Intersindical-CSC, Catalonia's fifth-largest union, has called a general strike against the repression of the independence process for 8th November. The call follows this Thursday's order by a judge of Spain's National Audience court for preventive custody without bail for Catalan vice-president, Oriol Junqueras and seven ministers, and prison with 50,000€ bail for one former minister.
