franco-al-nyt

Barcelona City Council and its mayor Ada Colau organised an exhibition called “Franco, Victory, Republic, Impunity and Urban Space” and place a Francisco Franco statue at its door, at the Born former market in Barcelona, now a place to remember those who died to defend the city in 1714. The statue had to be taken away after receiving several agressions by people who where offended by the fact that an statue of dictator Franco was shown in public again. An article written by Raphael Minder for The New York Times explains it very well and also offers a perspective of the complex political situation in Catalonia, with a serious Catalan proindependence process being developped. You can read the article at Franco Took Decades to Leave the World Stage. His staute? Only Days.
