Around 1,000 protesters gathered in Madrid to participate in a demo against racism and the surging popularity of the far-right on Sunday.
The crowd protested in the city centre, bringing signs and banners directed at banishing xenophobia and far-right parties including Vox, who significantly increased their share of the vote in the recent general elections.
Spain has been rocked by violent demonstrations sparked by Catalan independence leaders being sentenced to prison in mid-October. Political uncertainty saw the second election of 2019 with the Spanish Socialist Workers’ party (PSOE) again emerging the largest party after the November 10 elections.
