The pedicab community demonstrates against prohobition
Pedicab drivers and business owners
have taken part in peacefull demonstrations against the provisional prohibition of their activity in Barcelona these past weeks. At least every week there is at least one demonstration planned. The drivers are upset with the City Hall of Barcelona after their activity was provisionally prohibited from one day to the next without prior warning. Working in spite of the prohibition means running the risk of having their pedicabs confiscated by the police of Barcelona. Since the 20th of June the city hall exceeds a licence for the activity. Already more than 200 official request have been made by pedicab drivers for further information and explanations from the City Hall of Barcelona. The first protest was without Pedicabs but later ones do include them.
