Spain: Protesters rally to demand removal of Franco's remains

Leftist protesters gathered at the entrance to the Valley of the Fallen to demand the removal of the remains of former military dictator Francisco Franco and of former Prime Minister Primo de Rivera, near Madrid on Saturday. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has said the remains of Franco would be removed at some point during the summer. They will be re-interred elsewhere. However, one... Еще protester, Arturo Peinado, said demonstrators weren't content with the decision alone. «We are not willing to be content with a specific measure that consists of the removal of the remains of Franco, since the rest of the monument remains absolutely the same, as a tribute to Franco.» A small group of far-right activists showed up and shouted at protesters, but no clashes occurred.
