Thousands of people demonstrate in Andalusian capitals against fascism

Several thousand people have demonstrated this afternoon on the streets of Seville, Granada and Malaga convened through social networks as a protest against fascism after the results of the Andalusian elections yesterday, in which Vox, party against which they have chanted slogans, achieved twelve deputies.

According to police sources, the concentration in Granada has begun in the central Plaza del Carmen with about 500 participants, although as the afternoon has advanced, the same sources have raised to 4,000 the number of demonstrators, which has led agents to cut Reyes Católicos street and divert traffic along the Camino de Ronda.

The protest, closely watched by the National and Local Police, has been summoned by antifascist groups, which have carried Republican and Andalusian flags, among others, and have launched slogans against fascism.

In Seville, the gathering, convened with the slogan "Andalusia is no place for fascism", was convened at 6:00 pm in the Plaza de la Encarnación, next to the monument known as Las Setas, where more than 2,000 people have gathered , that have been directed by the Fair street until arriving at the Andalusian Parliament.

Subsequently, they went through the historic Ronda until reaching the Palacio de San Telmo, seat of the Presidency of the Junta de Andalucía, and then the Rector of the University of Seville, which has forced several traffic stops.

In Malaga, a thousand people, according to police sources, mostly young people, have attended the anti-fascist convocation that has traveled the main streets of the city center.

The protest, which has been convened by different feminist and leftist groups, has started from the central plaza of the Constitution and has crossed Calle Larios, where they have held a sit-down and phrases have been chanted against the entry of Vox into the Andalusian Parliament.

"Your hate does not fit in our streets" and "You, fascists, you are the terrorists" are some slogans chanted during the march, which has toured the Park Walk guarded by the National and Local Police.

People of all ages have adhered to the march as it progresses and the participants have carried Republican, Andalusian and other collective flags, such as the LGTBI.

Between the placards of the demonstrators could be read phrases like "Do not forget to change the time, at two it will be 1936" or "380,000 Andalusians have voted that they would return to shoot Lorca".

The march has been developed before hundreds of people who came to the center to make Christmas shopping and just before the start of one of the passes of the light and music show that these days take place on Calle Larios, Malaga's main thoroughfare.
