A group of unpaid police officers take over entrance to municipal offices

LA LÍNEA (Agencies) As though closing the border were not enough, a group of unpaid Local Police officers have taken over the entrance to the Convention Centre, also in protest against non-payment of their salaries and in common with the rest of their fellow municipal employees. This group risk disciplinary procedures against them as they are not allowed by law to go on strike, though there is a question as to whether camping out in the Palacio de Congrasos amounts to a strike. The total amount owed to the workers will soon amount to €10 million; some haven't been paid for over six months! (Note: How are these people supposed to pay for their mortgages, let alone food?)
