Protesters in Barcelona in support of the rapper Pablo Hasel have begun to erect barricades at around 8:30 p.m. in the Pla de Palau, with containers that have set on fire.
Until that time there had been at this point the launching of bottles and other objects, and also a group has burst the door of a branch of BBVA and another of Banco Santander, and they have entered both around 8:45 p.m., also in Pla de Palau.
Another part of the demonstration – minority – has divided and has advanced through the streets of Raval in the direction of Ciutadella.
The demonstrations in favor of the rapper Pablo Hasel began late this afternoon in several Catalan cities and, for the fourth consecutive day, numerous people launched proclamations for his liberation in Barcelona, Girona, Tarragona and Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona).
A small group of people have gathered around seven this afternoon in the Plaza Universitat de Barcelona, where another new demonstration was called.
Two young people have sung a rap in defense of the land and the environment that ended with shouts of “freedom Pablo Hasel”, while the number of people arriving in the central Barcelona square increased, where hours before there was already a strong device of the Mossos d’Esquadra.
Almost an hour later, the protesters began to walk in the direction of Plaza de Catalunya and from there towards Via Laietana, where the National Police station is located, and there they chanted the slogan “out with the occupation forces.”
The protests in Girona began at six o’clock in the afternoon before the rectory, led by students who later joined the convocation of the Committees for the Defense of the Republic (CDR) in the Plaza del Mercat del Lleó, where they met about 500 people, according to local police.
From there, they have gone to the delegation of the Generalitat, where they have painted, and then to the sub-delegation of the Government, which is guarded by the Mossos d’Esquadra.
In Tarragona, hundreds of people have gathered in the Imperial Tarraco square, from where they have marched to the Rector’s Office of the Rovira i Virgili University behind a banner with the slogan “Freedom Pablo Hasel.”
The protests over the imprisonment of the Lleida rapper have brought together almost two hundred people in Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona) under the slogan «We continue. We spread rage everywhere ”, in a protest that began in the Plaza de la Vila and has traveled through the center of the city.
A hundred students summoned by the Sindicat d’Estudiants dels Països Catalans (SEPC) have gathered this afternoon at the doors of the Rector’s Office of the University of Lleida (UdL) to demand the freedom of Pablo Hasel.
The manifesto read by the representative of the SEPC Júlia Figueres denounces the “repressive rage” of the last nights of altercations in different cities and accuses the State of “frontally attacking basic rights and legal guarantees”.
