Protests Against Rapper's Imprisonment Enter 2nd Night in Barcelona

Demonstrators returned to the streets of Barcelona on Wednesday, February 17, for a second day of protests against the imprisonment of rapper Pablo Hasel for glorifying terrorism and insulting Spain’s former king in his music and tweets.

Footage taken by Twitter user @pepeivorrag shows large crowds marching and chanting.

The Catalan News Agency (CNA), which is owned by the Catalan government, reported that 15 people were arrested on Tuesday night during protests across the semi-autonomous region. At least 33 people required medical attention, including a woman who lost an eye due to a foam bullet, and 17 police officers were injured, CNA reported. Credit: @pepeivorrag via Storyful
