SCRIPT
Protesters gathered outside Spain's Health Ministry in Madrid on Monday to voice their disagreement with the government's latest anti-tobacco campaign.
Demonstrators say medical officials are misleading society by equating electronic cigarettes with tobacco. Some protesters were seen vaping and chanting slogans like "Vaping saves lives" and "Healthcare, tell the truth".
The government of Pedro Sanchez launched the new campaign two weeks ago recommending people to quit smoking and vaping which, it says, are 'the main preventable public health problem in developed countries.'
