On Thursday, a Spanish court overturned the latest government lockdown restrictions placed on the capital, Madrid, and 9 other cities.
Madrid's highest regional court rejected the measures imposed by the Spanish central government, calling them an "interference by public authorities in citizens' fundamental rights."
The separatist legislators said Catalan voters gave them a mandate for the declaration in an Oct. 1 referendum on independence. Catalan authorities say around two million voters cast ballots and that the vast majority voted in favor of secession. However, opposition parties boycotted the vote and the Spanish government declared it illegal. The vote was also marred by clashes with the police.
When Catalans go to the polls on Sunday, they'll find just one question on the ballot: “Do you want Catalonia to become an independent state in the form of a republic?”
State-owned broadcaster RTVE reported police killed four people and injured another, after police suspected they were planning a second terror attack.
