We were contacted today by some of our friends in the Scandinavian community who asked us to publish their concerns about the number of leaflets littering the streets of Puerto del Carmen, showing the Swedish and Norwegian flags. Apparently these leaflets come from a Scandinavian tour company and two mattress companies based on the island.
We’ll let them take up the story:
The Norwegian and Swedish flags on the front page are all over the streets and pavements, you can even find them on the beaches.
People are stepping on the flags, and it makes us sick to see our flags being treated like that.
We have tried a lot of things trying to stop this pollution of our streets, but in vain.
Last winter some of us visited the town hall in Tias, presenting pictures and plastic bags of leaflets as evidence, and everybody up there agreed with us and said this was terrible...and not LEGAL! read more »
