Seems this is a retweet from someone from Elsene ( Brussels ) but it is indeed from Burgos.
There were some protests in Brussels ( not regarding Covid ) but not on this scale.

The Spanish national TV reports that there were 100 violent protestors in Burgos, throwing rocks at police cars and setting things on fire. In other words, vandalism.

I've seen similar albiet a bit more peaceful gatherings in other countries. I am afraid that this might be only the beginning as "lockdown" spreads. The longer is lasts the worse it will become I would guess which seems like such a no win situation. Hope to be wrong. Stay safe out there.

Lots ;0)
“Bunch of young people throw things at police cars and set fire to litter bins” - that’d pass for a normal Friday night in a lot of places. A google or two will lead you to all sorts of excitements. Doesn’t change a thing in a world with a brand new virus that’ll bite your bum if you give it a chance.
I’ll remain relaxed about street riots and revolutions; in fact I’ll just wash my hands 😉

Many, various, and continuing.
Yes, it happens in Spain. Burgos got out of hand, as the long All Saints weekend is pretty much canceled and that's a major family get-together time. Tons of people out of work, nothing to do, noplace to go, no money to spend. What's amazing is how little damage is done, and how little violence there's been so far.

No nice anyway to see young people using violence
