A demonstration is scheduled to take place in Barcelona on Tuesday, September 11. According to local sources, the march is set to coincide with Catalan National Day and is being organized in support of Catalan independence. Demonstrators will gather at 16:00 (local time) at Glories Square before marching along Avenida Diagonal to Palau Reial. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the demonstration.


Political tensions flared between the Spanish government and supporters of Catalan independence following Catalonia's controversial and unsanctioned independence referendum on October 1, 2017. The results, in which 90 percent of the votes were in favor of independence, were ruled unconstitutional and annulled by the central government in Madrid.  


Individuals in Barcelona are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
