Anarchist Immigrants in Spain and Argentina

University of Illinois Press

This chapter focuses on Spanish anarchist immigrants and Argentine anarchists during the civil war and the experience of refugees from Spain. Abad de Santillán served on the powerful Antifascist Militias Committee, while Manuel Villar edited Solidaridad Obrera, an important anarchist periodical. Many other Spaniards returned from Argentina to participate in the civil war, among them José María Montero and Antonio Casanova. While these individuals were only a small number of those fighting in the war, their experience in Argentina and their enthusiasm for the social revolution at the outbreak of the civil war made them staunch supporters of the republican cause.
