Several thousand people have marched from a Coca-Cola bottling plant in a southwestern suburb to downtown Madrid to protest the company's plan to close four plants in Spain and lay off workers.

Employees, family members, trade unionists and sympathisers left the plant in Fuenlabrada and walked 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) on Sunday to Puerta del Sol square, giving away Pepsi cans and chanting "No to the closures."

Coca-Cola Iberian Partners plans to close four of its 11 plants and lay off 1,253 workers.
