  • Description

    A LEFT-WING YOUTH ORGANISATION IN WEST BERLIN YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) PROTESTED AGAINST THE EXECUTIONS CARRIED OUT LAST WEEKEND BY THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT. THE TWO OF DIE WERE FRANCISCO GRANADOS AND JOAQUIN DELGADO, EARLIER CONVICTED OF PLANTING BOMBS IN SPANISH AIRCRAFT WITH A VIEW TO DISRUPTING THE FRANCO REGIME.

    THE MEN WERE EXECUTED BY GARROTTING, WHICH SPAIN CONSIDERS A MORE IGNOMINIOUS DEATH THAN SHOOTING.

    THE DEMONSTRATING YOUTHS MARCHED THROUGH BERLIN STREETS TO THE SPANISH EMBASSY. THERE THEY PINNED THEIR PROTEST ON THE DOOR AND SHOVED A PETITION DIRECTED TO THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE EMBASSY LETTER-BOX.

    THEY THEN HELD A MEETING IN WHICH A RESOLUTION WAS CARRIED PROTESTING "AGAINST RECENT ACTS OF VIOLENCE PERPETUATED BY THE SPANISH REGIME." THEY DESCRIBED THE EXECUTIONS AS "BARBARIC" AND SAID WEST GERMAN YOUTH SHOULD SHOW THEIR "DISGUST AND ANGER" AT SPAIN'S ATTITUDE. THE YOUTHS CLAIMED THEIR DEMONSTRATION WAS IN LINE WITH WORLDWIDE PROTESTS BY "DEMOCRATIC" ORGANISATIONS AGAINST FRANCO'S "DICTATORSHIP".
