Local people have had enough of the so-called prostitutes.


The prostitute problem in Magalluf appears to have exploded this summer, with a growing group of local businesspeople, bar and club owners and residents having created a social movement which goes out on patrol most nights in an attempt to move the prostitute muggers out of the resort.

In the early hours of yesterday morning, tensions reached fever pitch. At 2am members of the group confronted a group of the so-called prostitutes in Punta Ballena and clashes between the two sides broke out. Stones and sticks were thrown and the prostitutes initially refused to move on and stood their ground.

However, they eventually moved off and were followed by members of the group in order to make sure they left the area. But the prostitutes had other ideas and relocated to the sea front in Palmanova where further clashes broke out when a vehicle appeared in an attempt to pick the prostitutes up.

The message on the crowdfunding site states "Enough is Enough! I have made this group to make a gathering of everyone who has had enough of these 'Prostitutes' who have robbed, stabbed, bullied and attacked not only holidaymakers but the residents... . Its about time we all gather and show them that this is our home... ." The site is "marchagainstmuggers".

Some twenty prostitutes have responded to these incidents and various others by denouncing aggressions and insults to the Guardia Civil. They sought help from the Médicos del Mundo NGO, which is represented on a local commission set up two years ago to address sexual exploitation and human trafficking. The women allege hate crime and breach of the peace.

Ultima Hora is reporting that five British protesters have been charged with a Hate Crime.

And how long have I been reading about the local government harping on about reducing the tourist numbers in exchange for a better more sustainable number of tourist. This is ridiculous and I fully support the local residents in what they are doing. People seem to be to afraid to tell the government (that work for us) what is wrong in our society and on our beautiful island. Magaluf will have a bad reputation for years as nothing is done about the dirty criminals that are mugging the genuine holiday makers. If we’re not careful this will end up like the costas.

Then to a man you all go on to say what a wonderful president Obama was and how dreadful Trumo is, when he is trying to do exactly the same thing you are advocating for the illegals in Magaluf.

Political correctness ruining our Society.

They have been able to denounce? They have not learnt anything except that their nightly behaviour of theft, attacking etc is accepted in our European society. They must ALL be laughing at us hardworking tax payers. Crime indeed does pay.

I despair of how the thieves and bullies no longer come to justice but the innocent are victimised or sued. The same is happening in the UK. You defend yourself in your own home and you can be sued by the burglar and end up in jail.

Thrives and mugging people and threatening with weapons!! If this was in my city they would be arrested and locked up. Clear up magaluf/palma nova once and for all. Intimidating evil scum

Did the police ask for the papers of any of these prostitutes that made denuncias to the police because if they were illegals,why were they not arrested and held pending deportation hearings.?

Steve, I agree but again the law needs examining. The police here do a good job overall. But, I do admire the actions of the residents. Vigilantes tend to get a very bad press but how can you blame them? Unfortunately they might find themselves on the wrong side of the law soon, though, which is when things will really start hotting up. If residents are prepared to act even though they might face charges themselves, more power to them because it will keep this issue in the spotlight until someone cracks. I for one still fully support their actions. If I were younger and fitter I would be down there myself!

After years of continual harrassment by these women and the groups that control them - including brazen theft and physical assault on members of the general public - it's hardly surprising that in the face of police inactivity, people are trying to solve the problems for themselves.

I'm afraid to say this is a race issue. "No rules for thieves" laments Sarah. Do you think for one minute a group of local Spanish women would be allowed to carry on like this group of scum? No not a chance. It's purely because they are black they are getting away with terrorising Magaluf. Political correctness is ruining western society.
