Several hundred people, mainly young people, joined the rally. The demonstration participants gathered near Atocha railway station to march to the central square Cibeles, where the city hall is located. However, police officers have so far blocked the protesters’ way. The action for “rights and freedoms” was organised through social media, without the authorities being notified.

 

The protesters chanted slogans in support of Acel and against police officers. To avoid possible disturbances, additional police units are deployed in the city centre.
