After the Japanese carmaker Nissan Motors announced its closure in December as part of its global restructuring plan to reduce costs, hundreds of workers burned tires in front of the plant in Barcelona.

The news was thrown like a bucket of cold water on a Spanish economy that is on the verge of recession, with unemployment rising significantly as a result of the global health crisis.

Nissan’s industrial plant in Barcelona employs 3,000 people, and its closure could indirectly affect another 25,000 jobs, according to union sources.
