Civil Guard report on the violence that allegedly followed last year's Catalan independence referendum describes how protesters "threw paper planes at police vehicles". The description of these events is included in court documents in the case under investigation by the Supreme Court against the pro-independence leaders facing charges of rebellion.

The report describes the various rallies in the days following 1st October last year to condemn the police's actions that day. Among these, it highlights the protest in front of the police headquarters on Barcelona's Via Laietana, saying that paper planes were thrown at police vans. According to the officers, this was an example of the "harassment received by the officers" and is used by the accusation to say that there was a "violent uprising".


Spanish police also say that protesters shouted chants like "murderers" and "out, out, out, Spanish police".
