People wave independence flags just after the speech of Catalan regional president Carles Puigdemont in Barcelona, Spain, Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017. Puigdemont said Thursday he considered calling a snap election, but was choosing not to because he didn’t receive enough guarantees that the government’s “abusive” moves to take control of Catalonia would be suspended.
