Thousands of protesters marched through Barcelona Monday to express anger at mass tourism and its impacts on Spain’s most visited city. Bystanders dining in restaurants in the popular La Barceloneta neighborhood were soaked when some protesters sprayed them with water guns. 

Video showed diners being forced to change tables at some restaurants to escape the protests, while other restaurants were symbolically taped off by the demonstrators.

Carrying banners reading “Tourists go home,” protesters called for a reduction in the number of foreign visitors to Barcelona, stopping in front of hotels and restaurants to confront tourists.
