REFERENDUM SPECIAL EDITION 2: 1-Oct-17 TV News: 'Catalonia wins “right to statehood,” Puigdemont says'

Catalonia won "the right to statehood," said Catalan president Carles Puigdemont. This, after a dramatic day in Catalonia, in which Spanish riot officers injured almost 800 people. Citizens massively turned up at the polling stations to vote, despite the repression. Tonight, the government confirmed it will bring the vote results to parliament, for a potential declaration of independence. Trade unions and pro-independence parties have also called a general strike for Tuesday to protest against Spain's crackdown of the referendum. / ACN
