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.

Protesters began blocking traffic, with hundreds then heading for the El Prat airport on the outskirts of Barcelona, clashing with police and disrupting flights.

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.
