Police vehicles pushed back by march of striking Catalan protesters

Catalan police clashed with protesters in Barcelona during a general strike in the Spanish region today (February 21), with police retreating after temporarily blocking the marchers' path. Footage filmed this afternoon shows police vehicles and officers moving back as demonstrators, marching for the liberation of Catalan political prisoners, advance through the streets. The protesters blocked major roads and train tracks across the northeastern region of Spain. The action was organised by unions of pro-independence workers and students to back Catalonia's secession from Spain.
