Press TV covers Spanish exhumations

February 8, 2011
By

The Iranian Press TV today features an item on the ongoing exhumations of mass graves in Spain. Includes 2:30 minute video.

After nearly four decades … the Spanish government ratified a law authorizing exhumation of the war’s mass graves.  Since that time, however, a mere ten percent of the burials have been exhumed.  The snail-like process is widely blamed on the Spanish government’s politicization of the issue and its reluctance to open Spain’s old wounds.

    Did they find the graves of my uncle Agustin Valdes , a draftee in the republican army who was shot because he did not like the killing of priests
    and mass attending people.My mother witnessed atrocities like these and so did many people still alive today. Seems like the republicans were the good guys . Thanks to their defeat Spain did not end as another satelite of the USSR. Spain’s national treasure,it’s gold, did end up in the USSR. Why ? This magazine is clearly communist. Read hundreds of blogs and not once did I see the word God or for that matter that
    spaniards first got universal health care and social security in the mid forties,three years before England did.
    Any civil war is horrible,but to be completely one sided is selfdefeating. No more wars , and may God bless us all.

    Se asesinaron a sacerdotes católicos, como los golpistas de Franco fusilarona el único objetor de conciencia, que no era católico: un testigo de Jehová llamado Antonio Gargallo.

    España fue una dictadura, con el apoyo de los nazis, Franco y los generales golpistas fueron ayudados por Adolf Hitler y por las tropas italianas.

    El “dios” del culto católico, el pontífice máximo llamado Pio XII, tan amigo de los nazis declaró la guerra civil “Cruzada”

    Hubo un golpe de estado contra un sistema democrático, pagado por el Vaticano, el banquero Juan March y con la ayuda “desinteresada” de los nazis.

    ¿Tiene usted algo que decir del bombardeo de Alcañiz (Teruel), Gernika, Lleida, Barcelona por las tropas italianas y por la Legión Cóndor?

    El “dios” que usted describe no debe existir, debe ser un depósito de muchos billones de dólares en el estado del Vaticano.

    agitaadorhomologado. Tienes razon. Has vista la pelicula de Guillermo del Toro, – ‘El Labyrinto de Pan?’ Vale mucho. Hay mucho violencia, igual a la Guerra Civil. Barbara
