Last Statue of Franco in the Penninsula Removed in Santander

There is still one left in Melilla, pictured below.

This in no way makes up for the terrible blow to democracy and justice that took place when the Spanish court overruled Judge Garzon stating that he was not competent to argue about crimes against humanity, overturn the amnesty law, bring living perpetrators to justice, or nationally coordinate excavation of mass graves and DNA identification of victims.

A great step forward in Spain's march away from the horrible times of the Franco dictatorship.

However, the courts decision means that not everybody there wants to hear and see the truth. But it will surface, sooner or later.

Great blog, btw!
