Spain has made no secret that they’re over their Tourist Industry.
Yes, that’s right. The people of Spain claim to be just fine with all of their invisible (and therefore ecological) green jobs.
They don’t want the €55 Billion brought in by tourists last year alone.
No, instead Spain’s Balearic Islands just approved cutting the amount of tourist beds down to 500,000. Resort graffiti instructs foreign visitors to hit the road and, “Go home.”
With day tripper taxes in Barcelona, basically the whole of Spain has joined Ibiza and Mallorca’s chorus chants of, “Tourists are terrorists!”
Of course yesterday, Spain’s citizens met some real terrorists, the kind that plow through crowds and wear suicide vests.
Now today, with lifeless bodies in the streets and a country on lockdown, perhaps those protesting visitors will get their wish and no one will come.
