SOT, Ana Maria, Barcelona resident (Spanish): "We think they are infiltrated people, with political gorups as well, who want there to be scandal and terrorism here. This is manufactured in a certain way. 99 percent of us Catalans are peaceful. There is a minority of radical people who may have acted but above all we believe that they are parties like Citizens that live for conflict, that are created for conflict."

Municipal maintenance workers were hard at work in Barcelona's Carrer de Roger de Flor on Thursday to clean up the aftermath of a fire that engulfed several vehicles the evening before.
Wednesday's fires happened as police and demonstrators clashed for the third straight day in the city, after the Spanish Supreme Court sentenced Catalan independence leaders to between nine and 13 years in prison on Monday.
Barcelona resident Ana Maria deemed the fires to be the work of "infiltrated people, with political groups as well, who want there to be scandal and terrorism here." "This is manufactured in a certain way. 99 percent of us Catalans are peaceful. There is a minority of radical people who may have acted but above all we believe that they are parties like Citizens that live for conflict, that are created for conflict."
"Everyone has the right to demonstrate, but peacefully. Because here they are destroying the city," fellow local Laura said.
Spain's Supreme Court convicted twelve independence leaders, including former Catalan Vice President Oriol Junqueras, for their role in the autonomous region's attempt to secession and holding an illegal independence referendum.
