Demonstrators clashed with police during a protest against the eviction of squatters from a building in Barcelona on Wednesday.

Police evicted activists from the iconic Can Vies center on Monday, occupied since 1997, following a court order when negotiations broke down between the city of Barcelona and the youth occupying the building.

The building was demolished as soon as the squatters were evicted.
