SCRIPT
Hundreds of students took to the streets of Barcelona on Thursday to show their solidarity with the jailed leaders of the Catalan independence movement.
Protesters occupied one of the main squares of the Catalonian capital, Placa d'Espanya, shouting slogans against the Spanish government and yelling at the National Police, deployed by Madrid to maintain the order.
It's the fourth day of unrest in Catalonian cities after nine Catalan pro-independence leaders were sentenced to between nine and 13 years in prison for their role in Catalonia's 2017 independence bid.
