Basque Country: fascist aggression in Pamplona

A man who wishes to remain anonymous was victim of a well organized violent fascist attack by three men, apparently young, completely dressed in black and wearing masks. 

The attack happened in the San Fermin fiestas of the historical Basque capital. The victim fell a hit on the back of his head and when he turned around was hit again on the face with an extensible baton. The third strike broke his finger, as he tried to protect his head. He then fell down and made himself a ball, "like when the bulls get you" remaining that way the rest of the aggression, in his own words: pretending to be dead. 

Eventually the attackers stopped the aggression and left. Even if the attackers were three, the beatings were produced by one of them, the other two acting as escorts only. 

It seems apparent that some fascist organization is trying to gain some ground in Iruñea-Pamplona, because in recent weeks there has been graffiti, a homophobic attempted attack and also another attempted attack against the see of Basque labor union ELA. 

The fascist nature of the attack seems clear in this context and also because who else would make such an organized beating. The victim wore a t-shirt with an unspecified popular demand printed on it.

However the exact nature of the fascist group remains a mystery so far.
