An anti-tourism attack by ‘Arran’ left restaurants in chaos in Palma as the activists began their protest.
Arran, one of the groups that form CUP (left-wing party Candidatura d’Unitat Popular), broke into Palma's Moll Vell Marina during the protest.
The group posted videos from its demonstration on social media as around 20 anti-tourism activists descended on restaurants and yachts at the dock.
The protesters held anti-tourism banners and waved flares before running through the restaurant throwing confetti over diners.

The group said on Twitter: “Let's stop the mass tourism that destroys Mallorca, which condemns the working class of the Països Catalans to the misery!”
The attack occurred on Saturday, July 22 at 8.30pm, according to the restaurant, but the videos were posted on August 1.
From its Twitter account, ‘Arran Palma’ said that it would continue “fighting, without fear, because those who do not move, can’t feel the chains.
“Precarious jobs, displacement of neighbours, crowded roads, local shops that close and others that open only for tourists.
