The Catalonian referendum on independence from Spain went ahead today, using the backup ballot boxes the opposition had secretly procured in anticipation of the brutal crackdown on the independence movement by the central government in Madrid, which included snatching elected officials and seizing ballot boxes.
Catalonians go to the polls today in the face of great impediments.

The Catalan government says it has verified 465 injuries at this time.
