The demonstration, scheduled for the 11 of the morning, began in the Square Archduke Carlos de Dénia (Plaza de autobuses) and ran without incident through Patricio Ferrándiz street towards the town hall.

It was on Diana Street, at the height of La Vía Street, when the National Police agents stopped the progress of the delegation. Apparently and, according to the organization, there was a conceptual problem: "we have permission from the authorities to carry out this demonstration through the streets of Dénia through which we will pass, the fact is that we have permission to concentration and not manifestation"sources from the organization said to Denia.com.

This misunderstanding caused a few minutes of tension between the demonstrators and the national security body. However, everything remained in an anecdote and the more 1.700 people who filled the streets could continue with the protest.
