A major rally calling for Spanish unity is starting in Barcelona a day after Catalonia was stripped of its autonomy for declaring independence.
Many of those protesting in the region's largest city chanted that sacked Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont should be jailed.
Mr Puigdemont was dismissed as Spain's central government took control of Catalan institutions.
Friday saw the regional parliament declare independence, with Madrid responding by declaring the move illegal.
