The ongoing economic crisis has sparked renewed separatism calls in Catalonia - over a million people took to the streets of Barcelona to call for independence from Spain.
The annual rally attracted a record turnout in the most prosperous part of Spain, which blames central government for its economic woes.
Authorities in Catalonia are demanding a 5 billion Euro bailout from Madrid, saying that's how much Barcelona has been forced to overpay.
Sociologist Carlos Delclos says the government is imposing centralization on parts of the country striving for autonomy.
