Spain: Aragon rallies for Catalan 'right to decide'

Spain, Zaragoza
September 30, 2017 at 10:57 GMT +00:00 · Published

Scores of people rallied in Zaragoza (Saragossa), the regional capital of Aragon, Saturday, in support of Sunday's Catalan independence referendum.

The rally was reportedly organised by the 'Marchas por la Dignidad' ('Marches of dignity') movement. The group's spokesperson, David Ubico, stated that "by defending Catalonia's right to decide, we are defending democratic liberty of all people in the country." The demonstrators held placards reading "Voting is not a crime but a right," demanding that the Catalan independence vote takes place.

The Spanish government has deemed the Catalan referendum "illegal." The Constitutional Court suspended the Catalan referendum law, following an appeal from the Spanish government. It will be suspended until the court reaches a decision.
