Spain: Thousands rally for 'Yes' vote in independence referendum

Thousands of pro-independence supporters rallied in Barcelona, Friday, to promote the 'Yes' vote in the upcoming independence referendum which is set to take place on October 1. President of the Generalitat of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont addressed the cheering crowd, saying that «today we won against the fear and threats, we won against the pressure, the lies and the intimidation, we won against... Еще an authoritarian government [referring to government of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy] who didn't want us to get to this point.» The Spanish government has deemed the referendum «illegal.» The Constitutional Court suspended the Catalan referendum law, following an appeal from the Spanish government. It will be suspended until the court reaches a decision.
