And then on the other hand there are the anarchists. So much more interesting than the politicians who are debating right now on Catalan TV. Here is a film about Ethel MacDonald, a Scottish anarchist who supported the Republican Cause in Catalunya in the Civil War and who was making radio broadcasts from Barcelona calling for international support. Thanks to Nick Lloyd who organises Spanish Civil War tours in Barcelona and who has a really interesting Facebook page with old photos and fascinating information about that period.
There are a couple of books too which sound interesting.
"Homage to Caledonia" by Daniel Gray. A history of Scots who went to fight Franco in Spain.
