BARCELONA – We ran into our first student protest in Spain today. Many of the kids wore yellow shirts. Most of them looked like they were younger than 16.

They blocked off a busy intersection near the Padua metro stop. I think they were demanding an end to education cuts. According to the Business Recorder, thousands of students in Spain are on a 3-day strike.

I spotted one flare-up between a frustrated driver and the students. At the beginning of the video, the driver pulled up one kid to his feet. He ended up turning his car away from the intersection. Another victory for the teens.

Some cars made U-turns on the one-way street. Scooters used the sidewalk as a detour. On the other side of the traffic jam, police blocked off the street.
