Barcelona: Crowds continue to show their support for independence

Around one million people thronged the streets of Barcelona for National Catalunya Day and to show their continuous support for the independence of this Spanish region. The celebrations this year were the first to be held since the referendum for independence held on 1 October of last year.

The regional Catalan President, Quim Torra and his predecessor, Carles Puigdemont, urged the crowds dressed in red shirts  to protest.

The Spanish Foreign Affairs Minister, who is Catalan, said that the Catalans should celebrate their national day and not just call for independence which he said is only wanted by half the population.
