independence in last week's referendum. not everyone in catalonia once independence these demonstrators in the regions capital barcelona are against the independence process which the spanish government also rejects is illegal. criticism of the movement following sunday's referendum has also come from spain's king philippe in a television address to the nation the king accused separatists of being disloyal a charge which catalonia as leaders dismiss. the king's speech was an endorsement of the policies of prime minister roy policies that are catastrophic for catalonia . madrid has appealed to catalonia as leader to respect spain and its institutions that happens happens mr puts demands message is a journey to nowhere because there is no democracy outside the law there is no clear existence there are no rights outside the law for a long time is to put demand has been living outside the law outside reality and
