Talk: The Spanish Civil War: 80 Years On

Wed 20 Mar 2019, 6pm, Sheffield Students Union (View Room), Western Bank S10 2TG 4

The Spanish Civil War resulted in the fascist regime of Franco, lasting almost 40 years.What drove this rise in conservatism and the popularity of Francoism? How was it able to defeat Republican Spain? The events of the Civil War and the brutal repression following it are still alive in the Spanish memory today. Recent police brutality against those protesting for an independent Catalonia reminds us of SpainĀ“s repressive history, and the legacy of nationalism which continues to plague the country.Event hosted by University of Sheffield Sheffield Marxist Society.Facebook event page
