The president of the Partido Popular in the Basque Country, María San Gil, was violently heckled by some 25 Galician nationalists when she arrived to give a talk at the Economics faculty of Santiago de Compostela University last Tuesday. During the scuffle between the students, two policemen and four bodyguards, one of the latter sustained minor injuries. The students were calling for the Partido Popular to be made illegal “because you are the terrorists” and they also called Sra San Gil a fascist. Sra San Gil gave her talk and was again insulted when she left the faculty. The police have since arrested two students and charged them with insulting and threatening her. Sra San Gil retired from politics for a few months last year while she recovered from breast cancer.
