A protest march against the closure of Alcoa in A Coruña

A protest march against the closure of Alcoa in A Coruña



Hundreds of people, including leaders from the political, economic, social and trade union circles, have gathered today in A Coruña to participate in a protest against the decision of the US multinational Alcoa to close its aluminum factories in Avilés and A Coruña.

The demonstration, which departed after eleven o'clock this morning from the Plaza de A Palloza, comes a day after the governments of Asturias and Galicia began firm contacts to try to reverse that decision.

Also the city councils of the two affected cities approved rejection initiatives.

The workers, on the other hand, have taken their protests to the streets with protest actions, such as burning tires and cutting traffic.
