Spain: Why we ask for a Monarchy Referendum?
Did you know that the current Spanish Monarchy
was imposed by the fascist dictator Francisco Franco in 1975?
There is a possibility of Juan Carlos de Borbon abdicating,
in favour of his son Felipe, who would reign as Felipe VI.
Many Spanish people demand a democratic free Referendum
so we can decide on our state model:
a Monarchy or Spanish Federal Republic.
We must leave behind Franco’s shadow heritage!
We want to discuss and debate this!
