CALLING FOR CHANGE IN SPAIN
Protesters hold a banner reading “Sanchez, resign” in Madrid, where tens of thousands of people joined a right-wing rally Sunday to demand that Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez step down for his handling of the Catalonia region’s secession crisis. Many in the crowd assembled in Madrid’s Plaza de Colon waved the national flag and chanted slogans in support of Spain’s security forces along with calling for the Socialist prime minister’s resignation. The conservative opposition Popular Party and the center-right Citizens party organized the rally, which the upstart far-right Vox party and other far-right parties backed. “The time of Sanchez’s government is over,” said Popular Party President Pablo Casado, who also asked voters to punish Sanchez’s Socialists in May elections.
