Also known as the Catalan Way towards Independence, was a 480-kilometre (300 mi) human chain, in support of Catalan Independence from (Spain) España. It was organized by the (ANC) Assemblea Nacional Catalana, and took place in Catalunya on the 11th of September 2013, which is also a National Holiday day here in Catalunya. The Department of the Interior of Catalunya estimated the number of participants at about 1.6 million. The assembled protest was supported by 14 non- governmental groups. The human chain followed the ancient road of Via Augusta from Le Perthus (France, Vallespir) up to Alcanar (Spain, Montsià). According to Carme Forcadell, president of the ANC, it was "a symbol of the unity of Catalan people to achieve national sovereignty"

Plans for the Catalan Way were presented for the first time on 19 June 2013, at the Museu d'Història de Catalunya; the inspiration for this was the 1989 Baltic Way.

The presentation included Henn Karits and Ãœlo Laanoja, two members of the organization which staged the Baltic Way.

Three weeks before the event, more than 350,000 people had registered to participate. In total, the organizers mobilized about 1,500 buses and 30,000 volunteers to help organize the event.
