Five young people say they were attacked in Barcelona on Sunday morning by extreme rightists who had just left the Spanish nationalist demonstration being held in Barcelona. Some of those assaulted were members of a pro-Catalan independence group, the Nou Barris CDR (Committee for Defence of the Republic), which published several photographs of the bruises the five suffered in a series of tweets.
One of the right-wing attackers also responded to the presence of the youths with homophobic insults and spitting, the twitter messages add. The incidents took place in the Clot metro station.

Translation of above tweet: These are the aggressors, photos taken by people in the metro who offered support to those who had been assaulted. These are people who go to demonstrations like today's one in Avinguda Paral·lel with the group Convivencia Cívica Catalana and political party VOX.
A second assault took place in Carrer Blai, in the Poble Sec neighbourhood, where a local resident who was having a drink at a terrace bar suffered a head injury. In this case as well, the assailant was one of those passing by who had attended the unionist event, held nearby.
