La Falange has blamed the “policies of multiculturalism” and immigration for Thursday’s terror attack in Barcelona city center. Boasting a followership of more than 11,000 on Facebook, the group regularly shares anti-Islamic sentiment online.
Tributes have also been paid by the group online to Onésimo Redondo, a 1930s Falangist politician and anti-semitic author.
“No one was fooled into thinking that the policies of multiculturalism and #RefugeesWelcome wouldn’t end like they did in Las Ramblas in Barcelona,” a statement on the La Falange website reads.
They have called on supporters to convene near Las Ramblas at 7pm to show “repulsion to Jihadism” and protest Islam.
Meanwhile, left-wing Catalan groups Arran and Endavant have also organized an event near La Boquería, to oppose fascism.
