Thousands of residents in Madrid, opposed to Sunday’s planned referendum on Catalonian independence, have held their own mock vote.
Under the slogan “the referendum of everybody” Hazte Oir (ASTE OH-EAR), an organisation aimed at promoting public democracy, asked citizens to vote whether they want Catalonia to remain in Spain.
Its leader is Ignacio Arsuaga:
>> “Madrid residents are voting in a referendum that has no democratic guarantees just like the referendum that seems to be going ahead on Sunday in Catalonia. According to polls it looks like people will vote for Catalonia to remain in Spain.”
