Bar and restaurant owners in Malaga province and other places in Spain are will be stopping work and turning their lights off for five minutes on Tuesday at 7pm, as a symbolic protest at the difficulties they face due to high energy prices and to demand solutions from the government. Some will also gather in the Plaza del Carbón in Malaga city to read a manifesto.
The Mahos association in Malaga and the Hospitality Business Confederation of Spain say energy costs are now a major problem and are on average between 3,000 and 6,000 euros a month for these businesses. Although bills are supposed to have gone up by 30% to 40% in general, some establishments say theirs have tripled.
The business owners are calling for financial assistance to enable them to turn to renewable energy systems and adapt their equipment and say many will have no option but to close down unless they get the help they need.
