800,000 Catalans Stage Independence Protests

Reuters

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets across Catalonia to support a break from Spain which local leaders want to deliver next year in spite of legal blocks by the central government.

Catalans gathered in five cities across the northeastern region, including Barcelona, on Sunday, - The Guardian reports.

Local police estimated that 800,000 people had taken part but Spain’s central government, which fiercely opposes Catalan independence, put turnout at around 370,000 strong.
