The PSOE honors the '13 Roses' and Youth warns that democracy "is not yet fully established"


The PSOE and the Socialist Youth of Spain (JEC) have paid tribute this Thursday to the '13 Roses' -anti-fascist militants, mostly from the Unified Socialist Youth (JSU), whose assassination is now 83 years old- making a call to "take sides" to "consolidate" Spanish democracy, which "is not completely founded".

This was stated by the Secretary General of the JSE, Víctor Camino, who went to the Madrid Civil Cemetery together with the Secretary for International Policy and Development Cooperation of the PSOE, Hana Jalloul, to remember these victims of Francoism.

"We have to continue advancing", Camino pointed out, encouraging young people to get involved in the defense of solidarity and democratic values ​​as, he stressed, the young anti-fascists did in their day who "said enough to barbarism" and the attitudes that "dirty, erode and sometimes destroy democracy".

Camino has recognized that "nothing is the same" as it was 119 years ago, when the organization he leads was founded, but has underlined that they maintain "the same values", and has taken the opportunity to defend the new Democratic Memory Law, so that the new generations know "what happened in Spain" and do not forget "the barbarities" of the dictatorship.

Jalloul has also recalled "the suffering of all the people that the Franco regime murdered with impunity" and has valued the measures of the new legislation in this matter. "Solidarity is something that we have to work on every day, especially in such difficult times, in which democracy must be cemented because there are many values ​​that can be lost every day," he said.
