Some of you may have got wind of the fact that several hundred 'demonstrators' walked from Alaior to Mahon along the ME-1 today to lend their support to those who disapprove of the sentences handed down to some of the politicians involved in the Catalonia Independence vote. It was all good natured stuff, a few Catalonian flags and a sit-down halfway along the route for a minute or two. There was some minor disruption to traffic heading into Mahon, but that was it, the island isn't suddenly a hotbed of dissident revolt. I'm sure that if the press pick up on it they might seek to give it a more sensationalist spin.
