Protest over Catalunya's independence in Barcelona
By:
thinkSPAIN , Monday, February 1, 2016

THOUSANDS of Catalunya residents staged a demonstration in front of the regional government headquarters in Barcelona yesterday (Sunday) protesting over politicians' efforts to proclaim independence from Spain.

Supported by the centre-liberal party Ciudadanos and the right-wing PP, and organised by the Catalunya Civil Society, the demonstration saw banners wielded reading: “No to the process, yes to progress;” “A united Europe will never be beaten,” and “Long live Spain, long live Catalunya.”

Spanish and European Union flags flew amongst the protesters, who expressed their disagreement with their regional government 'acting against the national Constitution'.

Current president Carles Puigdemont, who has taken over from his party colleague Artur Mas, believes Catalunya could be in a position to unilaterally declare independence from Spain within 18 months.
