Huge Spain unity rally in Barcelona

At least 350,000 people gathered in Barcelona, capital of Catalonia, for a rally against independence from Spain. They waved Spanish and Catalan flags and carried banners saying “Together we are stronger” and “Catalonia is Spain”. It was the largest such rally in Catalonia amid the furore over last week’s disputed independence referendum.

Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy has warned he would not rule out anything “within the law” to halt Catalan secession. Similar rallies were held across Spain on Saturday. The final results from the referendum in the wealthy north-eastern region suggested 90% of the 2.3 million people who voted backed independence. Turnout was 43%.
