A civil society group is planning to hold a rally in Tarifa on Monday, August 5, to commemorate the two-year anniversary of a deadly transformer explosion at a hotel in 2017. The demonstration is scheduled to begin at 20:00 (local time) outside the Tourist Office of Tarifa in the Alameda area. Participants will then march through the downtown area before ending at the Castle of Guzmán el Bueno. Localized traffic disruptions are anticipated along the march route and around the demonstration.
On August 5, 2017, an electrical transformer exploded at a hotel, causing a fire that left two tourists dead and six other victims with serious burns. According to the event organizers, the march is being held to commemorate the victims and to push for greater support for the survivors who are still recovering from their injuries.
Individuals in Tarifa are advised to keep abreast of the situation, avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate localized traffic disruptions.
