(en) [Spain] The CGT continues demanding justice for the victims and reprisals of the Civil War to 80 years of the fascist military uprising By ANA (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

It was not an "exemplary transition" but a "shameful deal" to contain those seeking justice after decades of repression and death ---- The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) has issued a statement calling for remembrance, justice and reparation for the thousands of victims of the Civil War and the fascist terror imposed by Francisco Franco for 40 years. ---- The anarcho-syndicalist organization stressed that despite the passage of the years, the justice for these people and their families still does not appear. In this sense, the CGT recalled several cases of state impunity, such as the procedure against the anarchists Granado and Delgado, murdered by a vile garrote in August 1963. His death sentence was signed by Manuel Fraga Iribarne, who would go down in history as "father of democracy. " Granado and Delgado were tortured and accused of installing explosives in state offices in Madrid, but these allegations have never been proven.

The "incidents" in the Sanfermines of the year 78, in Pamplona (Navarra), are another example of the fascist repression that was imposed in the first years of that exemplary transition. The regime police assassinated Germán Rodríguez, a member of the Basque section of the Revolutionary Communist League (LKI) with a frontal shot, at that time only 23 years old. The police, in order to "shoot with all their energy and the strongest they could without killing", also injured more than 150 people.

The CGT, on the other hand, recalls the course of many families of losers and losers who have to seek justice through their own means because the state has abandoned their fate. Zapatero's Law of Historical Memory, according to the CGT, was only an "image wash" but never had the true intention of recovering from the ditches so many people who gave their lives in the struggle for a fairer world.

The General Confederation of Labor (CGT), on the other hand, also criticized the fact that the remains of fascist assassins, such as General Quipo de Llano, better known as the "butcher of Seville", were not exhumed and moved to private places, and that sowed terror throughout Andalusia. It was Gonzalo Queipo de Llano who ordered a whole column of miners from Huelva, mostly anarchists, to be executed. Today, its remains, remain buried in the basilica of the Esperanza Macarena of Seville, under the protection of the Catholic Church and its religious acolytes, the great beneficiaries of the Franco regime.

The CGT denounces that it is not enough to change names in the streets and squares of the Spanish state or the elimination of the Francoist symbology of towns and cities, used politically in this "democracy." The CGT points out that it is necessary and urgent to demand an end to Franco's impunity, both the old and the new regime, and declares that, as a libertarian organization, it will continue to fight for the memory of those who gave their lives for a more just world to continue live, year after year, in our society.
