press of the state / capital, 9/29/1910 - One hundred hooded youths took advantage of the ferment in the centre of Barcelona general strike to cause serious incidents in a day that, until noon, had lived in relative calm. Around 12.00 a hundred youths with black flags broke into the controversial Europe Bookstore, known for the distribution and sale of material connected with Nazism, plundering and destroying the interior. Located on Seneca Street, near the Diagonal, the bookshop suffered an attack that ended with the destruction and abandonment on the street of the material with which they work, including books, statues, flags and even an electrical appliance.
The demonstrators then left in the direction of Rambla Catalunya before the astonished gaze of the neighbours. Before leaving they left a tag painted on the door of the establishment that read 'fora feixistas' (fascists out) and 'bastards'.
Shops vandalized in Rambla Catalunya
A group of about 40 masked persons, on the other hand, were involved in several incidents during their tour of Rambla Catalunya. There they devoted themselves to smashing windows of the shops that remained open, and upturning rubbish containers.
One business that was left worse off in the vandalism was an establishment of the hamburger chain Burger King, whose window was completely shattered.
