Thousands of people rallied in Madrid’s La Puerta del Sol square in solidarity with the people of Catalonia on October 1, the day of the controversial Catalan independence referendum that was marred by violent clashes with police. Officials said at least 844 people had been reported injured in the violence outside voting centers. “We should be counting votes, not victims of police repression,” tweeted the verified account of the Catalonian Government.
