Spain Crushes Catalonia Province Yearning Independence Polling Places Stormed Vote Stopped Over 300 injured

Yahoo News reports Spanish riot police fired rubber bullets and forced their way into activist-held polling stations in Catalonia on Sunday as thousands flooded the streets to vote in an independence referendum banned by Madrid.
