People who are in Catalonia right now say that the reports about the 892 victims of police brutality are a total lie. By last count, there are 4 people hospitalized after the clashes. The rest is all fake photos and hype. I have no idea what’s true. I’m simply retelling.
People are also saying – and that’s something I know for a fact is true – that there was real police brutality in Spain throughout the anti-austerity protests, and none of it made it into the international press.
