Police on alert as ‘non-peaceful protest’ organised anonymously via social media on Spain’s Costa Blanca

Orihuela Vista

ORIHUELA Local Police have been alerted to an Instagram account that is actively encouraging a ‘non-peaceful protest’ on Saturday, November 7.

Worryingly, the instigators are using an anonymous Instagram account to round up participants for potential violence.

Online messages call for people to meet at 11.30pm at the Gabriel Miro Glorieta, in the heart of the historic city.

PROTEST MEETING PLACE: Gabriel Miro Glorieta, Orihuela

One post reads: “The objective is to protest violently under anonymity for the defence of our rights – go covered.”

Participants are also encouraged to ‘lay (throw) eggs to defend their rights’.
