In addition, García Esteban himself refers to the aforementioned MMA event as “a little bit of pre-Barça-Madrid fuss”, in reference to the football match that takes place the day after, on October 24.
In this town, the Alternative Alovera group governs together with the PP and a councilor from Vox, with Purificación Tortuero as mayor. The Deputy Mayor and Councilor for Sports, Juan Carlos Martín, explained to elDiarioclm.es that the first poster has already been rectified and another has been drawn up without that contact.

On his arm there are different tattoos such as the acronym AHTR (“Adolf Hitler Was Right” in Nazi symbols) or the black sun, a Nordic symbol that the Nazis adopted. For example, it is found in the former ‘Obergruppenführersaal’ (the room intended for SS generals) in the north tower of Wewelsburg Castle (Germany) which became the source of power for the so-called ‘Aryan race’.

The Municipal Group of Unidas Podemos de Alovera has requested the removal of any link to profiles that do not respect human rights, such as the cartel’s Instagram account, having verified that “whoever gives the seminar has no ties, at least visible, with groups neo-Nazis “. It has also requested that the City Council issue “the pertinent explanations of the reason why a poster made outside the institution has not been reviewed”, since “errors like this can damage the rights and freedoms of neighbors in our people, giving a clear example with these profiles of violation of human rights towards vulnerable groups, a deterioration of the Alovera Pro Sports brand and serious damage to the image of the institution itself “.
The Forum for Memory has also joined the petition. They consider that the plaque that three years ago paid homage to a neighbor of Alovera murdered in the Mauthausen concentration camp is “incompatible” with giving public space “to an openly neo-Nazi individual.”
