Around 1000 young demonstrators gathered in Alsasua (Navarre province) to denounce the perceived brutality of state security forces on Saturday afternoon, August 29. Protesters carried slogans and even simulated the practice of torture in a performance in the main square of the town. No clashes have been reported during demonstrations.
Further protests are possible in the coming days, and a heightened security presence with associated localized disruptions should be anticipated at any protest site.
Those in the affected areas are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, allow additional travel time, and heed all instructions issued by local authorities.
