#Catalonia MEP Anderson: where is #EU?..

The mayor of Barcelona Ada Colau Ballano informed about  460 injured after Spanish riot police stormed polling stations in an attempt to physically prevent Catalonia’s independence referendum taking place. Spanish national newspaper El Pais reports about 465 injured.

In spite of the riot police efforts many Catalans managed to cast their ballots in the poll, declared ‘illegal’ by Madrid,  there were numerous victims of Spanish riot police actions, expropriating ballot boxes by force.

The large Ramon Llull school in Barcelona was the scene of a sustained operation, with witnesses describing police using axes to smash their way in, charging the crowds and firing rubber bullets.
