    This was the general strike of October 18, 2019 in Catalonia and the following days

    Barcelona lives the seventh day of mobilizations that the Government delegation has had as a scenario today after a tense truce on a night of peaceful resistance to protest against the 'procés' sentence. EL PERIÓDICO offers you the latest news of the day in Catalonia live: mobilizations, traffic cuts, political reactions.

    The Meridiana is still partially cut more than four hours later

    The Meridiana avenue in Barcelona is still partially cut off to traffic more than four hours later, when protesters peacefully occupy the road at Fabra i Puig. The cut began around 7:00 pm with hundreds of people, and at 23.25 are about 200, who are standing or sitting and chatting, as at the beginning. The Mossos d'Esquadra have asked them to leave during the night so as not to obstruct the movement, but the mobilized have refused.

    It is certainly sad what you live in Barcelona. The president of Òmnium Cultural, Jordi Cuixart, today asked for the "immediate freedom" of the people arrested this week in Catalonia during protests over the sentence of the 'procés'. We were with friends in that city at that time, we had minibus rental with driver but the area was very difficult to pass.

    In a handwritten letter that he has shared on his Twitter profile, Cuixart, who has been sentenced to nine years in prison for sedition, sends a big hug to the relatives and friends of the independentistas detained in recent days in Catalonia and asks for his post released and "let the incarceration stop." "Remember that non-violent action is the most powerful instrument we have to transform society. United in diversity. Always ahead," says Cuixart, who ends the letter with a "that only kisses cover our mouths."
