Hundreds of supporters of Spain's far-right Vox party protested on Monday against the partial lockdown imposed on Madrid to contain one of Europe's worst coronavirus outbreaks.
"Viva España! Government resign!," cried supporters as they filled Madrid's main thoroughfare.
"They're cheating us," this man says, it's "a brutal misgovernment" and "generating poverty."
This other protester says she's not a supporter of the far-right party, but feels she has to protest anyway.
The protest escalates a standoff between Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and the conservative-led Madrid regional government which argues that the government's curbs are illegal, excessive and will spell disaster for the local economy.
The Madrid region had 724 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people in the two weeks to Oct. 9, according to the World Health Organization, making it Europe's third densest cluster.
Spain said on Friday it had recorded over 861,000 coronavirus cases - the highest number in Western Europe - and almost 33,000 deaths.
