According to DW, during the riots in Barcelona, ​​numerous stores were looted, including a number of well-known brands – Nike, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss and Diesel.

Homemade barricades were also set on fire.

Several thousand people rushed to the police headquarters, after which clashes broke out. Bottles, jars and firecrackers flew at the police.

In addition, a number of historic buildings were damaged, including the Barcelona Stock Exchange and the UNESCO-listed Palace of Catalan Music.

38 people were detained during the protests.

In Madrid, about 400 people took to the streets. Several hundred people took part in the actions in Malaga, Cordoba and Seville. Fewer protests took place in Santander and Logroño.

Pablo Asel was detained on February 16 for failing to serve a nine-month prison term for insulting the Spanish royal family and state institutions. Two days later, he was sentenced to 2.5 years for threatening a witness in another case.

In his lyrics and Twitter posts, rapper Pablo Asel attacked the monarchy and accused police of torturing and killing protesters and migrants. The Supreme Court concluded that Asel’s tweets “insulted various institutions” and “glorified some people convicted of terrorism.”
