barcelona - Catalan nationalists gathered on the Passeig de Gràcia street in Barcelona on Saturday afternoon. They demonstrate against the arrest of two leaders of the divorce movement and against the intervention of Spain.

The protest starts at 5.00 pm. The protesters carry Catalan flags and signs with texts such as 'Freedom, Dignity, Republic'. Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont and his right hand Oriol Junqueras are probably also in protest.

The two prisoners are two leaders of separatist groups: Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart. They are supported internationally on social media with #jordis. The mayor of Barcelona is also participating in the march.
