    The rebellion of bar owners has reached Spain: more than 8,000 gastronomes organise themselves

    More than 1,000 hoteliers, bar and restaurant owners will launch a wave of lawsuits against the Sánchez government in March. They have organised themselves in a Telegram group called “El Hostelero insumiso” in order to escape the restrictive measures of the various governments – with the exception of the Community of Madrid. The goal? To save their businesses from ruin.

    “We are ready to open our businesses and bypass the government’s orders because the Spanish Constitution is stopping us. The gastronomy closures imposed by the different autonomous communities are illegal, and this has been proven by the judiciary in recent weeks, as is the case with the Supreme Court of Justice of the Basque Country (TSJPV). Article 33.3 of the Constitution states: ‘No one may be deprived of his property and rights unless this is done for reasons of public or social interest, benefiting from adequate compensation in accordance with the law’ ”

    Faced with this scenario, they also ask: “Where is the immediate help that Pedro Sánchez’s government promised to the sector? Without any compensation, there can be no closures of bars or restaurants. For this reason, we will reopen our businesses to continue our activities, as they cannot prevent us from having the right to work”

    The Pedro Sánchez government’s move against the hospitality sector has caused thousands of bar and restaurant owners to step forward to take the state to court. Currently, more than 1,000 lawsuits have been registered and could increase in the coming weeks.
