MADRID, Spain (AP) - Hundreds of right-wing activists nostalgic for Spain's fascist past are attending a rally to honor past hard-line leaders.
The rally, in Madrid's Plaza de Oriente square next to the royal palace, is in remembrance of the late Gen. Francisco Franco. The right-wing leader ruled the country from 1939 until his death in 1975.
The demonstrators also are honoring Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera, the founder of the political movement linked to Franco's regime.
The two men both died on the same day _ Nov. 20 _ and a ceremony is held annually on the Sunday nearest the date.
Demonstrators at the event are making stiff-arm salutes and are shouting insults against the ruling Socialist government.
