Hundreds Protest COVID Measures in Barcelona With Street Party

Hundreds of protesters gathered in the center of Barcelona on December 30 to rally against new COVID-19 mandates, staging an early New Year’s party dubbed “The End of Deception”, according to local media reports.

Footage taken by David Melero shows people marching in the street before gathering to dance at Barcelona’s Arc de Triomf.

According to local media, the protest was organized one day before New Year’s Eve to avoid a heightened police presence.
