Those who are opposed to Catalonia's secession hope recent pressure from banks and major businesses will discourage Catalan leaders from attempting to separate.

While in Barcelona already held a big rally with the participation of 350 thousand people to protect the integrity of Spain. Madrid has expressed concerns that the regional parliament may vote for a unilateral independence from Spain.

"It is up to the government to make decisions, and to do so at the right moment", Rajoy said in an interview with German newspaper Die Welt on Monday.

Meanwhile in Barcelona, the epicentre of the conflict, streets filled with anti-independence demonstrators waving Spanish and Catalan flags and carrying banners saying "Catalonia is Spain" and "Together we are stronger".

Rajoy added "we will prevent this independence from taking place".

When asked whether this meant he would trigger Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which means the central government can take direct control of an autonomous region which declares independence, he said he would not "rule anything out".

"I do not know how Puigdemont will write his speech, but if he declares independence unilaterally. and the government, through the Spanish senate, has to take measures", she explained.
