75th Anniversary of the Spanish civil war

RCT Socialist Update no. 25

This month marks the 75th anniversary of the Spanish Civil War which included revolutionary movements of republicans, including socialists who fought against the rise of General Franco and of fascism in Spain. A couragous battle not just fought by the Spanish working class by from all around the world in the form of International Brigades, who rightly saw this not as a a civil war but as a class war fought in the interests of the entire working class.

Ultimately Franco was able to take control of Spain but despite this the heroism and bravery of the working class masses who resisted this can not be matched and the legacy is full of lessons of how socialists should organise today and the false tactics of forginf alliance with so called 'progressive capitalists' To mark the 75th anniversarywe will be discussing the Spanish Civil War at our weekly branch meeting.
