Protests turn violent in Pino Montano

Protests turn violent in Pino Montano as protesters take to the streets in Seville, one of the southern Spanish regions of Andalucia.

Protests turned nasty against the imposition of even further restrictions in Andalucia as the result of Junta de Andalucia president Juanma Moreno’s announcement to close the regional borders on Wednesday, October 28.

During the protests, members of the public have taken to the streets with some throwing flares, smoke grenades, and even rubbish bins being set on fire.

The region, along with the rest of Spain is already suffering from the imposition of the nationwide curfew that has been put in place throughout the country after the announcement on Sunday, October 25.

The regional group, Pino Montano Fights Back, has criticised the move and has taken a staunch anti-curfew stance stating that it will ruin local businesses.

The protests see the members march under the banner “For freedom and the future of our neighborhood.”
