The protest was organized by right-wing opposition party “people’s party” and the party “Citizens”. The protest rally was joined by the right wing party, Vox. They decided to organize a rally after Sanchez was offered the separatists an opportunity to “round table” for negotiations.
The protest on the Plaza de Colon, which was held under the slogan “For a United Spain, elections now!”. The protesters believe the policy of Sanchez betrayal of national interests and oppose the independence of Catalonia.
The organizers announced the participation in the rally of 200,000 people. The government estimated the number of demonstrators in 45 000 , although, judging by the videos and photos from the event, this estimate is somewhat understated.
On 8 February, the Spanish government announced that negotiations with the Catalan parties that favour independence, is discontinued. Madrid said that will no longer make new proposals.
