Despite warning from the National Police, the anti-summit activists who have flocked to Palma to protest against the Spanish government's environmental policies, have set up camp in the Parc de la Mar, in front of the cathedral. A spokesperson for the Movement for Democracy and Social Globalisation said yesterday that last week they had a meeting with the police and the central government delegation in Palma to clear the protest camp, adding that the Local Police and Palma city council are trying to use the National Police to do their dirty work. All it has done has added to tension in the build up to tonight's mass rally, the biggest demonstration Majorca has ever witnessed. Yesterday was the first day of the “alternative summit” and a number of protests were staged last night. Speakers from across Spain stressed the need for politicians to work together in order to establish environmental sustainability to guarantee natural resources for future generations. Director general of Greenpeace Spain, said that the Spanish government has used its presidency of the European Union to avoid introducing any new environmental policies.
