Columns of farmers drive tractors through the streets of Barcelona to show their support for the Catalonian independence referendum that is scheduled to take place on Sunday.

In video captured on Friday afternoon (Septermber 29), dozens of tractors, decorated with independence flags, block roads as they roll through the Catalonian city.

The march was part of a rally organised by the union of agriculturists, Unio de Pagesos, to protest the judicial measures taken by the central Spanish government aimed at preventing people from voting in the referendum.

According to reports, the farmers intend to park their vehicles in front of polling stations in an attempt to keep them open before police are ordered to shut them down.
