Banners on balconies protesting against street drinking.


There are more complaints by residents of Palma's El Terreno district. They have more or less run out of patience with the town hall because of the level of degradation and unless there is action before the summer, they plan to take measures and register a "denuncia" against the town hall and the Emaya services agency.

Toni González, who has lived in El Terreno for more than ten years says that, without exaggeration, it is like the Third World. He is speaking up for residents who feel the same; pretty much all of them. He points to pavements and streets in a poor condition, broken and dirty rubbish containers, walls with graffiti, squatters, and filth everywhere.

Moreover, there are still the complaints, as there have been for some years, about adolescents and their street drinking parties at weekends and the resultant noise. When the parties finally end around dawn, there is more filth, broken bottles and the smell of urine. To tackle this, there needs to be more effective police activity in order to fine those taking part in the parties and to protect buildings.

Residents are disappointed by the town hall's failure to match promises it made a year ago. From balconies in El Terreno hang banners critical of the town hall and opposed to the "botellón" street drinking.
