The far-right rally in Ferraz on New Year's Eve, where a Pedro Sanchez effigy was hung by its neck, continues to attract queues. The First Executive Vice President of the Spanish Government, Maria Jesús Montero, criticized the People's Party on Tuesday for not condemning these actions and accused it of “linking its fate to the fate of the extreme right.” “[Els populars] “They are unable to condemn disgusting actions like those seen in Ferraz, where President Sánchez was seriously humiliated,” the Socialist Workers Party's second-in-command criticized in a tweet. He did so as a reaction to a letter from the PP administration in which the environment Feijóo confirms that he “does not like” images such as the beating of a doll symbolizing Sánchez on New Year's Eve at the extremist rally near the headquarters of the PSOE, but blames the socialists for not condemning other actions such as Burning Feijóo images during the day.
Specifically, the People's Party stressed that it does not share the events that occurred on New Year's Eve at the Ferraz super rally. Popular sources say that they “do not like what happened that night” and that “everything that does not fall within the limits of respect is rejected and condemned by us.” However, the PP noted that at this rally he “seriously insulted PP officials” and criticized the PSOE for not condemning with the same firmness “the insults directed at Almeida” and “painting the dolls with an image of Vigo in Galicia”. Or “burning pictures of the president of the People’s Party of La Deada.”
Apart from the statements, the PSOE is also considering the next actions to be taken. The Socialists say they are studying “all legal means” to simulate hanging a doll from the neck of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on New Year's Eve. According to socialist sources, this act could be a hate crime.
On New Year's Eve, the youth organization Revoleta called a demonstration on social media – and created a live stream of the event on YouTube – inviting people to drink grapes in front of its socialist headquarters, on Carrer Ferraz Street in Madrid. At the march, a Sanchez doll was seen hanging from the neck of a traffic light, and several people gave it sticks as if it were a piñata.
