Tractors rolled through Barcelona on Friday, September 29, as Catalan farmers came out to demonstrate their support for the region’s independence referendum to go ahead on Sunday. On Thursday, police seized millions of ballot papers and dozens of ballot boxes in the latest attempt to block the referendum, which the central government in Madrid said it would not recognize. The row between Madrid and the Catalan government, which saw regional government offices raided and several politicians arrested, has sparked angry large-scale protests over recent weeks.
