Students protesting against Catalonia crackdown

Around two thousand students have gathered around and inside one of Barcelona’s main universities calling for an end to the crackdown of a referendum over Catalonia’s secession Spain.
The students are carrying pro-independence flags and banners supporting the Oct. 1 vote. They are also shouting slogans in support of a dozen officials that are under investigation in relation to the referendum.
Hundreds of students have entered the main building of Barcelona University and have occupied a central cloister near the offices of the dean and other university managers.
Student union representatives are calling for protesters to remain over the weekend to show support for the vote.
Spain’s Constitutional Court has suspended the vote while judges assess its legality.
