The coordinated withdrawal of money from banks which the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) and Òmnium Cultural (both pro-independence civil society organisations) proposed supporters undertake, began this Friday at eight in the morning causing queues in some branches, and many photos were uploaded on social media.  At the time of writing, many people in various parts of Catalonia have begun to withdraw cash from the main banks of the country, a protest measure, or intended show of strength-in-numbers, gearaed to emphasise the number of angry voices in the region after the 1-O referendum and subsequent events. Images of the moment people withdrew money from cash machines were trending on social network, as can be seen here.
