Pepe el Ferreiro (2)
Where yesterday's post on Pepe el Ferreiro was pleasant and positive, this one turns nastier. With my limited knowledge of Spanish, I find it hard to get the facts clear, but my understanding is that Pepe is the subject, and victim of dirty games in local politics.
The Principality wants (or wanted?) to fire Pepe from his job as museum director, which caused an outcry all through the larger community.
Interesting I find that in the protest, Pepe's beret plays a prominent role.
The text on the posters below says: "Absurd. Scandalous. And cacique. Pepe does not deserve this.
Pepe el ferreiro: only faithful to his ideas and his people".
If anyone of you knows more, I'd love to hear the details!
