Thousands of protesters blocked roads and a tunnel in Barcelona's port area on Friday, during a general strike called by pro-independence unions to oppose Monday's Supreme Court ruling against nine separatist leaders.
Clashes erupted as riot police charged the first row of protesters with batons and retrieved one banner. Protesters then responded throwing eggs at police officers.
Crowds later moved on to block traffic in a tunnel and shut down a street for nearly one hour.
