Spain’s King Juan Carlos abdicates

Thousands of anti-monarchy protesters rallied demanding a referendum to decide whether Spaniards want a monarchy or a republic.

Following the historic news announced on Monday (June 02) that, after almost four decades on the throne, King Juan Carlos is abdicating to his heir, Prince Felipe, thousands of anty-monarchy activists took to the streets waving the red, yellow and purple republican flag and chanting slogans against the Spanish royal family.
