Pope flies into Madrid protest

From the very first moment, the tension by the police was tangible, then they started pushing and shoving, with no lack of insults and provocations from Catholics to the point of spitting and assaulting the protesters as the demonstration marched on, it ended when the police decided to make a late charge against protesters.

For several hours passing through the main streets of Madrid was banned, then the  protesters clased with the police in and around Madrid’s the Puerta del Sol.

A Facebook page, “Yo No Te Espero!”, created against the Pope’s vist attracted more than 81,000 members by Thursday afternoon.

At a time of high youth unemployment in Spain like elsewhere in Europe; its a bit of a joke that the centerpiece of the four day trip will be World Youth Day.
