Translated THREAD👇By AnnA @annuskaodena

Scandal: 181 generals and high commanders in the reserve request ‘respect for Franco’. The military commanders, all in the reserve, signed a manifesto praising the figure of the dictator.

The document, published by Ok Diario, detailing the names/surnames of all
signatories, is entitled ‘Declaration of respect and reparation to General
Francisco Franco Bahamonda, soldier of Spain’.

And it has come out to light now when the Spanish government of Pedro Sánchez is determined to exhume the remains of the dictator and remove them from the Valley of the Fallen.

Among the signatories, there are fifteen generals: José Sierra Rabuenca, Luis
Gomez-Hortigüela Amillo, Carlos Blond Álvarez del Manzano, Javier Bohorquez López- Lóriga, José Miguel Aldea Marín, Jesús Alfredo Ruiz Fernandez, Francisco Martínez Esparza Valiente,

José Fernando Abos Coto, José María Sanchez de Toca y Catalá, Enrique Cano de las Heras, Salvador Fontela Ballesta, Agustín Muñoz-Grandes Galilea, Juan Chicharro Ortega, Luis Casteleiro Villalba, Blas Piñar Lopez and Alberto Asarta Cuevas.

They say in the manifesto that they are paying a ‘tribute to the heroes who forged Spain and to all those who gave their lives for Spain. The tribute is a debt of gratitude and an incentive to continue with the ‘work’ of Franco.

In addition, they attack the left-wing, which they accuse of having disregarded the dictator. ‘After the constant attacks on the person of General Franco since his death, slowly but steadily erasing any trace of his work for Spain in the historical moments that he lived, […]

the political left & its affiliates have unleashed an uncontrolled campaign, hardly understandable if it wasn’t for their visceral obstinacy of revenge in order to erase 1/2 a century of our history, by means of a final attempt to make the main creator of this history disappear.

They add in the manifesto that the figure of Franco has been used to hide the reality of the current territorial collapse of the nation and the obvious inequality among the Spaniards.

Luis Planas - Luis Planas, Sánchez’s Minister of Agriculture, honored a bloodthirsty Francoist military. Traducció de Vilaweb

Luis Planas has been appointed Minister of Agriculture by the Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez. Born in Valencia, Planas was a PSOE representative in the Spanish Congress for Córdoba; a Councillor for Junta de Andalucia and a Spanish Ambassador in Morocco. His position as ambassador lasted 6 years, between 2004 and 2010, and it was during this time when he took part in a very controversial tribute.

A tribute to lieutenant general Mohamed Mizzian, one of the most bloodthirsty Francoist military. It was at the end of May 2006 when that a private museum dedicated to Mizzian was inaugurated in the city of Nador in a house that Franco gave him as a gift. With numerous photos of the dictator. And Luis Planas was the one to cut the tape.

Planas headed a Spanish delegation in the tribute and recognition act in which the second Chief of Staff of the Spanish Army took part, according to the chronicles of those days, such as this one in El País.

This generated criticism from some Spanish progressive sectors. An example is this letter to the editor published in El País itself, entitled Homage to a bloodthirsty military man‘. It was signed by two famous trade unionists from the Workers’ Commissions (CCOO), Alfonso Martínez Foronda and Eduardo Saborido Galán.
