7 Oct

Thousands are gathered at simultaneous rallies in Madrid and Barcelona in a call for dialogue amid a political crisis caused by Catalonia’s secession push.

People dressed in white gathered in Barcelona under the slogan “Shall We Talk?” in a message to Spain’s politicians.

Organisers of the rallies had asked people to not bring any flags, neither Spanish nor Catalan, and to wear white clothes.

At the same time in Madrid there was another rally in support of Spanish unity and against Catalan independence.
