Catalans join hands and reach for the sky in show of unity and defiance

While much of the western world commemorates 9/11, Catalans celebrate Diada, the National Day of Catalonia. Along with the traditional building of Castells – towers of people standing on each other’s shoulders – this year Catalans joined hands to form a human chain across Catalonia. The Aguilar Rovira family, who are pro-Catalan-independence activists, reflect on the significance of the event before taking part in a human tower in their home town of Vilafranca del Penedès.
