The Guardian selecciona vint-i-sis vídeos d'assistents a la V de la Diada

Havia fet una crida prèvia a la manifestació perquè els assistents enviessin imatges
El diari anglès The Guardian va fer una crida els dies previs a la Diada perquè els catalans que hi pensaven anar els enviessin fotografies i vídeos per fer-ne un recull. La cobertura del diari anglès va ser molt gran des d'un primer moment i ha publicat les imatges seleccionades en un article titulat 'La mobilització catalana pel referèndum d'independència, en imatges'. A continuació us oferim la llista de vint-i-sis vídeos que ha fet el diari anglès

Catalan independence referendum demonstration: in pictures

Around 1.8 million people staged a massive protest yesterday in Barcelona for the right to vote on Catalonia’s political future on the 9th of November, a date for which a referendum-style consultation is planned which still faces blockage from Madrid. The demonstration had a V shape – the V standing for “votar” (voting) and “voluntat” (will) – and its participants also formed a human mosaic of the Catalan flag, with red stripes on a yellow background.
Social media was busy with images of the protest, and we also heard from hundreds of attendees via GuardianWitness. Using images from both, we have pieced together the unfolding of the demonstration.
At exactly 17:14 local time, the V was formed as the two 11km-long strands of people got together:

Some famous personalities joined in, such as FC Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué:
Scottish ex-footballer Steve Archibald was tweeting to inform his fellow citizens:
Continuing with the Scottish theme, messages of solidarity were tweeted:
Catalans are, of course, watching events in Scotland with great interest.We heard from Catalans seeking a secession vote on what they think about Scotland’s own independence vote, and plenty of Saltires found their way to the streets of Barcelona.

We have printed 28 banners in different languages asking for Catalonia to have the right to decide its future. All these banners have been exposed on September 11th
The mosaics included some international leaders and their faces, with accompanying messages saying “Mr/Mrs President/chancellor, Catalans vote freedom” in different languages – here is Angela Merkel’s:
Guardian readers submitted videos of the demonstration via GuardianWitness, a playlist of which you can view below.
The hashtag #CatalansVote9N became the number one worldwide trending topic around 20:14 local time, with around 25,000 tweets sent out in about 10 minutes, according to Topsy, to mark the year in which they hope to vote for independence. And social media posts show a clear V as well, as can be seen on this map of geolocated tweets sent to Catalan TV:
We also saw a really high participation on our site as images kept coming in via GuardianWitness. You can see the full selection here.
