Around 300 far-right activists gathered in the center of Madrid to commemorate the 39th anniversary of the death of General Franco, Sunday. The Spanish leader lost his life on November 20, 1975. During the rally swastikas and other fascist symbolism were on display, including one attendee waving the flag of the Italian Social Republic.
Organised by several far-right political parties and nationalist organisations, the event also marked the anniversary of the death of Jose Primo de Rivera, the founder of Falange Espanhola who was executed by the Spanish republican government on November 20, 1936.
