Thousands of protesters from Spain’s rural areas marched in Madrid on Sunday, demanding measures to stop the depopulation of rural areas, calling it a 'Revolt of the Emptied Spain.'
Footage shows protesters marching with banners and signs, specifically about the rural regions of Soria and Teruel.
The protest specifically targets the "inaction of the national or regional governments," said a statement calling for the protest, "which in many cases has led to the depopulation of its territories and the absence of basic services and opportunities."
As an example, a 2018 study by Greenpeace revealed the urbanisation of the Spanish coastline had doubled in as little as 30 years.
