EVERYONE in the Balearics is urged to attend one of the mass anti-terrorism marches tonight at 7pm.
The protests will be held in Palma, Mahon, Ciutadella and Ibiza and will all start at the same time.
In order to make sure as many people as posible turn out to send a defiant message to the terrorists, Balearic vice-president Rosa Estaras, announced last night that free public transport is going to be made available from 3pm onwards.

In Majorca, for example, the trains will be free to protesters and regular, special bus services will be laid on across the islands to help people get to the rallies in time and also to ease congestion.

Estaras also said that the government “is at the full disposition of any families of victims living in the Balearics.” She also revealed that Balearic Homeland Minister, José María Rodríguez, was last night in regular contact with the Madrid government in the event of any devices being found in the islands. Estaras also confirmed that the three official days of mourning in the Balearics will end at midnight on Sunday. “This was a savage attack which has transformed Madrid into war zone.”

OVER 500 people responded to the Red Cross's call for blood yesterday in Palma.
Balearic Health Minister said last night that by 5.30, the Balearic blood banks had collected 181, half-litre bags of blood from registered blood donors and that 260 new donors headed to the various centres for giving blood, including the mobile unit stationed in the city centre yesterday. The Minister said that there is also a waiting list of 290 donors who contacted the various centres yesterday and, if necessary, will be contacted over the next few days.

FLIGHTS CHANGES

Air Europa, Iberia and Spanair yesterday lifted any restrictions on passengers wishing to change flights or even travel dates. None of the airlines were charging for any alterations and Spanair will be offering the same benefits today to passengers on all its domestic and international flights in a bid to help reduce the inconvenience caused by the bombings.

LOCAL HELP

The Balearic non-government organisation ‘Accio Familar' will be helping psychologists from across Spain provide care and assistance to the victims and their families.

HOTEL CARE

Majorcan hotel chain Sol Melia has made scores of hotel rooms in Madrid available to the special Red Cross units of psychologists heading to the city from all parts of Spain to help the victims and their families.
