Catalonian, Spanish protesters call for talks

“Thousands of people have rallied in Madrid and Barcelona in a last-ditch call for Spanish and Catalan leaders to stave off a national crisis amid Catalonia’s imminent threat to secede from the rest of Spain. The demonstrations in the Spanish capital and the Catalan city of Barcelona were held simultaneously under the slogan ‘Shall We Talk?’ in an effort to push legislators in both cities to end months of silence and start negotiating. The crowd wore white T-shirts and respected the organisers’ call to not bring Spanish or Catalan flags.” (10/07/17)
