    "that led to/resulted in major disturbances/riots/civil unrest"

     

    "Llevó a graves altercados " = " provocó serios problemas/enfrentamientos" = generated serious disputes / the protest led to serious altercations

    Llevó= is the past tense for the 3rd personal (he/she) pronoun of the verb. Llevar which means take. It gets traduced as. Bring around, carry off, lead, take along.
    A is a preposition, it has several usages, but here it means to.
    Graves means serious, big.

    So together, llevó a graves. Literally means. It leaded to serious...

    In your sentence: on the streets, proliferated a radical action that took them to serious disputes.
    On the streets proliferated a radical action that leded them to serious disputes.
    On the streets, proliferated a radical action that brought them to serious disputes.


    Hope it helps a bit!

    leaded to severe
