Question for written answer E-005844-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Izaskun Bilbao Barandica (ALDE)

 Subject:  Action by the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) in relation to preventing the radicalisation of extreme-right organisations
 Answer in writing 

On the 43th anniversary of the death of the dictator Francisco Franco, many extreme-right groups have organised acts of glorification and advocacy for the genocidal regime in Spain, and have not been curbed from doing so, as Member States are obliged to do under Framework Decision 2008/913/JAI. Curtailing these expressions of support for fascism requires more decisive action by prosecutors and judges, who take overly heavy action towards peaceful political expression, but take no action towards these demonstrations which are full of violence; requires removing the protection and impunity that those responsible for committing crimes against humanity enjoyed during the dictatorship in order to offer truth, justice and redress; requires more active prevention of this process of violent radicalisation. In this respect,

1. Will the Radicalisation Awareness Network (RAN) include working groups focused on reviving the extreme right on its list?

2. Has it considered implementing a working group focused on the memory of victims of fascism, like the one focused on the memory of victims of terrorism?

3. What specific measures are the working group on communication and narratives implementing in relation to this problem?
