Barcelona Firemen Protest

Barcelona Firemen Protest [enlarge]

Firemen in Barcelona claim better wages and working conditions. This is a snap of two dummies hanging from a rope at the entrance of Provença street firemen headquarters. In fact the whole building is covered with big signs of protest. Barcelona firemen have rallied at least five times recently. One of their major concerns is that the corps is remunerated the same way Generalitat fire department is. I didn't know there were two fire corps but after these recent protests now the city is well aware of their revendications.

    Have you been following any of Di Mackey's photos while she is in Barcelona visiting? I noticed that she commented on your girl street statue post, so you can catch the link there.
