Remembering the British Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War.


In August last year, Gregory Hill O’Connor contributed a guest post:” Why we should remember our contribution to the Spanish Civil War.

On 6th February, three Communist MEPs submitted a written declaration asking European states to recognise the contributions made by their citizens to the fight against fascism.

The role of working class women and men from Britain in the Spanish Civil War is a significant part of our history which is, sadly, overlooked.

We should recognise the values these people, who fought fascism against the wishes of their government, represented. Political, yes, also humanitarian.

There are no blue plaques  in recognition of those involved.
