Hundreds of Barcelona residents gathered at Montjuic hill, rallying in support for a referendum on Catalan independence, Sunday. The protest organised by the 'Referendum is Democracy' group saw a celebraty appearance as the Manchester City FC manager Josep 'Pep' Guardiola appeared in front of the pro-independence supporters.

"We are here today to make it clear that on [the] 1st [of] October we are going to vote in a referendum to decide our future", he said. " We'll vote even though the Spanish state doesn't want us to. We have tried to reach an agreement 18 times and the answer has always been 'no'."

Guardiola, an advocate of Catalonia's independence movement, declared that the region would hold a vote on their secession from Spain on October 1, despite such a vote not being recognised by the Spanish government.
