Presentation of RE

Respuesta Estudiantil was a student's movement self-styled social-patriotic or national-revolutionary and "the biggest patriotic youth organization in Spain". Of clear ultra-rightist, if not neo-Nazi orientation, RE maintained a fierce rivalry with the Liga Joven, the youth branch of the Movimiento Social Republicano (MSR).

On 30 December 2014, five militants of Respuesta Estudiantil attacked the building "occupied" in borough Tetuán, Madrid, by members of Hogar Social Ramiro Ledesma, a splinter of the MSR and Liga Joven, and attempted to set it into fire.
The next day, the direction of RE apologized in a press release and announced the disbanding of the movement, in Burgos (seat) and in the rest of Spain.

Flag of RE

The flag of RE (photo, photo, photo, photo, photo, photo) was square, black with the movement's emblem in the center. The emblem of RE was made of a yellow arrow saltire placed on a black background and surrounded by a yellow ring. The similarity of the arrow saltire with the arrow cross used by the Hungarian fascist party is probably not a mere coincidence.
