Spain: Tractor armada rolls into Barcelona in support of Catalan independence

Thousands of people gathered around the Catalan parliament in Barcelona to support Catalan President Carles Puigdemont’s appearance at a plenary session on Tuesday. Farmers from Maresme travelled to Barcelona and parked around 30 tractors under the Arc de Triomf to express their support for Puigdemont. Various demonstrators expressed hope that Catalan independence would be declared that same day... Еще, with one farmer urging the Catalan government to “pull forward,” while another demonstrator highlighted “the two million people who decided their future on the first of October.” Columns of tractors, known as ‘tractoradas,’ have become a symbol of Catalonia’s independence movement. During the referendum on independence, tractors were positioned outside polling stations as a means of defence against intervention by Spanish police.
