Next year Barcelona?

Or maybe Barcelona has already held similar protests against Israel to the one reported on the Alternative Information Centre site:

PHOTOS: Protest at Athletic Bilbao-Hapoel football match

SATURDAY, 22 SEPTEMBER 2012 15:39 ALTERNATIVE INFORMATION CENTER (AIC)

A strong demonstration for Palestinian rights was conducted during the football match between Athletic Bilbao (Basque country) and Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona (Israel), conducted on 20 September 2012. The demonstration is particularly impressive given reported attempts by Athletic Bilbao authorities to frighten supporters with the possibility of fines and a ban from UEFA. Two supporters' clubs of Athletic Bilbao were actively involved in organising the protest.

Who knows where these protests will pop up next?
