Protestors have taken to the streets in towns and cities yesterday evening to express their anger at the death of a man in a suspected homophobic attack at the weekend.
Crowds filled squares and streets in Madrid and Barcelona, chanting slogans and waving placards and rainbow-coloured flags.
The protests took place after 24-year-old nursing assistant Samuel Luiz was beaten by several assailants near a nightclub in the Galician city of A Coruña on Saturday morning.
He later died in hospital.
An investigation has been launched to determine if his killing was motivated by homophobia. Three men aged between 20 – 25 years of age have been arrested in connection with the death.
