Police vehicles drive in Barcelona on September 30, a day before Catalonia’s referendum on independence. On September 28, 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.
