The Clearing of the Square

I don't know the details yet. But today Albert called me from Barcelona and told me that police had surrounded the Catalunya Square and had forbidden more people to enter. They were also, at that time, quietly taking a few people at a time out. They say they are cleaning the square. The last I heard police had begun to hit people who refused to leave, and to shoot rubber bullets. More I don't know.

People are supposed to be going this evening with flowers, to show it is's hoping the cops don't get out of hand AGAIN.

Nothing yet again on the BBC news! What a great photo of the Porxada - it feels weird to be away when all this is happening. lots of love Kate xx
