Anti-NATO protesters take to streets of Madrid ahead of pivotal summit

Around 1,500 anti-NATO protesters took to the streets of Madrid on Sunday, just two days ahead of the 2022 NATO Summit.

Chanting "No to war" and calling Spain's progressive government "imperialist," the protesters, mainly from the far-left of the political spectrum, marched through Paseo del Prado boulevard.

Spain's Defense Minister Margarita Robles, however, was quick to point out that the anti-NATO activists were a "clear minority" in Spain, speaking in an interview with news agency EFE on Sunday.

A poll published by Spanish think tank Elcano this week found that 83% of the country's population supports NATO.
