FIFTY-year-old Justo Márquez, plans to help resolve Spain’s dispute with Gibraltar by carrying a three-metre high cross on a peace march.
Márquez began in Fuengirola, carrying the ten-kilo fold-up wooden cross which is three metres high by two metres wide.
Hailing from Nerja, the religious fanatic believes that God is the only one who can really solve the situation.
However, he is looking for places to stay, as he only started his journey with a baguette and a bottle of water and a load of placards.
His body is a message board, and he will alternate the signs to say ‘No more hunger, no more war, peace on Earth’.
Márquez, who hopes other people he meets will join him on his march, will go on a hunger strike once he reaches Gibraltar.
“I won’t eat or drink for 24 hours so that God intervenes in the conflict,” he explains.
“I’m not demanding The Rock becomes Spanish or British, I just want the dispute to end.”
In 2009, Marquez walked from Granada to Madrid, for a water dispute with a relative – his quest failed when emergency workers found him semiconscious in a ditch.
