Spain: Protesting pensioners call for Madrid's regional president to resign

Hundreds of pensioners protested in Madrid on Wednesday demanding the resignation of regional president Isabel Diaz Ayuso because of the way nursing homes were managed during the coronavirus pandemic. The protesters gathered at the iconic Puerta del Sol before marching to the Congress of Deputies with banners and chants in defence of the public pension system and against Diaz Ayuso. Social distancing measures were respected during the protest. Jose Ramon Martin, a member of the Coordinator of Pensioners of Madrid, said they demanded the resignation of Madrid's president since «it is not acceptable that 6,000 people have died in the 21st century due to lack of care in nursing homes.»
