Anti-military base protest scheduled for Gibraltar frontier

SPAIN (Agencies) Demonstrations are planned at the frontier with Gibraltar by a coalition of Spanish groups and organisations on November 13 to protest at military activity in Gibraltar. Before that, the group will protest at military bases at Moron (October 30) and Rota (November 6). The Plataforma Andaluza Contra las Bases is opposed to the foreign military presence in southern Spain. The 'platform' is made up of over 20 non-governmental organisations and citizen groups including Ecologistas en Acción, the Communist party and minority unions. Expected to join but as yet unannounced is the 15-M movement that started the occupation of public places in anti-capitalist protests now spread throughout the world under different names.
