The gatherings and casseroles in different parts of Madrid have continued for the ninth consecutive day to protest against the Executive, surrounded by an extensive police device deployed by the Government Delegation that will remain in the coming days to monitor compliance with security measures by the coronavirus. The protests have also spread to other cities such as Salamanca, Zaragoza, Logroño or Guadalajara.
The applause dedicated to the toilets at 8:00 p.m., much less seconded this Monday than in previous days, has given way to casseroles that in various parts of the city began before 9:00 p.m., and were accompanied of concentrations in some streets.
Shouts of “freedom” and “Government resignation” have been the proclamations in all these gatherings, which do not have authorization from the Government Delegation, and in which the agents have asked the attendees to maintain the distancing measures and not to They will cut off traffic from the driveways.
Núñez de Balboa, epicenter of the protests the first days, has had more than a dozen police vehicles and a helicopter flying over the area. This Monday, members of the organizers, Democratic Resistance, have read a manifesto posted on a street furniture bench.
Like yesterday, several hundred people have cut traffic at the PSOE headquarters to request the resignation of Pedro Sánchez, and this Monday the presence of the agents in the Paseo de la Castellana building where last Saturday was observed unfolded a protest banner of several meters with the image of Pedro Sánchez with the motto “A good government obeys”.
One of the busiest points has been the Paseo de la Habana, where protesters have cut off traffic and where the police have had to issue five notices to dissolve them.
The protest has also been felt in the Plaza de Chamberí where there was also a police presence among the protesters, many of them carrying Spanish flags, while in the area of La Dehesa de la Villa, a pan of about seven minutes was heard, answered with Ska music at full volume by another of the neighbors, as residents of the area have told Efe.
In Alcorcón, a police cordon has intervened to prevent neighbors who participated in the protest and others opposed to them from being found. The concentrations in areas such as Montecarmelo, Sanchinarro or Pinar de Chamartín and in municipalities on the outskirts such as Majadahonda or Pozuelo, where the number of attendees was reduced compared to the first days, have been more calm. The protest has also reached the house of the vice president, Pablo Iglesias, and the minister Irene Montero in Galapagar, although with less affluence than yesterday.
