Huelva ditches Franco

Huelva Council has voted unanimously to withdraw the Provincial Gold Medal awarded to General Franco, remove him as honourary President of the Council and remove all symbols and other distinctions relating to the Franco era.

The various honours were awarded at a time when the country was under a dictatorship and the Councils were not democratically elected. Slowly but surely, most vestiges of the Franco era are disappearing all over the country.
