MES Por Mallorca will boycott the €2.6 billion Christmas ‘El Gordo’ lottery in protest at the Spanish government’s stance on Catalunya.

The eco-nationalist political party, led by Biel Barcelo, described Madrid’s triggering of Article 155 as ‘a state coup’ and will halt sales of lottery tickets this year.
