Spain: Police Violence Against Peaceful Demonstrators in Barcelona

Categories: Western Europe, Spain, Breaking News, Citizen Media, Protest

Friday, May 27, 7 pm had not yet arrived when the police raided Catalunya Square in the center of Barcelona where  the camp of “outraged” of 15 May were located. The hundreds of protesters in attendance refused to leave and the situation escalated. Many calls were made through social networks and access to the Square was quickly blocked by a growing crowd who supported the people who slept there.  Photo and video [1] evidence of the brutalities quickly surfaced.
