Earlier this week, Spain's Supreme Court sentenced nine out of 12 former Catalan pro-independence leaders to prison over their role in organising Catalonia's independence referendum in 2017.

People are pouring onto the streets of Barcelona, Spain this Friday to call for a general strike in support of Catalan pro-independence leaders sentenced to prison earlier in the day.
