Thread Name: Spanish Civil War 75th Anniversary
Subject: Spanish Civil War 75th Anniversary
The Spanish Civil war began in July 1936 and this year marks the 75th Anniversary. Volunteers from many countries joined the International Brigades and many gave their lives for the cause and it would be nice if people could sing songs at appropriate meetings or performances and mention the fact. Geoff Lawes has done a great job of collating songs about the SCW on a perma thread on Mudcat.
In UK there is a mobile Exhibition produced by the IB Memorial Trust that will be mounted around the country and it might be possible to book itand collaborate with performances in the same area. New songs and poems are also being written all the time in commemoration.
Some areas have Folk Against Fascism groups that might link up
PM me or Geoff Lawes if interested or Google IBMT or go on Facebook
