Voz = voice

Los concentrados de la plaza de Catalunya 'aplauden' durante una asamblea de la tarde del sábado. ALBERT BERTRAN

The protests you began to see in Plaça Catalunya this week  culminated in today´s events, on the eve of election day.  Today, the day of national reflection before elections, the law prohibits any demonstration in public spaces.  At 12:00 midnight last night, people across the nation defied this law in peaceful demonstrations including a moment of silence.  The last time I witnessed this voice was the three days proceeding 5-11  2004,  the day of othe Madrid bombings and the general elecations three days later.   This may be worth a view.
