Protests In Benidorm take place this Sunday
Several associations of the hospitality sector in Benidorm (ABRECA, OCIOBAL and AICO) have called for all workers, employers and all citizens of Benidorm and the region to take part in demonstrations that will be held on Sunday 23 of August against the restrictive measures nightlife imposed by the Health Ministry. Other Autonomous Communities they have joined this initiative, spurred on by the people of Alicante, and have said they will turn out that day into a wave of protests.
The organisers of the protest have asked that the protesters wear their masks, keep a safe distance of two metres between people and not smoke inside the march. “This demonstration will have all the security measures and is a consequence of the continuous nonsense and lack of organisation and programming that the government of Spain has shown in this health crisis,” said the organisers.
