Employees of Nissan Barcelona, Spain, hold a protest on outside the factory.
This comes after Nissan announced it would close the factory in December.
This means that 3,000 jobs will be lost in Spain.
The protesters set fire to the building and stormed the building.
“We are dismayed by the fact that Nissan employees are concerned about closing its factory in Catalonia. This is a step that will have a positive impact on our economy,” said Mayor of Barcelona Laura Campos.
Reports say that despite the lockdown restrictions, they did not intervene during the protests.
Nissan workers have been out of work for more than a month, after 20 percent of their salaries was cut.
But the government has set aside more than $ 500 million to revitalize the country’s automotive industry.
