ANTI-TOURISM campaigners in Spain have staged the latest in a series of publicity stunts against mass tourism.
Protestors in Mallorca disrupted the route of a sightseeing tour bus packed full of holidaymakers who had their tour experience ruined.
The campaigners claim the island’s capital Palma is fast becoming a “theme park” and brandished signs reading “Stop mass tourism!”
Known as the Committee for the Defence of the Republic of Mallorca (CDR), the group posed as tourists within the bus before revealing yellow T-shirts, blowing on whistles and disrupting the route of the bus as it slowly made its way around Palma de Mallorca.
The CDR claim this “symbolic act” targeted the holidaymakers on the tourist bus as a way to showcase “the theme park that Palma has become”.
The group delivered a statement claiming the island was being “gobbled up” by mass tourism.
The protest lasted for more than an hour before the CDR dispersed.
