Thousands are in central Madrid for a protest by centre-right parties opposed to a plan by the Spanish government to ease tension in the Catalonia region.

The Popular Party and Citizens Party called the protest after Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said he would appoint a rapporteur for talks with separatists.

They consider the appointment a betrayal and surrender to separatist pressure, and want early elections. Like the right, the ruling Socialists also oppose Catalan independence.
