Catalonia: police violently charges against firefighters' demo

Catalan police forces violently attacked today a demonstration by firefighters before the Parliament in Barcelona, injuring one and arresting another.

Some 500 Catalan firefighters staged a protest today against the budgetary cuts that will leave the Summer fire prevention campaign devoid of resources, as well as other damages to overall fire prevention. The emergency workers, who wore their uniforms for the occasion, were brutally repressed by the Catalan police, as can be seen in this video:
