10 Reasons to overthrow the Spanish monarchy…

  1. It is illegitimate, as it was imposed by Franco’s dictatorship.
  2. It doesn’t play any role or have any specific function that could justify its permanence.

  3. It is deeply antidemocratic, as it is for life and hereditary.

  4. It is not transparent. The Spanish king occupies the 130th place in the list of richest people in the world, and the 40th one in the European list. When he didn’t hold his position, he didn’t appear in any world’s list of richest people; he came to Spain in 1948 without known or declared assets.

  5. It hugely restricts the freedom of speech and forces to implement self-censorship because of the pressure it puts on the media and the people that are brave enough to criticize it.

  6. It is a disproportionate extravagance. The Royal House expenses, usually skilfully hidden in different ministries, exceed the budgets of some autonomous communities and ministries, like the Ministry of Justice or the Treasury.

  7. The permanent scandals of the Royal Family hugely damage the Spanish image in the world.

  8. The king, as Head of State, didn’t stop the Spanish involvement in the invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya or Yugoslavia.

  9. It shows off its great friendship with opaque, archaic and of doubtful democratic spirit monarchies, like the ones of Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

  10. The abandonment of the Sahara people regarding the Moroccan invasion is one of the most coward and vile acts of the Spanish history and of its own responsibility.
