  City Mayors: Joan Clos - Mayor of Barcelona
At the center of this controversy is Mayor Joan Clos.
Clos responded by saying that everything has a price, and that he was put off by what he saw as a new movement of people demanding everything for free and rejecting anything when asked to pay.
Clos feels that the new portions of the new Code have been misinterpreted as attacking the prostitutes themselves; he has emphasized that the real target is the criminals who exploit prostitutes, especially “international mafias”.

The Mayor of Barcelona, Joan Clos, has blamed low density planning for the lack of social and economic life in Barcelona's Olympic Village and Diagonal Mar districts.

 gaudí i verdaguer, inmigració a barcelona
Around 1882 he worked as an assistant in the studio of the architect Joan Martorell, for whom he drew the plans of a new façade for Barcelona Cathedral that was never to be built.
It was there he was portrayed by Joan Llimona in 1901, one of the great pictures of the life of the saint.
According to Joan Francesc Ràfols, Gaudí's first biographer, another essential factor in this "conversion" was his acquaintance with the vicar-general of Tarragona, Joan Baptista Grau, whom he met around 1880, when he was working on the plans for a chapel for the nuns of the Order of Jesus and Mary in Tarragona.

In a press conference, the Mayor of Barcelona, Joan Clos, gave a first account of the events which asserted that the injury was provoked by a flowerpot coming from the building where the party was held.
If we take the first version of the police proclaimed by Clos, it would mean that none of the arrested could be responsible for the blow that wounded the policeman.
Apart from this, until now there has not surfaced any forensic report about what happened apart from the police?s own, so that it is not possible to decide between the various versions of the police and that of the city council (which is co­prosecuter in the case).
