The Spanish and Catalan authorities have thrown down the toilet nothing less than a million euros to "protect" and "overprotect" and what not the handful Goldman Sachs old boys' club of mafiosi that is the European Central Bank in a silly useless meeting that they could have done anywhere else and that nobody really cared about.
Nobody but themselves. In case we might not have noticed that our bankster overlords were having dinner with our money, the Spanish state and its Catalan vassal deployed thousands of police agents all around Barcelona, arresting 31 people (but in TV they say that only "one identification") and restricting the free movement of 56 European citizens, who were arbitrarily retained at the border in an equally absurd suspension of Schengen free transit rules.
Only the brutal deployment of the Mossos d'Esquadra (Catalan autonomous police) costed €500,000, money that will be discounted from your pension, as well as that of the cost of the dinner... Or did you think they're paying from their ample pockets.
Draghi: hang yourself. We're tired of bloodsuckers!

Update (May 5): Also from SA, some have found quite ironic that two policemen were required to protect each trash container of central Barcelona. Of course not one was burned:
