Dozens of people protest against the amnesty in front of the Latin Grammy gala

Seville, Nov 16 (EFE).- Dozens of people have gathered in the vicinity of the Seville Congress Palace, where the Latin Grammy Awards gala is being held tonight, to protest against the amnesty law and the agreements of the PSOE with independence parties.

The protesters have gathered at a considerable distance from the Congress Palace, protected by fences and by numerous police officers, where the gala began at 10:30 p.m., although artists and guests began arriving hours before, including the Minister of Culture in office, Miquel Iceta, or the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno.

Many of those gathered carried Spanish flags, and some carried banners with the face of Pedro Sánchez, re-elected this Thursday as President of the Government, with the word “traitor.”

On a sign carried by a woman you could read in English “”Spain is a dictatorship. Save us” and another asked the Colombian singer Shakira, one of the participants in the gala, to “bring up an issue against Sánchez.”

Slogans such as “Illa, illa, the fences to Melilla” or “Let Chapote vote for you” have also been chanted. EFE
