Carlos Javier Palomino

Plaça Universitat. Barcelona 17.11.07

"You don´t argue with fascism, you destroy it."
Buenaventura Durruti.

On the 11th of November Carlos Javier Palomino was on his way to protest about an anti-immigration demonstration in Madrid which had been organized by the neo-Nazi group Democracia Nacional (National Democracy).

He was stabbed to death on the underground, apparently by a professional soldier in favour of, and probably on his way to, the demonstration.

Carlos was 16 years old.

Yesterday in Barcelona, as in other Spanish cities, a protest was called.

They came in hundreds, dressed like punks and skins.

Young and angry.

Bless them.

It ended in a street battle with the police.

But what can you expect?
