When we traveled to barcelona to document the pro-independence movement in 2015, there was dialogue and understanding between both sides. last week's IMAGES OF police violence and protests tell a very different story.


This referendum has discredited Spanish democracy.

I woke up in tears today. Yesterday, I met Franco, and I will never forget it.
It was horrible.
— Pau Castellví Canet
 

 
The EU can play a role of mediation and arbitration.
— ERNEST URTASUN, SPANISH AND CATALAN EURO PARLIAMENTARIAN

 
I feel Catalan, but I feel I need to ask permission to be so.
— Marta Pascal - Junts pel Si
 
It’s quite tough to be a non-independentist here in Barcelona.
— A Cuidadanos supporter

What others said...

I am not passionate about either option - both sides probably have good reasons for their position. But when the police starts wiping the streets with grandmothers, something is seriously wrong.
The actions of the Catalan government have been reckless from the start.
We have today in Spain a fascist government where the ghost of Franco is more present each day
