Letters to the Editor
Readers express thanks, concern and comments on Majorca.
“The local authorities should remember that stories about Majorca are reported in the foreign media...”
Arran staged a protest at the beach in Arenal.
Palma town hall defends the right to protest.
The number of people taking part in the protest was small, and it was only brief.
Tourism minister Biel Barceló spoke to Jason Moore and Humphrey Carter last week about so-called anti-tourism, the tourist tax and the government's sustainable tourism plans.
Everyone seemed to be demonstrating for one reason or another last week: there was an unnecessary row over the tourist tax; a survey found that the public didn't think there were too many tourists; another figure was put on losses caused by the rentals legislation; and some tortoises would have been very happy.
Reports in the British press, including one that refers to Britons being "hated", have relied on comments lifted straight from the Bulletin website.
All eyes were on Catalonia; Majorcan nationalism took to the beaches; there was an absence of condemnation for anti-tourism; rentals legislation was "terror"; and Palma had a curious day with no cars.
"Who can be against condemning any violent action, vandalism or phobic demonstration against the interests of the Balearics?"
"Attacks against tourists should be condemned in a clear and forceful manner."
Majorca once again paid its respects to the victims of terrorism; the national government was thinking about a constitutional challenge to the Balearic rentals' legislation; there was some more anti-tourism and there were more plans for tackling tourism's excesses.
The high-summer season was hit by the rentals' legislation; the PP's Rafael Hernando mocked the limit on tourist accommodation places; everyone was having a say about the anti-tourism protests; and the unions were threatening more airport disruption.
The fine is for unauthorised protest and use of pyrotechnic items. Meanwhile, the state attorney-general is getting involved in the anti-tourism protests.
The travel agencies federation believes that statements by certain politicians have been a cause of the recent spate of anti-tourism protests.
