a session from spain to form a coalition for regional elections in december posted the message on twitter from belgium where he's been for almost a week now a european arrest warrant was issued for him and four of his allies they face charges of rebellion sedition and misuse of public funds for holding a referendum on breaking away from spain. in his hometown. supporters say they agree with his decision to stay in belgium while others are not convinced andrew symonds reports. tradition is colliding with politics in jarana the city's annual festival has gone ahead despite attempts to call it off during a province is the heartland of pro secession politics and the home of carlos. despite appearances people say lured here is really happy. that all my family i don't. know i don't know from got there on the i phone.
8:23 am
and they don't understand exactly what is happening out here. and we need. to. do. right we are going to fight but i think it's very difficult in the old city many balconies make a political statement the spanish national flag represents the minority city councilors say they're in mourning over the jailing of eight sacked cabinet ministers in the unusual just black drapes laid on the front of city hall on the flags above. the european union the catalan regional and the city floods the spanish national flag was removed when secession was declared more than a week ago. and the man says she supports pleased being in belgium is not the us
8:24 am
even in the big i mean i fully understand why president puts them on is seeking european protection especially after seeing what has happened to the rest of the government ministers we can't have a situation where we have political prisoners and i think it's ok that he protects himself and he makes our complex more visible internationally the weeklong festival was supposed to end with a firework display but that's now being canceled organizers who had to consider cutting out other parts of the shed you chose to focus on events aimed at children in catalonia culture tradition and politics have always gone hand in hand the children may be having fun watched by their parents but this year's festival takes place against the backdrop of a long good increasingly bitter struggle for secession andrew simmons al-jazeera. a thirty nine years ago today the u.s. embassy in tehran was overrun by student demonstrators who supported an islamic
8:25 am
revolution the anniversary has become a day of iranian nationalism now and this year i made strained relations between tehran and washington a surface to air missile was displayed in the celebrations. reports from tehran. every year the iranian government and its supporters celebrate student day named for the demonstrators who over read it took control of the u.s. embassy in one nine hundred seventy nine. it happened in the aftermath of the revolution that overthrew the royal family and saw the rise of the islamic republic of iran. with the american rejection of the nuclear deal and aggressive rhetoric from president donald trump the annual event has this year taken on added significance was to we've come here to say in a powerful way that america cannot do a damn thing and until our last drop of blood we will defend our country. we have no problem with the people of america but we don't welcome the government of america. each year the old embassy grounds become
8:26 am
a rallying point with anti-american chances slogans. and the event is an insight into the ideology the iranian establishment works tirelessly to keep alive the events of that they are as important for iranians today as they were thirty eight years ago not just because they want to defy the united states but because the taking of this embassy a symbol of american military might in the middle east at that time by students fuels a mindset of resistance that is woven into the fabric of iran's national identity. and we can see how the government is planning for the future. this show of modern military strength is all about linking the country's past with its present and a reminder to iran's critics the missile program is here to stay one that was after repeatedly being defeated in iraq and afghanistan by the people of our region inevitably the us is bearing its more mongering teeth and on the other side of the
