Fuengirola Local Police, firefighters protest in Los Boliches [Video]

Members of the local police force and firefighters were out in force in front of the church in Los Boliches, Fuengirola on Tuesday evening protesting against their treatment by the local municipality.

They have received no increase in salary for eight years, despite the fact that Fuengirola Despierta exposed the overly large salaries of the mayoress and other councillors back in 2011. In fact, at some stage their salaries were even cut.

Now working under a new PP mayoress, Ana Mula, they have had enough and are saying that she has not fulfilled agreements made relating to their salaries and other benefits.

Spanish News in English was there when they protested on two occasions back in February 2013 and was fortunate enough to be there again this evening.  As at 8:14 pm this evening, the drumming, whistling and sirens continue.
