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.
