Short Update: Hundreds protest in Madrid against ‘discriminatory’ localized lockdowns against poorer areas with high immigrant populations

FairTrialsAdmin - September 22, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, New criminal offences, Rule of Law

Hundreds of residents in some areas of Madrid protested against ‘discriminatory’ new lockdown measures, supposedly brought in to stem a rise in COVID-19. 

The curbs on movement and gatherings start on Monday and affect 850,000 people, many in areas of lower income and with higher immigrant populations. 

Protesters said they felt abandoned and called for better health provisions. Banners held by protesters included "No to segregation" and "No to a class-based lockdown". 

Spain has the highest number of coronavirus cases in Europe.
