Scores of supporters of the far-right Vox party staged a protest in Palma this morning over the lockdown measures by the Spanish government.

The protest, which took place nationwide, involved supporters of the party driving around in their vehicles to get-around the social distancing laws which ban groups of more than 10 people.

Many of the vehicles were displaying large Spanish flags with slogans calling for the resignation of the government. Vox, which is a relatively new party in Spain, has been an outspoken critic of the lockdown measures and the Spanish government of Pedro Sanchez.

Although I agree with the reasons for this protest, I do not agree with Vox, so I would not participate. Some of the Vox policies and plans are from feudal times.

How sad that public representatives don't have something more public spirited and better to do with their time...they could have been helping to get the beaches ready for next Monday!!

"scores" more like thousands. Why only report what you want the people to believe and not the truth???

Scores ? More like hundreds, if not thousands. And it wasn’t only “far right” VOX supporters. It also included people who are fed up with Sanchez continuously giving in to the Communist/Marxist Podemos’s party’s demands.
