Thousands of striking taxi drivers marched through the center of Barcelona on Thursday, protesting against taxi ride-sharing services Uber and Cabify. The demonstrators walked with flares and threw fireworks and colored-gas canisters, bringing the city to a halt. The crowd rallied outside City Hall, where they hurled eggs and other objects through the gates. A similar protest took place in Madrid.
