In Arbúcies it was possible to vote normally. The difficulties with the computer system made the school not open to vote until 10:45. In the morning there were about two hundred people protecting the school. The Mossos arrived twice, once in the morning and another time a few hours later. They could not enter the school and left. At some point in the afternoon, the information came that twenty-two Guardia Civil had arrived in the town. The firefighters and voters organized a human chain to protect the crowd. In the end the Guardia Civil did not arrive. For a few hours, all ballot boxes were sealed except for one because of the threat of this arrival of the Guardia Civil. A few hours later, normality resumed.
Politie druipt af voor stemlokaal in Arbúcies. Zo lijkt het in heel Catalonië te gaan. Stembussen gaan over half uur open. pic.twitter.com/R3gr5oz2aW— Koen Greven (@KoenGreven) 1 d’octubre de 2017
