Sign the petition

As you may or may not know. For over a week now all over Spain, people have been peacefully 'protesting' against the government demanding change and a fix to this ongoing economic crisis in this country. Yesterday in Barcelona starting around 7am, the police started kicking people out of the square and started beating people for no particular reason. The crowds never engaged in violent activity. Rumours speculate that the government ordered the police to clear the square because of the futbol finals today between Barca and Manchester. The popular Placa Catalunya is used as a celebration ground. But that is no reason to beat unarmed, peaceful protesters. Check out the link below and you can see the video for yourself and sign the petition demanding the interior minister of Catalunya to resign.

  1. That is so terrible. I'm so sorry to hear that. Especially crazy since they were protesting peacefully. Hope the people that got hurt are OK.
