LIVE: Thousands march for Catalonia's independence
Thousands of people are marching in Barcelona, with flags and banners in support of Catalonia's independence from Spain.
BARCELONA, SPAIN - OCTOBER 21: Protesters wave Catalan independence flags and a giant flag to demand freedom and independence as they demonstrate against the Spanish federal government's move to suspend Catalonian autonomy and against the imprisonment of Catalan leaders Jordi Sanchez and Jordi Cuixart on October 21, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. The Spanish government announced measures today it will implement in triggering Article 155, which would lead to the imposition of direct rule by Spanish authorities in Catalonia and at least temporarily suspend the region's autonomy. The government also plans to hold Catalan regional elections in January. The moves come after Catalan regional President Carles Puigdemont let a Thursday deadline today pass and threatened to go forward with Catalan independence. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
