Masked demonstrators aligned with the CGT and CNT anarcho-syndicalist labor unions caused havoc in a Zara store during a day of anti-austerity marches and transport strikes in Barcelona on Wednesday.

Protestors sent a security guard flying, burnt a mannequin and stole goods at the Passeig de Gràcia branch of the clothing chain. They also stormed branches of Apple and Fnac in the Catalan capital.

“Our aim is to protest in companies where the workers are defenseless,” said a CGT spokesperson.
