FOOTAGE of a migrant worker taking a far-right party to task on its anti-immigration rhetoric has gone viral on social media.
The video, liked by at least 19 million people on Twitter, shows the worker tending to crops in a field in Eastern Spain before addressing Vox.
He began by mockingly giving a fascist salute. The worker said: “When people say long live Spain, or long live Vox, no, you do not have to do that.”
He then pointed to the crops and added: “Spain is here.”
“It is very easy to talk about the field because you are not here. You can sit in your chair and talk s*** about immigrants, but look, this is what makes Spain my friend,” the worker said.
“That’s what immigrants do. We are hard workers,” he added.

Several people took to Twitter to praise the video.
User Victory said: “That’s patriotic, not having a little flag on your bracelet or voting for fascist parties.”
The video comes as Vox has called for irregular migrants to be deported and for immigration into Spain to be restricted.
