Anti-Madrid 2020 Group Collects Signatures

“No queremos Madrid 2020”, a group against Madrid’s candidacy for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games, has started a website and is collecting signatures from those opposed to Madrid’s bid for the Olympic Games.

The group says the bid would entail costs that Madrid cannot afford, adding that “Madrid’s candidacy was already promoted on two occasions and despite the two failures, it decided to put up its candidacy again for 2020”.

The group is also asking for a referendum in which the citizens of Madrid can voice there opinions on whether or not they want the Olympics in Madrid.
