Spain versus England

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 If in the Spanish Civil War,
The British Govenment had helped the Left
Against Generalissimo Franco,
Then there would have been no
Scenes like Wednesday night,
The generational consequence
Of forty years of Fascism and racism
And legitimised hatred.

Easy to forget what a turning point the Spanish Civil War was and easy to forget what a brilliant play the Stroud Football Poets put together back in the 90’s, “No Pasaran!”
