Thousands of people took to the streets of Barcelona on Monday, to show their discontent about the planned visit of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to the city, after a tense weekend of protests.
Footage shows a heavy police presence as protesters rallied to demand freedom for jailed pro-independence activists.
Activists blamed Sanchez for reportedly refusing to meet Catalan independence leader Quim Torra, who requested a meeting with the Prime Minister to initiate a dialogue on the independence movement.
During Monday's visit, Sanchez was due to meet the police officers who were injured during the last five consecutive evenings of rioting. According to the authorities, 288 police officers were injured and 194 people were arrested over the past weekend.
