On Dec 10th 2017, the Catalan president Carles Puigdemont gives a speech in the Catalan parliament in Barcelona.

In the streets surrounding the parliament expectation builds up, since he's expected to declare Catalonia's independence following the referendum held on Oct 1st.

After 1 hour delay due to last minute discussions with the other pro-independence parties, Puigdemont declared Catalonia's independence but immediately put it on hold in the hope for a last minute negotiation with the central government in Madrid.
