Massive joint police operation with helicopter presence is clearing the camp in Barcelona at this moment under the order of the Catalan Interior Ministry so that Catalonia Square may be free for the traditional celebration of Barca football club who play in Wembley this weekend.

Once more the success of Catalan football and the power of its soccer team serve to divert such wonderful energy.

Meanwhile protests have begun in Greece and there were reports last night of several thousand young people gathering under the Spanish revolution slogan in Terrasa, Catalonia's 3rd biggest city.
