    They are calling themselves the silent majority and have taken to the streets in full force to call for Catalonia to remain part of Spain.

    Hundreds of thousands of people travelled from all over the country to make their call for unity exactly one week after Catalonia's secession vote.

    The referendum has plunged Spain into political crisis, with both sides hardening their positions.
