Praying the rosary banned in Madrid during anti-government protest

On October 27 the Madrid Government Delegation banned the public prayer of the rosary that has been taking place in front of the headquarters of the Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) during the ongoing anti-government protests.


On the 1st of December, the Provincial Court of Madrid dismissed the appeal on the infringement of the right of assembly. The police have been intervening to stop people from praying the rosary, even arresting a lady who refused to leave, claiming that “praying is not a crime”.

Since the 3rd of November, thousands of people have been gathering every night in front of the PSOE headquarters on Ferraz Street in Madrid. They are protesting against the government of Pedro Sanchez and the amnesty pact he has negotiated with the Catalan separatist politicians to obtain their support in the investiture vote for Government.

Spanish Christian lawyer’s assassination ‘Abogados Cristianos’ announced that they will defend free of charge those who are arrested for praying.
