A large group of illegal aliens and activists protested on Tenerife in the Canary Islands, demanding the Spanish government move them to mainland Europe, according to reports.
Approximately 1,200 migrants and supporters staged the demonstration on Saturday, marching through the streets of San Cristóbal de La Laguna and ending at the city hall.
The migrants claimed conditions of the camps in which they are currently living are “unbearable” and demanded “departure from the Canary Islands.”
“Hundreds of immigrants demonstrate in the Canary Islands demanding privileges and aid that the Government denies to the Spanish,” leading nationalist-populist party VOX wrote on social media. “They assault our borders and violate the laws repeatedly with total impunity.”
“They don’t come to pay us pensions, they come to live off the Spanish.”
Santiago Abascal, president of VOX, blasted Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and his administration for opening the borders while imposing draconian medical tyranny on citizens and business owners for the past year.
“The Spaniards locked up and ruined. The illegals, called and brought by the government, occupying the streets,” Abascal wrote. “Sánchez’s steamroller only crushes law, order, the economy and coexistence.”
Local police observed the massive gathering, but reportedly declined to intervene despite widespread violations of strict COVID measures currently in place.
“We do not understand how this concentration has been allowed. There are a thousand people screaming without distance, and nothing happens here,” one local couple told Canarias 7.
Authorities have been raising alarms over ‘no-go zones’ manifesting where migrants are concentrated in the Canaries.
