Protest in Barcelona

leave a comment »

Following news out of neighboring València of police brutality against student protests, individuals gathered in solidarity with the people of València. Students were protesting the federal government’s planned education cuts as part of the all-encompassing austerity plan in an effort to rescue Spain from economic calamity.

Crowds gathered before the Generalitat de Catalunya and soon began to march.

In València, 25 were arrested; but the real meat of the issue came out with several videos getting posted to the internet showing police beating and dragging protesters.

Protesters performed a short sit in on the Via Laietana.
