    Spain: Rise of far-right groups


    by PressTV


    Economic crisis, unemployment, political corruption and bleak future are the major factors for emergence of radical groups in Spain.

    Unprecedented austerity measures introduced in response to the eurozone crisis have already led to a rise in the popularity of far right groups among disillusioned voters across Europe.

    The increased profile of these groups is fuelled by high unemployment figures which far right parties have been quick to link to immigration.

    Spain, with an unemployment rate above 25%, has become a fertile breeding ground for far right sympathizers.
