Spain's government claimed the future Democratic Memory Law to dignify the victims of the Civil War (1936-1939) and the subsequent dictatorship of Francisco Franco (1939-1975).

The First Vice President of the Spanish government Carmen Calvo championed the proposed law against the attacks by the extreme right she described as coarse, forgetful and radicalized.

Carmen Calvo visited the archive and library of Pablo Iglesias Foundation - founder of the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE), in Alcala de Henares, Madrid.

'The right does not like memory, it has never liked it, the far right does not like it at all, probably because it has to face a dishonorable memory,' Carmen Calvo said, thus referring to the right-wing Popular Party and the far-right Vox.

On September 15, the Spanish coalition government - supported by PSOE and the Unidas Podemos leftist alliance - passed the draft of the Democratic Memory Law.
