Business owners plan a demonstration in Orange Square Marbella

UNDER the banner RIP Commercio Marbella, a number of local business owners are due to meet in Orange Square outside the Council Office at 10am on Friday October 30 to complain about the lack of assistance given since the lockdown.

They say that they have received nothing in eight months from the Marbella Council by way of financial support and that a number of businesses have had to close down leaving families without income but with debts.

In March and April there was talk of an economic reactivation plan with a budget of €140 million, but those organising the protest say that they have not heard of a single business receiving any money at all.

They claim that Councils across Spain have given help to local firms and due to the fact that Marbella is a great tourist attraction (under normal circumstances) rents are expensive as are general living costs so their pockets are empty.

Many streets across the municipality have shuttered shops and closed businesses so they are going to appeal to the Council to do something positive to help.
