Barcelona – 750,000 crowd demands release of Catalonian political prisoners
A protest led by relatives of the politicians and activists arrested and being held in jail for organising the Catalonian independence referendum on 1 October, saw a crowd of around 750,000 filling more than 3 kilometres of the Carrer de la Marina in Barcelona.
The demands included safe passage for Carles Puigdemont and former cabinet members in exile in Brussels. All have been charged with sedition and rebellion, and face a maximum 30 years in jail, if found guilty.
