About 400 people gathered in Barcelona, Spain, on Sunday to protest against the military intervention by Western powers in Libya.

With banners reading "Nor tyrannies or occupations. Solidarity with the people in struggle," the protestors choired "support to the Libyan people, nor NATO or Gaddafi" and "no more blood for oil."

Pere Ortega, one of the organizers, said the NATO intervention would make Gaddafi's posture stronger .

Ortega said these kinds of interventions produce collateral damage and the bombs are often dropped to civilians instead of military facilities, so he called for a pacific and non-military solution.

A coalition of the United States, Britain, France, Canada, Italy, Belgium and Qatar started to launch air raids against Libya on Saturday. The Libyan authorities said at least 64 Libyans were killed and 150 others wounded in the air raids.
