Protests continue to take place throughout Spain. The Spain protests, which started around two weeks ago, have taken place throughout the nation. Recent protests in Barcelona, however, seem to have taken a violent turn.
On May 27, 2011, Barcelona protesters clashed with police at Plaça Catalunya. Regional police used batons and rubber bullets on demonstrators who were sitting on the ground.
Authorities had told the crowd that the plaza had to be cleared out for cleaning, but protesters refused to budge.
Catalonia regional Interior Ministry spokesman Felip Puig said 84 protesters and 37 police were injured in the Barcelona protests.
