Right-wing rally draws large crowd in Madrid:

The Washington Post - - THE WORLD -

Tens of thou­sands of peo­ple joined a right-wing rally in Spain’s cap­i­tal to de­mand that Prime Min­is­ter Pe­dro Sánchez step down for his han­dling of the Cat­alo­nia re­gion’s se­ces­sion cri­sis. Many in the crowd in Madrid’s Plaza de Colon waved the na­tional flag and chanted sup­port for Spain’s se­cu­rity forces along with call­ing for the So­cial­ist premier’s res­ig­na­tion. The ten­sions come ahead of a trial start­ing in Spain’s Supreme Court on Tues­day for 12 Cata­lan sep­a­ratists fac­ing charges for their roles in a se­ces­sion at­tempt in 2017.
