Protests at El Prat Airport over the verdict against the leaders of the 1 October referendum


Thousands of demonstrators flock to Barcelona’s El Prat airport following the call by Tsunami Democràtic and block access to the terminals, causing the cancellation of more than a hundred flights, in protest against the conviction of the leaders of the 1 October referendum. The Mossos d’Esquadra shut down the airport train line and the L9 metro line to stop the blocking of the facilities. The Mossos charge at the demonstrators by firing projectiles, among other weapons. One protester loses an eye after being hit with a hard foam projectile fired by the Mossos d’Esquadra. The Mossos arrest Jordi Monllor from Sabadell for an alleged crime of disobedience, and arrest a woman for the crime of public disturbance the following day.
