The students of Barcelona have taken up a strike in protest of the application of Article 155 but the central government against Catalunya. They also strike in support of Jordi Sànchez y Jordi Cuixart, Catalonian politicians who have been incarcerated for their involvement in the Independence Movement.

According to El Periodic, the students’ slogan is “El pueblo ha votado. Ahora República,” or “The city has voted. Republic now”
This drumming up of support precedes the big meeting tomorrow, Friday October 27th, where the senate will vote on the approval of Article 155. If it is approved, Catalonia’s governmental institutions could be completely taken over.
