Update 20 April: The publicity is really gearing up for the Los Cristianos public march on Saturday, with the above poster appearing all over the area to drum up support. As said earlier, and shown on the poster above, the march starts from the Los Cristianos auditorium at 4pm.
Update 19 April: To coincide with the general protests taking place about the paralysis of works to the southern hospital, and of course the public march in Los Cristianos this Saturday, one woman is taking her own personal protest to the hospital itself. Diario de Avisos HERE reports on Consuelo Alayón, 66 year old activist and Las Galletas businesswoman, who is sleeping for a week as from last Sunday in her car outside the building site that should have been a functioning hospital many years ago.
Original post 15 March: There will be a public march in Los Cristianos on 21 April to protest against the continued delays and unfulfilled promises over many years concerning the southern hospital. “Hospital público ya” (public hospital now) have organized the march for Saturday 21 April, and call on everyone to participate who is interested in the completion of the hospital in the south for treatment in our own region, without forcing patients and visitors to travel to the north.
If you want to take part and add to the numbers please do join in. It starts at 4pm from the Auditorio Infanta Leonor in the centre of town near the cultural centre, and will end at Avenida de Suecia and the harbour.
Further protests are planned throughout the whole of south Tenerife, and will take place at 7pm every Friday starting from tomorrow, 16 March, in the plaza Cesar Manrique de La Postura in Adeje. This will be followed on 23 March at the plaza de Playa San Juan, Guía de Isora; 1 April at the plaza de El Médano, Granadilla; 8 April in the plaza de San Pedro in Vilaflor; and 15 April in the plaza de la Pescadora in Los Cristianos and simultaneously in the plaza de Valle San Lorenzo.
