A COSTA BLANCA town hall has painted one of its street benches purple, the colour representing feminism and equality in Spain.

Villajoyosa town hall wants to bring the equality issue to the public’s attention, said councillor Pascal Amigo.

The purple bench in Calle Colon in the town centre bears the message “Choose Equality” painted in white in Spanish and Valenciano.

“We hope this bench will make the people think,” said Amigo who urged other towns to follow La Vila’s example.
