500,000 people marched in Barcelona to defy terror and demand peace

An estimated 500,000 people turned out in Barcelona, Spain, on Saturday to demonstrate against the recent spate of terrorist attacks in and near the city that left 16 people dead. Marchers chanted "No tinc por!" ("I'm not afraid!" in Catalan) and carried signs with slogans like, "The best answer: peace" and "No to Islamophobia."

"We have to know how to speak to each other and understand others," said a demonstrator, Juan Ripoll. "Everyone has to learn how to be more human." Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and King Felipe VI joined the demonstration, a first for the monarch.
