These ultra-conservative nationalist groups are now under the protection of the Catalan Suma, a unified platform to support Spain. They have also launched banners and banners titled “What unites us: Spain and Spain”.
Madrid (apro). – The Spanish far right and far right, referred to as “Spanishists”, took a more aggressive and retaliatory role in the celebration of Hispanic National Day, Wednesday, October 12.
During King Felipe VI’s formal military parade, all the authorities were present and citizens booed and whistled for President Pedro Sanchez to resign.
In Barcelona, the right-wing parties, the People’s Party and the far-right voices led a parade to the statue of Christopher Columbus at the port at the end of Las Ramblas, defending “constitutional values” and “Spanish unity”, alluding to the proposal for many years. A separatist movement that separates Catalonia from Spain.
To avoid conflict, they went to the statue of the conqueror, which is protected by Mossos d’Esquadra.
These ultra-conservative, nationalist organisations are under the protection and control of the unified Catalan Suma.
They passed by Plaça Catalunya, the Deñez Foundation (for the defense of the Spanish nation), Somatemps and Unidad Hispanista to sacrifice at the Columbus Monument in Barcelona, and later for Virgen del Pilar, in addition to celebrating Mass and Spain dinner.
Denaes stands for the foundation of nationalism as well as ultra-conservative thought. Santiago Abascal (current leader of Vox’s far right party Vox) presided over the meeting.
Similarly, the fascist organization held its own commemorative event in Montjuïc, Barcelona. It was attended by approximately 150 neo Nazi sympathizers from both the Spanish Pike and the National Democratic Party.
People gathered under the banner “Glory and Glory To Our 1492 Heroes” to hear songs that emphasized their ideology. Before each intervention, they performed fascist salutes, and then unfolded the preconstitutional banner which is Francisco Franco, the flag he ruled Spain for forty years.
Anti-fascist group members protested Hispanic Day in central Barcelona, with the slogan “October 12, you have to celebrate (nothing else to celebrate).”
The official Madrid event returned to La Castellana. This is the Spanish capital’s main thoroughfare. Due to the serious consequences of the covid-19 epidemic, the event had to take place in a closed space. The Royal Palace’s courtyard.
This is the Spanish capital’s main artery. It is surrounded by wealthy communities where protests for “freedom” were held during pandemics to protest restrictions on sanitation.
Sanchez was yelled at several times during the military parade, including “Get out, get off”, “Sanchez resignations” and “Squat Down”. These calls are very much in line with the expressions that the People’s Party and Vox far-right habitually throw at Sanchez, trying to make him look like an “illegal” ruler, despite winning polls and government elections under the constitution.
They compared the applause and cheers to the monarch. While the monarch is the head state’s leader, it must remain neutral. But, people on the right seek to have him.
Pablo Iglesias, the former vice president of the Sanchez administration and the former leader of Podemos, wrote on Twitter, “The applause to the head of state and the boo to the government just express an obvious fact: The monarchy is the political symbol of the monarchy. Right and extreme right. No one else’s. An institution that only generates stickiness in that part of the country will suffer damage in the future.”
