Citizens rally in front of city halls despite heavy rain
The main pro-indy civil society organisations pushing the independence social movement, Catalan National Assembly and Òmnium Cultural, asked citizens to gather in front of town halls to show opposition to the Constitutional Court's independence consultation suspension on Monday.
The decision was made in an urgent plenary meeting
The Constitutional Court has accepted the Spanish Government's two appeals filed on Monday against the 9th of November's self-determination vote decree and the Catalan Parliament's law upon which it is based. This decision automatically represents the temporary suspension of the law and the decree, which could be extended after 5 months should the Court not yet have reached a definitive verdict.

Luis Enrique probably won’t mind being wrong this time. After all, FC Barcelona’s head coach spent the last two days repeatedly warning his players that Saturday’s opponent would be no cakewalk. He said Granada were tough defensively and dangerous on the counterattack. And while the opening minutes were slow to develop once again for Barça’s feared attack, the opposing defence slowly wilted and eventually collapsed.
Levante boss Luis Mendilibar clearly sent his team out with instructions to defend deep and try and hit Barça on the break and before Neymar broke the deadlock, it almost worked with only a brilliant last gasp tackle from Rakitic keeping out Casedesus on 14 minutes and Morales just failing to connect with a header soon afterwards. Barça continued to probe, with Neymar and Alba creating danger down the left.
