Spain’s new popular party government, led by Mariano Rajoy, has said it wants to make the sharing of memes over social media a crime.
The move is another element of Spain’s so-called Gag Law, which has seen restrictions on social media activism and public protest. The proposed law suggests that memes can "infringe the honour of a person".
Public reaction can be gauged by the #SinMemesNoHayDemocracia hashtag (no democracy without memes).
However, the Popular Party does not have a majority and will have to negotiate every one of its proposals with the opposition.
