Barcelona Join Strike Action Today

Barcelona Join Strike Action Today

The on-going chaos relating to the Independence vote, in Catalonia, continues to have a knock-on effect for Barcelona.

With the game against Las Palmas having been called off and then the decision being taken to play it behind closed doors, there are suspicions that La Liga officials might have something to say about the chaos that saw thousands locked out of the Camp Nou and the word 'Democracy` displayed on the scoreboard for the entire game.

Today, with the protest on-going it has been announced that the players and staff of Barcelona will participate in a strike called across Catalonia protesting at the violent crackdown by the police, on Sunday.

A club statement issued, reads,

'FC Barcelona joins the country wide strike called for by Table for Democracy and therefore the club will be closed tomorrow.

'None of the professional teams or the youth teams at FC Barcelona will train tomorrow.'

Are we entering an era where nothing will ever be the same again?
