Government officials have lowered the Spanish flag of the Palau de la Generalitat, although about fifteen minutes later they have hung it up again, among boos of thousands of independentists concentrated in the Plaza de Sant Jaume in support of the Catalan president, Quim Torra.
The Spanish flag has been lowered from the Palau de la Generalitat at 9:07 pm, a gesture that has been received with applause and shouts of independence from the congregates.
However, around 9:24 p.m., the Spanish flag has once again waved at the top of the Palau, in the face of the disgust of the independentistas, who have booed this gesture.
At the same time, members of the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) have once again hung the banner supporting the political prisoners, for which President Quim Torra has been disabled, on the balcony of the Palau de la Generalitat.
Thousands of people fill the square of Sant Jaume de Barcelona tonight, following a call from the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) to reject the decision of the Electoral Board to execute the disqualification of Torra, by ordering that the deputy minutes be withdrawn .
Torra, who has urgently called a meeting of the Government, has left the Palau de la Generalitat to deliver to the ANC leader, Elisenda Paluzie, the banner in favor of the “political prisoners” and “exiles” that he did not withdraw in the term established by the JEC in the municipal campaign of May last year, which earned him a sentence of one year and a half of disqualification by the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia.
Subsequently, members of the ANC have hung the banner on the balcony of the Palau de la Generalitat, in the middle of a strong applause from the concentrates and shouts of independence.
