The National Police arrested the far-right agitator Vito Quiles in protests against the amnesty law that, for the eighteenth night in a row, gathered close to a thousand people near the PSOE headquarters in Ferraz, where no fence is now placed. The road was opened to traffic, something that had not happened until this Monday. According to the government delegation, the journalist for EDATV was arrested in the middle of the riot for disobeying and attacking the authorities.
This Monday’s day of protests is different from the previous ones because the National Police limited itself to stopping the protesters on the sidewalks to avoid reducing traffic because, as they warned, the demonstration has not been announced by the Government Delegation and, therefore, they will avoid cutting Ferraz in traffic.
Thus, many vehicles travel on this road, some reversing, displaying Spanish flags from the windows, and honking their horns in support of the protesters. When the officers drew attention to the driver of a white Opel carrying a pre-constitutional flag on one side and the Third of Flanders flag on the other, who had passed it about three times, he defended himself to the protesters by shouting, “”This is Spain, not Venezuela. ” Likewise, the attendees called for moving each of their vehicles tomorrow with the song “Everyone to Ferraz tomorrow with the car” or “this year the grapes of Ferraz.”
At 7:30 in the evening, a small group gathered on the steps of the church at the corner of Marqués de Urquijo to pray the rosary. Around eight in the afternoon, hundreds of people gathered in the corners between Ferraz and Marqués de Urquijo with chants of ‘He’s not president, he’s a criminal’ and many Spanish flags.
Revuelta, the youth association of Vox that called for these mobilizations, criticized them with the message of Let’s fill Ferraz stronger than ever”.
Every day, the protesters remained concentrated, waving the flags of Spain, some of the EU, and a third of Flanders, and singing the well-known songs of “Puigdemont in prison”, “This year the grapes of Ferraz,” and the general insult of the President of the Government.
Around 9:30 p.m., several Franco flags were seen in addition to chants of ‘face the sun’ and flags with the face of Javier Milei, winner of the Argentine election. An hour later, the demonstration slowly dispersed without any disputes being reported.
