Hogar Social Madrid

Hogar Social Madrid (HSM) is a neo-Nazi group established in 2014 by Melisa Domínguez. The group, originally named Hogar Social Ramiro Ledesma for the fascist ideologist Ramiro Ledesma (1905-1936), emerged in 2014 in the Tetuán borough, where they occupied an empty building. Since then, the group has occupied another seven buildings, being each time expelled by the police one week to one year later.
The intent of the "occupations" was to provide housing to "Spanish people, only Spanish people, who don't have a decent home".

HSM's strategy of "occupation" and street demonstrations to get visibility is modeled on the Italian neo-Nazi group Casa Pound Italia. Melisa Domínguez was member of the Movimiento Social Republicano (MSR) and of its youth branch, Liga Joven, which emerged in May 2013 in Medinaceli, the only place in Spain with a monument dedicated to Ezra Pound (1885-1972).

Lo Nuestro

Lo Nuestro (Ours) is self-styled "a patriotic social association with delegations in Alcoy, Alicante, Elche, Murcia and Cartagena".
This is indeed an ultra-rightist collective, which organized, on the model of Hogar Social Madrid, "social actions", such as food supply, "for Spaniards only", in Murcia and Elche.

The flag of Lo Nuestro (photo, photo, photo, photo) is square, yellow with a stylized black tower surrounded by a black ring.
