WATCH: Anti-tourist thugs smash holidaymakers’ cars with hammers and slash tires in Spain tourist hotspot

WHEN NIGHT FALLS: A video by Arran shows the anti-tourism group trashing holidaymakers’ cars under the cover of darkness in Mallorca

SHOCKING footage has emerged of an anti-tourism group slashing the tyres and smashing the windscreens of holidaymakers’ hire cars.

The ‘Arran’ group is behind the video, in which it targets two different rented vehicles, also attacking them with spray paint.

A crane was even forced to remove one of the cars in Calle Pablo Iglesias in Palma de Mallorca after its bonnet was smashed.

The film is linked to the Catalan independence movement with the phrase ‘Paises Catalanes’, and is soundtracked by Mungo Jerry’s In the Summertime (1970).

At the beginning of the video the activists claim that ‘over a 100,000 rental cars’ on the Balearic island cause, ‘saturation, unsustainability and pollution’.

One online critic branded Arran ‘scum’, adding that it ‘always uses violence against what it doesn’t like’.

Accompanying this summer’s campaign against mass tourism is a series of posters by Arran, which read ‘Tourism kills Mallorca’, and feature a skull and crossbones made from selfie sticks.

Alongside flyposting and graffiti, the group has also been known to pelt holiday buses with eggs and violently storm restaurants and squares with smoke bombs.
