President Quim Torra said on Monday that Catalans "must decide" if they are to "settle for injustice, threats, fear, violence, prison and exile" or "resist and move forward." 

In a televised speech on the eve of Catalonia's National Day, Torra compared today's situation to that of 300 years ago, during the 'War of Succession' that saw Catalans fighting Borbon troops and losing their sovereignty to the then Spanish monarch.
