No.6 were responding to the caused by suspected assailants who threw a large rock at Podemos' headquarters, which left two women injured and in need of stitches for glass cuts. They were seen driving off on a motorbike, wearing black clothing and their faces covered. 

José Ignacio García, the head of Podemos in Cádiz, also condemned the attack. 

A statement from Podemos La Línea said: “We are not afraid and this incident will serve to strengthen our convictions that Podemos is needed now more than ever.”
