Thousands attend Barcelona rally for unity in Spain

rally for unity in Spain
Hundreds of thousands gathered in Barcelona on Sunday to call for unity and show support for the Spanish government's reaction to Catalonia's push for independence.

Attendees of the rally draped Spanish flags around their necks, held banners and chanted slogans.

The rally's official slogan was: "We are all Catalonia. Common sense for co-existence!"

Spain's government disbanded the Catalan Parliament over the weekend and dismissed local leaders, effectively seizing control of the autonomous region. Last week, the region's parliament voted for independence, which is forbidden by the Spanish Constitution.
