Spain: 'You cannot imagine that in a democratic country' — eyewitness recounts police brutality during Catalan vote

Catalan voter Pep Planas recounted Spanish police brutality during the Catalan independence referendum, in Barcelona, Monday. Planas noted that the police were «obliviously beating people» — «throwing them from up the stairs,» «pulling them from their hair» and «kicking them.» He went on to argue that such acts were «totally gratuitous» and that «there was no need for any kind of violence in... Еще getting the people out.» The eyewitness expressed that police brutality was «horrendous,» adding that «you cannot imagine that in a democratic country.» The Catalan government announced that according to preliminary results 2,262,424 ballots were cast; with 90,09 percent voting in favour of Catalonia's independence from Spain and 7,87 percent casting a 'No' vote. The Spanish government has deemed the referendum «illegal,» noting that it will not recognise its outcome.
