Stamping it out

For some time now, there has been a party in August on the beach at Campoamor. The invites go out by social media and so hundreds arrive ready to party each year. Like the bottelon in Orihuela at the end of the Moors and Christian's festival, the one at Campoamor causes a lot of problems for residents.

This year though, steps are being taken to stamp it out. A fence is being erected to prevent entrance to the beach and there will be a strong police presence to stop vehicles entering the area. Since it is illegal to drink on the street, those that do so will be arrested and tests will be conducted for alcohol and drugs on drivers.

I don't think anyone wants to deny young people their right to enjoyment but it cannot be at the expense of everyone else.
