Some of the signs denounced what they believe would happen to professional categories if the bill, also dubbed as 'gag law', would become a law, such as "Doctor - Fired for carrying out a treatment opposing to the LGTB gag law" and "Hostel runner - [The] restaurant [was] closed for not serving a LGBT bachelor party."President of Hazte Oir president Ignacio Arsuaga said the bill "encourages children in schools to question their sexuality [...] and that prevents parents from exercising parental authority."Meanwhile, a bus owned by 'HazteOir' took to the streets with a banner reading "Boys have a penis, girls have a vulva," and urging people to "not be fooled." Last month, the group flew anti-transgender slogans through the skies on banners attached to planes.
