Resistencia Balear, the movement opposed to bar and restaurant closures, had planned a form of protest in Palma's Plaça Major on Wednesday morning, but Palma and National Police intervened and told a group of a dozen or so people that they weren't allowed to.

Messages on social media had advised that they would be distributing food and basic products. "If you can't take any more, come and take some photos in Plaça Major" was one message.

After the police intervened, they packed up their stuff and left.

On Tuesday, the national government delegation in the Balearics announced that fines totalling 141,000 euros have been proposed for people who attended the most recent protest in Palma. Many took part on foot, but the delegation had only given permission for a motorised protest.

Resistencia Balear is a fascist group, similar to others in other countries.

So which government actually fined them? Balearic’s or national? And if national so why they fined local people who are under local jurisdiction? This was a local protest inspired by local situation. That’s not fair to let treat that Locals by National Police
