Thousands of Catalan separatists demonstrate in Barcelona during Diada national day

Catalan separatist supporters draped in pro-independence flags gathered in the regional capital Barcelona on Wednesday for a huge rally to call for a break from Spain and the release of their jailed leaders.Draped in pro independence ‘estelada’ flags, most of the protesters raised their voices to demand the release of the politicians that defied a judicial ban by carrying out a secessionist vote and the short-lived independence declaration that followed.The confrontation saw police wielding batons at crowds seeking to vote and prompted the then-conservative government to impose direct rule from Madrid on the region.
