Catalonia: Nazi-saluting fascists chant “Viva Franco,” clash with police during anti-secession protest

Source: Daily Mail [UK]

“Violence has broken out on the streets of Barcelona as Nazi-saluting fascists draped in Spanish flags clashed with Catalan police wielding batons. Spanish officials organised a unionist march through central Barcelona today in which they claimed more than a million people took part to resoundingly reject Catalonia’s declaration of independence. During the protests in Barcelona, men can be seen lashing out at line of police officers and a second video from Madrid shows dozens of protesters gathered in a group and making Nazi salutes. The crowds chanted that Carles Puigdemont, the sacked Catalan leader, should be sent to prison for declaring independence. Other videos show gangs chanting ‘Viva Franco’ — a nod to Spain’s former dictator General Francisco Franco.” (10/29/17)
