Protest

31 October, 2012

As we sat in our restaurant, Mon, in Valencia tonight we were entertained by the passing parade from our seat by the window.

When we saw some motorcycle police followed by two police vans followed by some police officers walking backwards we asked our waitress what was going on. She explained that there was a protest against the government's new austerity measures about to appear.And it did.


The protestors were an orderly, well-behaved but loud bunch of people of all ages who carried banners, let off fireworks and chanted as they walked. Now safely back in my hotel room I can still hear speeches and noise from somewhere nearby.
