Madrid gets armored for the NATO Summit, while condemnation grows


Madrid gets armored for the NATO Summit, while condemnation grows

Madrid, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) Sunny and with pleasant temperature, Madrid invites this Friday to take a walk, probably one of the last in the days before the NATO Summit next week.

In the always very busy Paseo del Prado, there are two striking notes: extreme security measures around the Prado Museum and a police cordon near the headquarters of the so-called No To NATO counter-summit, in the “Marcelino Camacho” auditorium of Comisiones Obreras (Workers’ Commissions).

We are entering a phase of alert that will increase to critical on Monday, and although the summit as such will take place at the IFEMA-Madrid fairgrounds, the dinner in honor of the participants in the NATO meeting will take place in the famous museum.

More than 10,000 agents of security forces have been appointed to guarantee the protection of some 40 heads of state or government, together with another 5,000 people who will participate in the NATO Summit on June 29 and 30.

The General Police Information Commissariat, the National Intelligence Center, police officers from the rest of the member countries of the alliance, Interpol, Europol and NATO security will also participate in the so-called operation Eirene, the Greek goddess that brings peace.

In parallel, the three-day counter-summit, which will conclude with a march through the center of Madrid, began on Friday.

The meeting is promoted by the state No To NATO platform and is attended by parties such as Izquierda Unida (IU) and Communist (PCE) and some mid-level representatives of Podemos and trade union organizations, alongside several NGOs.
