Hundreds of thousands marched through the streets of Catalonia on Tuesday,  in protest of Spain’s violent crack-down during the Catalan independence referendum.

At least 300,000 took to the streets of Barcelona, in protest of the Spanish police actions which saw voters dragged by their hair and shot at by rubber bullets.

Responding to the protests, Spain’s Interior Minister, Juan Ignacio Zoido said,

“We see how day after day the government of Catalonia is pushing the population to the abyss and inciting rebellion in the streets.”

The Minister further warned that het Spanish government “would take all measures necessary to stop acts of harassment.”
