Overnight, some people even camped out in Plaça Catalunya square and have started a hunger strike as well, emulating the Maidan revolution seen in Ukraine in 2014.
Protests first began outside the Russian consulate on Thursday morning, just hours after Putin’s forces first began their invasion.
Later demonstrations took place in the city center and in both locations again on Friday.
