Statue of Spanish General Prim in Barcelona

years ago

20 December 1936,

Demolition of the statue of Spanish General Prim in Barcelona. The press reported that a few weeks earlier an anarchist association called for the destruction of the monument, as it “represented the monarchic and murderous militarism that bloodied Spain at that time.” The state was shot down by Joventuts Llibertàries de Gracia and removed from the municipal warehouse.

There was an intense debate on whether or not to relocate. Prim was a fervent anti-republican who bombed Barcelona in 1843 on Mount Montjuic. The State re-established itself under Franco.
