Support for Cliff Colman

Just a quick message in support for Cliff Colman, formerly of Glasgow, in defending himself from accusations of vandalism for the removal of a fascist plaque from a wash-house in his home village of Ouviaño. In his own words:

 “My father fought these fascist bastards. That’s why I destroyed it.”

While the plaque should have been removed by the local government due to the laws surrounding the promotion of francoist imagery, direct action by the community is always preferable to hoping a reluctant government takes action.

The full story can be seen in The Scotsman.
