I woke up this morning reading tweets from @acampadabcn urging people to come to Plaza Catalunya as the police had arrived and was acting violent towards the non-violent protesters. I got there an hour later, along with hundreds of other people.
I don’t scream but I take pictures, because police brutality is not okay, and the world needs to see this. Barcelona sin miedo is trending worldwide on Twitter. So is Plaza Cataluña, Felip Puig and now #confloresalas7 – the power of internet is incredible.
The people have taken over the square again. And at 7 they urge everybody to join the protest, with flowers. I’ll do my best to be there.
Here’s some photos from earlier today, the helicopter is still around.
