Read in Catalan

The images of the police repression of last year's Catalan referendum haven't lost their power, ten months later. Now, a video has been shared on social media compiling some of the most powerful images. The audio, however, isn't the original. It's been replaced instead with audio from videos of people in the rest of Spain cheering off police as they left for Catalonia in the days before the vote.

The juxtaposition means that, as National Police and Civil Guard agents shoot rubber bullets and hit members of the public with their batons, other people can be heard shouting "a por ellos" (go get 'em), "no estáis solo" (you're not alone) and "viva España".
