Police officers stand in front of demonstrators demanding the release of several anarchists and against the so-called "Ley Mordaza" in downtown Madrid December 27, 2014. Around 10 anarchist were arrested in Barcelona and Madrid on December 16 accused of planting small explosive devices in Catalonia, according to local media. Spain's new "Ley Mordaza" anti-protest bill was approved by the conservative-led Spanish parliament on December 11 despite heavy opposition from some politicians and activist groups, who say the law violates the right to protest, limits freedom of expression and gives more power to police.
