Catalonia: 90% of voters said “yes” to independence from Spain. Catalonia has 5.34 million voters; the Catalan government reported that out of the 2,262,424 ballots that were not seized, 2,020,144 were YES votes, 176,566 were NO votes, 45,586 were blank, and 20,129 were null votes. The Spanish government’s massive police crackdown “prevented” an estimated 770,000 people from voting. So far, 844 people have reported injuries from police brutality during the vote, and 74 have already filed official complaints. Spain’s Prime Minister announced that “no referendum” took place in the country, claiming the majority of Catalans “obeyed the law” and did not want to participate in the independence vote after Madrid branded it illegal.
