Fabrizio Alvarez, 19, accompanies a friend to join the long queue formed by dozens of people, mostly young immigrants from Latin America, at the La Farga shopping center in Hospitalet. “But what is this? What's going on? What are they offering here?”, ask curious merchants as they wander through the large area.

More than a hundred users had to be patient as they had to wait up to two hours to register.
