At six in the afternoon of the previous day the school is open. They will not close.
The afternoon before, activities are held to ensure the centre can remain occupied (video by @joancguerrero).
The night before, people practice making a human chain to know how to do if the police arrive.
The Mossos d'Esquadra take notes. They see that there are about 250 people concentrated and that it is not possible to enter the centre.
International observers are urged not to leave the school and, in the face of the extreme violence of the police, they come to stay.
More people come to protect the polling station.
