Mrs Nerea Melgosa, Minister of Equality, Justice and Social Policies of the Basque Government, participated this morning in the commemorative event for the Day of Remembrance and Recognition of the Victims of Francoism organized by the Vitoria-Gasteiz city council. At the intersection of Postas street and Lehendakari Agirre square, next to the sculpture 'Isiltasunean oihuka', various Araba institutional representations have laid flowers and kept a minute of silence in memory of those who were executed after the coup d'état of 1936.

Melgosa has remembered the mayor of Gasteiz, Teodoro González de Zárate, shot on March 31, 1936, in the port of Azazeta, on the road to Estella-Lizarra, by a group of Falangists, along with fifteen others detained by order of the coup general Emilio Mola.

“Not only are deaths, violence, seizures, and threats condemnable; also, those that occurred in various scenarios of that war and its preludes. So are all types of past and current violence. That is something that new generations must be very clear about in the definition of a supportive and open society,” said Nerea Melgosa.
