OINK! OINK! Catalan Protesters Hurl Pig Heads At POLICE After Catalan Prez Suspended


PROTESTERS in Barcelona hurled pig heads at Spanish Police after the Catalan President was suspended sparking mass riots.

Thousands took to the streets of Barcelona on Monday night protesting the decision of the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia to suspend president of the autonomous community, Quim Torra, for disobedience.

Footage revealed protesters during the action, which was called by the Committees for the Defense of the Republic (CDR), marching with signs and banners while chanting slogans.

At one point a police barrier of the Mossos d’Esquadra prevented the march from continuing, with some protesters reacting by throwing pigs’ heads at the police.

Earlier in the day, the disqualification of President Quim Torra by the High Court of Justice of Catalonia was announced. The ruling implies the replacement of Torra by the vice-president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragones, until new elections are held.

Torra criticized the court’s ruling, and said it was revenge against those who defend human and universal rights.

CATALAN PREZ CALLS FOR ‘DEMOCRATIC RUPTURE’

President Quim Torra said a ‘democratic, peaceful and disobedient rupture’ was the way for the region to gain its independence at a press conference in Barcelona on Monday.

He made the statement after the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia suspended him on the grounds of disobedience. “Today I want to address myself to you, because some judges, and not the people of Catalonia represented in Parliament, have decided that I can no longer be the President of Catalonia,” he said, adding that he would appeal the decision in the European Union.

He also referred to the regional elections that will take place in a few months, saying the poll “must be a new plebiscite and a new mandate to confirm the October 1st referendum.” Torra also criticised the Spanish government for “accompanying” a “monarch accused of corruption to hide in a dictatorship” in reference to the departure of King emeritus Juan Carlos I to the United Arab Emirates.
