Defying Madrid’s demand to “firmly” keep order, supporters of jailed #Catalan pro-independence leaders launched a fresh #rally in #Barcelona. The protest later turned into scuffles with police and barricades being set ablaze.
The unrest is gripping the Catalan capital, as well as other cities, for the third consecutive day. The mass rallies were sparked by Spain’s Supreme Court’s Monday ruling that sentenced nine Catalan pro-independence top brass to jail terms between nine and 13 years over their roles in the failed 2017 independence bid.
