PROTESTORS hit the street Barcelona last night after the Supreme Court announced it would be stepping up its legal action against separatists.
It ruled that some 25 Catalan leaders should be tried for rebellion, embezzlement or disobeying the state – with convictions resulting in up to 30 years in prison.
More than 20 locals were injured after police used riot batons on the crowds.
Demonstrations also took place in other parts of the region.
A Supreme Court judge ordered five more Catalunya leaders be detained without bail for their help in organising the ‘illegal’ referendum last year.
