“The State fails to comply with international law in order to protect privileges that generated during the dictatorship of which some Spanish social elites still take advantage,” said Emilio Silva, the founder of the Association for the Recovery of Historical Memory (ARMH), in a chat session with readers of Público today. “The financial support for the Catholic Church is one of those privileges that still persist.”  (“El Estado incumple la legislación internacional para proteger los privilegios generados en la dictadura y que hoy disfrutan algunas élites sociales españolas. La financiación de la Iglesia católica forma parte de esos privilegios que aún pemanecen.”). The ARMH is celebrating its ten year anniversary this week. More here.
