Market traders take to the streets

There was chaos yesterday morning in Orihuela when the market traders decided to take their protest to the local council. Fifty white vans formed a cavalcade which moved slowly towards town hall. With horns blaring, the market traders let everyone know that they are not happy about the fact that the market has not been moved back to the centre of the city.

The market was moved to its present location when the council decided to do work in the centre of the city. Now that the work is complete, the traders want to move back to their old location where they say they did more trade.

There would have been more vans in the protest but for the fact that some were worried about retaliation from the council.
