At least 21 were injured, six hospitalised and two arrested as protests unfolded around Camp Nou during El Clasico report AFP.
It started as a peaceful protest.
Then it escalated quickly. The police were brandishing clubs.
The protests didn’t tail off though and the aggression level was probably upped.
As a reminder, ‘Tsunami Democratic’ movement planned protests around Camp Nou to show their opposition to the imprisonment of Catalan political leaders.
El Clasico had already been rescheduled for similar reasons from October to December.
