Spain: two more fascist attacks on "Hispanity Day"

In Palencia (Castile) a group of fascists attacked a homosexual couple at the battle cry of "get them: they are faggots!" Thanks to citizen intervention and police arrival the damages of the attack could be limited. The same group of boneheads seems to have been harassing an old man before.

The attackers were identified and a denounce has been made. The lesions caused include face, skull, thorax and cervical vertebrae. It was lucky that they were not armed. 

Communist beaten in Madrid

A member of the Communist Youths (UJCE) was attacked by seven facists wearing Falange uniforms, apparently drunk, beating him several times. The victim was attended at hospital for rib injuries and pain in one hand. 

Both aggressions happened on October 12th, "Hispanity Day", one of the major chauvinist holidays of Spain. This kind of attacks have been growing quite worryingly in spite of the near zero support that outspokenly fascist parties get in elections (most of them vote "moderate" chauvinist options like PP or UPyD, and even make a substantial part of their militants, being outrageously tolerated by these parties).
