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

Pro-independence leader Carlos Puigdemont spoke from Brussels and called for Catalan independence supporters to reject the sentences.
