Riots in Spain over costly city plans

January 13, 2014

Local residents in the Spanish city of Burgos have resorted to street riots to express their frustration over a reported eight million-euro revamp of the city’s main thoroughfare.

During the three consecutive days of violent protests, 40 people were arrested and eleven police officers were said to have been injured.

The plans for the thoroughfare include decreasing the road’s size by half and taking away free parking spaces in favour of a new, underground, “pay and display” carpark.
