Hundreds of police stood guard near the Catalan parliament in Barcelona, Spain, on October 10, as thousands gathered to watch screens showing President Carles Puigdemont claiming a mandate to seceded, but stopping short of declaring independence. The speech followed a independence referendum on October 1 that saw multiple clashes between police and separatists after the referendum was declared unconstitutional by Spanish authorities.
