MOBILISATION AGAINST POLICING
The protest against the eviction of La Carboneria collapses downtown BCN About 1,500 people take Sant Antoni against the closure of community center
The march ends with the burning of containers and ATMs
What could have diminished the mobilization against the eviction of the squatted social center La Carboneria – was that it coincided with the day of the growing number of protests against the rising price of public transport – served this Wednesday night instead to boost a demonstration that soon became an expression of anger, with many burnt containers , smashed ATMs and police chases and charges through Ciutat Vella and Exiample .
The start of the march to protest the eviction at noon was delayed until after nine at night to wait for the hundreds of people from seven in the evening demonstrating throughout the metro . It was at that time when about 1,500 people gathered in the Plaza de la Universitat and walked down to the Sant Antoni barrio to show their rejection of the eviction, amid a huge police presence .
