Hundreds of residents in some poorer areas of the Spanish capital Madrid have protested against what they call discrimination ahead of new lockdown measures to stem a rise in Covid-19. The curbs on movement and gatherings start on Monday and affect 850,000 people, many in areas of lower income and with higher immigrant populations. Protesters said they felt abandoned and called for better health provisions. Spain has the highest number of coronavirus cases in Europe. Madrid has been particularly hit. On Sunday, peaceful protests were held in 12 of the 37 districts affected by the new restrictions.
