Mustafa AY – TDO – 12.09.2018 On Tuesday, hundreds of thousands of Catalan secessionists marched on Barcelona streets in order to their national festival ‘La Diada’, which has been celebrated since 1714. Autonomous Administrative Region of Catalonia’s President –Quim Torra- and his self-exiled predecessor Charles Pugidemont renewed their call of independence from Spain through Catalan secessionists in the national festival. Because of that La Diada denotes a sort of independence, its celebration in public places was forbidden during General Franco Regime.
