20 September: tweeties (“piolins”) in BCN and Tarragona ports


Three cruise ships arrive at the ports of Barcelona and Tarragona to house the National Police and the Civil Guard agents sent to Catalonia from all over the state as part of the special provision to prevent the referendum, dubbed ‘Operation Copernicus.’ The operation, which involves transferring around 5,500 agents to Catalonia, will last until 30 December. Two days later, on 22 September, the Minister of the Interior officially notifies the Minister of the Interior of the government of Catalonia of the transfer of ‘reinforcement units’ to support the work of the Mossos d’Esquadra, in compliance with Order 2 /2017 of the Prosecutor’s Office of the High Court of Justice of Catalonia to prevent the referendum from being held.
