Protests in Barcelona

Hundreds of people took to the streets for five consecutive days in a protest against the government’s decision to ease the lockdown differently in different areas of the country.

Some areas, like Madrid or Barcelona, are still in lockdown “phase zero”, meaning their lockdown restrictions are stricter than in areas already in “phase one” – about 70% of the country.

Sanchez will try on Wednesday to get parliament approval to extend the state of emergency until July 7.

With this extension, the government aims to give the Ministry of Health more autonomy in managing deconfinement, while working in collaboration with the country’s autonomous communities.
