THIS morning the headquarters of antifascist organisation Omnium Cultural have been covered in red swastikas by vandals.
Shocking images show at least eight swastikas spray painted onto the front of the Omnium Cultural headquarters in Barcelona.
The group, which in 2012, committed themselves to Catalan independence say that despite the attack, they ‘will always continue to work to defend rights and freedoms of all.’
“We will continue to be profoundly antifascist and committed to the rights and freedoms,” said Marcel Mauri, the Catalan group’s vice president.
He added: “Despite the fact that some would like it, we will never silence our voice.”
It comes as an antifascist demonstrator last month defaced Former dictator General Francisco Franco’s tomb at Madrid’s Valley of the Fallen with a dove in red paint.
Carles Puigdemont, the former leader of the Government of Catalunya, who is currently exiled in Belgium, offered his support to Omnium Cultural.
He said: “We have removed the face mask and have taught the world what the authoritarian face looks like.”
