About 30 prison officials gathered this Wednesday morning at the access to the Quatre Camins prison in La Roca del Vallès (Barcelona). According to sources from the Mossos d’Esquadra, the protesters blocked access to the prison at 7 a.m., during which time they burned some tires, but at around 7:45 a.m. they lifted the blockade.

Last Thursday, officials refused to negotiate with the Generalitat unless there were resignations and warned that they would continue with the protests that began two weeks ago following the murder of the head chef of the Mas d’Enric prison (Tarragona) at the hands of a prisoner who later committed suicide.
