🇪🇸 Massive Barcelona protests over separatists’ rebellion charges | Al Jazeera English
Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets of Barcelona to demonstrate against the jailing of nine Catalan separatist leaders for their role in last year’s secession referendum.
Spanish authorities intend to try them on charges of rebellion – including the former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont who fled to Germany.
Rebellion carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
