Pro-Spanish civil society and political forces have rallied in the Catalan capital against the independence motion of the north-eastern region. The rally was organized by the Catalan Civil Society, an umbrella group that advocates keeping Catalonia within Spain. The group opposes the holding of a referendum on independence scheduled for the fall of 2017. Kusai Kedri reports from Barcelona.
