Dozens of left-wing political parties and citizens organisations came together to demand 'A referendum now!' on the future of the monarchy. Spanish King Juan Carlos' abdication on June 2 revived anti-royalist fervour in the young democracy, sending thousands into the streets clamouring for a referendum on the monarchy itself.
