ElPais.com: Un helicóptero traslada a Mas y a De Gispert al Parlament
La policía acordona el parque de la Ciutadella de Barcelona, donde se halla la Cámara catalana

Indignados rocían con spray rojo al exnúmero dos de Interior

...

Los primeros diputados del Parlament de Cataluña han comenzado a entrar en el recinto entre abucheos por parte de los indignados concentrados a las puertas del recinto y un fuerte cordón policial. Entre los parlamentarios que ya están dentro se encuentra el ex ministro Celestino Corbacho y el portavoz del PP, Enric Millo, entre otros. Además un grupo de indignados han pintado con spray rojo al ecosocialista Joan Boada, exsecretario general del Departamento de Interior en la anterior legislatura. Otros políticos también han sido increpados, y al secretario general de ICV, Joan Herrera, que iba acompañado de Jordi Miralles, le han tirado una piel de plátano. Han pintado una cruz negra en la gabardina de la exconsejera de Justicia Montserrat Tura, quien ha dicho que si el Movimiento quiere ganar prestigio "no se puede basar el en espray y marcar a las personas como si fueran dianas". Ernest Maragall, exconsejero de Educación, ha recibido un empujón.

The first members of the Parliament of Catalonia have begun to enter the premises among boos from the indignant concentrated at the gates and a strong police cordon. Among the parlamentarians already inside are the former minister Celestino Corbacho and the PP spokesman PP, Enric Millo, among others. In addition a group of indignants have spray-painted in red the ecosocialist Joan Boada, former secretary general of the Interior Department in the previous term. Other politicians have also been heckled, and the secretary general of [Green Left] ICV Joan Herrera, who was accompanied by Jordi Miralles, had a banana peel thrown at him. A black cross was painted on the trenchcoat of the former Justice Counsillor Montserrat Tura, who said that if the movement wants to gain prestige "it cannot be based on spray paint and marking people like targets". Ernest Maragall, former Education Counsellor, was pushed.
