(Redirected to Galician People's Union article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Galician People's Union (Galician: Unión do Povo Galego) is a Galician nationalist and communist political party, and is one of the registered political parties of Spain.

It was founded in 1964 with the intention of the independence of Galicia and its transformation into a socialist state. It caused the creation of nationalist fronts such as the Asemblea Nacional-Popular Galega and the Bloque Nacionalista Galego. Since 1982 it is one of the parties in the coalition. The spokesperson for the BNG in the Spanish Congress of Deputies, Francisco Rodríguez, is a member of this party.

The party publishes the magazine Terra e Tempo, and the party president is Bautista Goyel Álvarez Domínguez.

It celebrated its ninth national congress in January 2005 in Santiago de Compostela.



First foundation

In November, 1963, Xosé Luís Méndez Ferrín, Bautista Álvarez, Reimundo Patiño and Xosé Antonio Arjona, members of the literary group Brais Pinto, founded Unión do Pobo Galego as a communist and nationalist political party.
