1. Gustau Muņoz Plaque (rutesantropologiques.org). "... It was opposite this building that Gustavo Adolfo Muņoz i Bustillo, known as Gustau Muņoz, a member of the youth wing of Spain’s (International) Communist Party, was shot dead by the police during the Catalan National Day of 1978. This tragic event, given the lack of justice – no one was ever found guilty or punished for the crime – led the separatist left to gather there regularly for over 40 years, to commemorate the victim."
