Thousands of pro-Catalan demonstrators took to the streets and occupied an airport near Barcelona on Monday, October 14, to express their anger at the decision by Spain’s supreme court to sentence separatist leaders to several years in prison.
Here, protesters in Girona are shown blocking a major motorway and regional rail lines, as reported by the local transport authority.
They also blocked the high-speed rail line between Spain and France.
Pro-independence leader Carlos Puigdemont spoke from Brussels and called for Catalan independence supporters to reject the sentences. Credit: @diariARA via Storyful
