The Spanish government refused from a suggestion made by Catalonian separatists to hold negotiations. They are continuing to protest, as DW reports. 

According to acting Head of the government of Spain Pedro Sánchez, firstly, Head of Catalonia Quim Torra should condemn unrest, which led to dozens of injured. 

Meanwhile, Quim Torra noted that the protests do not show the peaceful nature of the separatists' movement. 

Mayor of Barcelona Ada Colau urged citizens to keep calm. 

"We can not let it continue happening. Barcelona does not deserve this," she said.
