Protesters in Barcelona sprayed tourists with water during a demonstration against mass tourism, chanting “tourists go home” and carrying signs like “Barcelona is not for sale.” Organized by the Assemblea de Barris pel Decreixement Turístic, around 2,800 people participated. The protest highlighted issues such as rising living costs and pressure on public services due to tourism. Similar protests have occurred in the Canary Islands and Mallorca. In 2023, nearly 26 million visitors stayed overnight in Barcelona, spending €12.75 billion, but locals argue this exacerbates social inequality.
