The poor citizens of Catalonia only wanted to demonstrate their right to vote in a referendum on the 1st of October 2017 but got shocked at what ensued. Regardless of how the Spanish government felt about this referendum, there should never have been this police brutality.
This is truly a sad state for democracy and a disgrace for Europe. What ensued is what you expect in the Banana republic and not in any country in Europe.
It got so bad that some of the policemen could not hide their emotions for the Catalonian citizens. This I was just a wrong approach by the Spanish government on so many levels.
