Spain, Madrid. On may the 1 st and may the 2 nd streetfights in the city centre. About 3000 people against an unknown number of cops. 80 people hurt (20 cops). 20 people captured by police. barricades were built and many police vans demolished. banks and shops looted.
Police used rubber bullets and teargas against the fighting people. People errected burning barricades as protection against the riots cops who meantime began to beat up every person on the street. A nike store, private companies, banks were demolished and looted by the people. cars burning.
This outburst of anger is also a reaction to the plans of the city council who wants to turn Malasaña in a consumer paradise and wants to destroy free spaces in this part of the city.
but, there´s still hope!
VIVA LA UTOPIA!
VIVA LA REVUELTA!
LAS CALLES SON NUESTRAS, NO DE LA POLICIA!
