Thousands rally in Madrid against Spanish PM’s proposed talks on Catalonia

Thousands of people demonstrated in Madrid against Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s proposed talks to ease political tensions in Catalonia, in a protest organised by centre-right and far-right opposition parties. Demonstrators waving Spanish flags filled the Plaza de Colon in the city centre in the largest protest Sanchez has faced, with their slogan “For a united Spain, elections now!” a reminder of the pressure on his minority government. The Socialist government’s proposal to appoint a rapporteur in talks among political parties to address the Catalan independence crisis galvanized the opposition, which has deemed it a betrayal and surrender to pressure from Catalan separatists. The opposition has called for early elections.
