Protest could mar Clasico

Catalan separatists from Democratic Tsunami yesterday called for a “massive” protest around Camp Nou stadium on December 18 where Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to play their rearranged Clasico.

Spain’s most prestigious fixture had been due to take place at the Barcelona stadium on October 26 but was postponed following a wave of violent pro-independence protests in Catalonia.

“In an exceptional situation, we should act in an exceptional way,” said a statement from the group, which has called supporters to gather at four points around the stadium from 4:00 pm, just four hours before kickoff.

The rally is the latest in a wave of protests which began two months ago when Spain’s top court jailed nine Catalan separatist leaders over their role in a failed 2017 independence bid.
