An independentista receives a beating from a group of extreme right


An independentista protester has been beaten up tonight by a far-right group at the confluence of Balmes and Rosselló streets and has required medical assistance.

The attacked has been helped at first by some young people passing through the area and who have managed to remove the aggressors, who are part of the far-right group that have concentrated late in the afternoon in the Plaza Artós and that then they have started touring the Eixemple.

At least a dozen ultra-rightists have hit with sticks and have punched and kicked the young independentistas, in a violent scene that has been videotaped from a balcony and is already circulating on social networks.

On the other hand, radical independence protesters have set fire to a barricade in Rambla Catalunya with Provença street in Barcelona, ​​on the fourth day of protests against the procés sentence.

The bonfire, fed with two different containers and materials, is of important dimensions, while another barricade has been built in Rosselló with Balmes, as EFE has been able to verify.

The riots have started after the CDRs have terminated, through social networks, the playful concentration that has taken place in Els Jardinets de Gràcias, and that there has been a violent clash between groups of extreme right and of radical independentists.

Several riot vans of the Mossos d'Esquadra are circulating in the area to try to avoid clashes between ultra-rightists and independentistas in the Eixample district of the Catalan capital, which is again the scene of the incidents tonight.
