Franco names changed

line
Santa Cruz - 18.12.2008 - Having failed to secure a name-change consensus in the council a few months ago, Zerolo drew up his own list to replace the names of some of Santa Cruz's busiest roads, including the Rambla de General Franco and Avenida General Mola. Although the move has been widely welcomed, opponents say the rather bland substitutes chosen (Dream Street, Tolerance Avenue etc) should themselves be altered to something more meanginful.
