The 20-year-old was set upon, thrown to the ground and kicked in the head when the gang unleashed hell.
The gang hurled a shower of insults at the young woman after she came outside to have a cigarette during an evening out at a cocktail bar with friends in Murcia, Spain, with one woman chanting: “Pig, pig, we’re going to kill you.”
She was shoved to one side and knocked to the ground, before being kicked in the head repeatedly as she tried to protect herself from the attackers.

The woman denied being a member of any political groups of far right movements, and claimed she was targeted for the bracelet she was wearing – which bore the national flag of Spain.
She told La Gaceta: “It was just a bracelet of the flag of Spain.
“They beat me for that, they want to ban us from carrying our flag.”

The harrowing assault has even been celebrated by far left thugs on social media, who claimed the attack was "poetic justice".
One gang member said: ”This young woman was organising hunts against us, what happened to her is normal.”
Another violent thug described the woman as a “nazi”, while a third said: "The girl is a fascist so the men are more than justified.”

He called for the “full weight of the law” to be brought against the perpetrators of the “horrible act”.
