Madrid’s roads are brought to a standstill by anti-lockdown protesters | Daily Mail

Madrid’s roads were today brought to a standstill by anti-lockdown protesters demanding that the government resign over its handling of coronavirus.

Supporters of the right-wing Vox party blocked the capital’s main thoroughfare with cars and waved flags, while similar demonstrations took place in Barcelona and Seville, on Spain’s National Day.

It comes amid a standoff between Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and the conservative-led Madrid regional government which last week won a legal challenge against new lockdown rules it argues are excessive and economically disastrous.
