Protesters gathered outside government buildings in Barcelona on March 17 to highlight their frustration with a pension rise of 0.25% which, due to inflation, leaves pensioners with less spending power than before. Reports said around 30,000 people protested in Barcelona. Additional protests also took place across Spain and the Canary Islands. Former Catalan President Carlos Puigdemont tweeted support to those protesting in Barcelona, saying they deserve decent pensions and accusing the government of squandering money.
