Supporters of Catalan independence protested outside France's consulate in Barcelona on Tuesday after police made several arrests during the blockade of the Spain-France border organised by pressure group 'Democratic Tsunami'.
French police arrested 18 protesters while evicting demonstrators at the La Jonquera border point on Tuesday morning.
The autonomous region has been in the grip of mass protests since mid-October after a court handed lengthy prison sentences to Catalan politicians.
