Jarama remembered

Jarama Int Brig

Members of the XV International Brigade at Jarama, Spain 1937

Party members were amongst those who gathered at Belfast’s  Shankill Road Library, last week to commemorate the  80th anniversary  of the Battle of Jarama and the role played by the International Brigades during the Spanish Civil War.

Dublin historian Brian Hanley addressed the meeting on ‘The Radical Thirties’ and afterwards flowers were  laid at the International Brigade memorial in Writers Square.

The event was organised by the  Belfast’s International Brigade Commemoration Committee in partnership with the Greater Shankill Partnership, Belfast & District Trade Union Council, Shankill Library, Trademark and ICTU Youth Committee.
