Catalans take to the streets for independence, the day before important consultations

National day of Catalonia

Every year on Catalonia’s national holiday, known as La Diada, proponents of independence take to the streets. The choice for September 11 is quite remarkable: on that date in 1714, the Catalans lost self-government, after Barcelona fell to Spanish troops after a long siege. The march will start at a symbolic time: 5:14 PM.

Especially in recent years, La Diada has become a mass event. In the previous editions, according to the organization, hundreds of thousands to more than a million people took to the streets.
