The sixth night of rioting over the imprisonment of rapper Pablo Hasél.
Several protesters broke windows at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Palau de la Música Catalana and also attempted to storm the city’s Stock Exchange.
Hasél, whose real name is Pablo Rivadulla, has been in prison since last Tuesday after he was found guilty of ‘glorifying’ the now-defunct Basque terrorist group Eta and ‘slandering’ the Spanish royal family, the police and the court system in a series of tweets.
I know you dont normally do this but myself and some other Irish expats in Barcelona are looking to rebuild the Irish community here – it was hit hard by the crisis – and we were hoping you could give us a plug.
We’ve setup Irish In Barcelona. Its a simple email signup and we promise never to send more than four emails a year. We could do something more sophisticated but we hope that by keeping it low impact we will get a broad range of people signing up.
The newsletters will contain info about every Irish related event on in the city – business, social, sporting, cultural – the lot. It’s been up just over a week now and we have a slow but steady rate of signups. If you know anyone interested then please spread the word!
