Spain Protests: Shocking Photos and Videos

by Brian Ries and Joyce C. Tang

More than 100 people have been injured in Barcelona
after riot police fired blanks into a crowd of
demonstrators. The violence represents a boiling point
of tensions between protesters and police. For the past
two weeks, the rallies over skyrocketing unemployment
and the country's economic crisis have been relatively
quiet. See shocking photos and videos below.
At least 37 police officers were also injured in the
brawl, officials say. The conflict is the latest flare-
up in a series of demonstrations over recent weeks
against government austerity measures as well as a
stubbornly high unemployment rate. Protesters have been
camped out in the square for weeks screaming the slogan,
"Real Democracy Now."
