesters chanted slogans demanding their freedom and also to decry Madrid's decision to implement article 155 of the Spanish constitution. Catalan government leaders fronted the demonstration, including Catalan... Еще President Carles Puigdemont and Catalan Parliament President Carme Forcadell. 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 protestors trapping Spanish Civil Guard (Guardia Civil) officers inside a Catalan government building in Barcelona.
