Violent clashes in Barcelona and Madrid between protesters and police – European Union

Violent clashes between protesters and police are taking place this Wednesday in Barcelona and Madrid.

The unauthorized demonstrations followed the arrest of rapper Pablo Hasel, who was arrested for writing anti-monarchy messages on the social network Twitter.

In the capital of Catalonia, the situation is more tense, with protesters setting fire to vehicles and dustbins and building barricades.

In Madrid, protesters gathered at Portas del Sol and hurled cobblestones at security forces. A police charge followed and the police fired rubber bullets and used tear gas.

These protests come a day after several demonstrations against Pablo Hasel’s detention that resulted in violent clashes in Barcelona.
