Thousands of protesters took to streets against NATO summit in Madrid

 (FMNews) -Thousands of protesters took to the streets in central Madrid on Sunday in an anti-NATO march, ahead of the military alliance's summit, which starts on Wednesday in the Spanish capital.

Many of the groups involved took part in a "Summit for Peace" over the last two days, debating the world order and the future of security for different countries worldwide.

Various Spanish unions also joined pressure groups such as Ecologists in Action and Fridays for Future.


 "We think NATO is a criminal organization that doesn't help the working classes," protest organizer Javier Martorell told CGTN Europe. "With them it's just war and misery. So we don't want NATO in our country – that's why we are protesting."

Finland and Sweden have applied for NATO membership and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is also expected to address the organization via video link.

"We are protesting against the policies of NATO and we are against them giving weapons to Ukraine," said a protestee.

World leaders are expected to fly in on Tuesday ahead of what many experts believe could be the most significant NATO summit since the Cold War.
