Read in Catalan

Barcelona, and the rest of Catalonia, saw numerous protests and roads blocked this morning in protest of the Spanish cabinet meeting being held in the city. Although the protests were mostly peaceful, tensions were high in many places, and Mossos (Catalan police) used some force near the Llotja del Mar itself, where the cabinet was meeting. As of this evening, it's believed 13 people were arrested in total.
