The Big Strike

Yesterday there was a general strike here in Spain. This picture was take in the corona plaza, Granollers. Two women began to yell and give the middle finger to the demonstrators wielding flags and microphones. It was mostly good humoured and many of the people were smiling. A friend and I were sitting in a bakery enjoying a sweet pastry when suddenly, at the sound of whistles, the blinds were pulled down, the shutters drawn and we were enveloped with secrecy. It was rather thrilling.
