    Background: About 10,000 supporters of Spain's Carlist Monarchist movement trooped up Mount Montejurra near Estella in Northern Spain on Sunday (May 7) and called for a return to democracy in the country, the recognition of political parties and amnesty for al political prisoners.

    Some speakers condemned General franco's choice for the next King of Spain--Juan Carlos of Bourbon-Parma. The Carlists favour Prince Carlos Hugo, the pretender to the Spanish Throne and the brother of princess Cecilia, who slipped into the country illegally from her exile in France to attend the rally.

    Mount Montejurre (2,000 ft., 580 metres) is the site of a major Carlist victory in a 19th century Royalist war. It is also considered a natural monument to the thousands of Carlists who died fighting for General Franco in the 1936-39 Spanish Civil War.

    After the rally, about 600 of the Carlists changed anti-government slogans and smashed the windows of a bark and the government-run Trade Union headquarters in a demonstration in the main square of Estella. There were no arrests.
