Monarchy Under Attack

Left leaning and populist parties in Spain have declared war on the Monarchy.

In the latest rebuke to the Crown, Barcelona’s City Council voted to rebuke King Felipe and call for a republic.

Specifically, the leftist and nationalist parties united to punish the King for his speech last year in favor of Spanish Constitutional unity after Catalonia’s illegal referendum on independence.

The Catalan Parliament passed a similar resolution, which the central government is taking to court.

Now left-wing populist party Podemos and its allies say they want to continue pressing for such resolutions around the country.

The Royal Household and many monarchists have been quiet about the development, but some royalists see the need to fight back against what they see as a growing political tactic.
