The Spanish law of historic memory declares illegal and forces the removal of all symbols of the fascist dictatorship. Armed with that legal support and a red spray José Gallego, 72, began destroying the names of the fascists attached to the wall of the church of his town, Aspe.
He had previously asked two successive municipal governments (of three different parties) to do it but they ignored him. Being member of the Socialist Party, he feels betrayed by his mayor (same party), whom he disses as coward, scared of meddling with the Catholic Church.
You go to Germany and there is not a single Hitlerian symbol. Spain is full of them. Why that resistance?, he protests.
