MADRID- Spain’s “The Furious”public movement, arised following the economic crisis, occupied the square before the Parliament on Saturday.
The police beefed up security measures for the demonstrations that started at six o’clock local time and organized via the social media.
While the protesters gathered in the square and called the people from the street to join demonstrations, police closed all the roads surrounding the Parliament with grab rails.
There were many remarkable reading “democracy”, “no cuts” and, “no way to fascism” hanging on the grab rails to call government to withdraw the proposed Citizen Security Law.
Heavy fines are drafted in the law for illegal protests such as occupying the parliament.
After chanting against the economic policies of the government for two hours, protesters ended the demonstration.
