A group of Gibraltarian lawyers and businessmen published a letter in 1968 in the Gibraltar Chronicle (see LINK) advocating a political settlement with Spain to solve the disputed status of Gibraltar. The letter caused riots in Gibraltar and the van being toppled in the picture belonged to one of the group. They came to be known as Los Palomos – the Doves.
