International Brigades - 75th anniversary
'This Saturday, 22 October, is the 75th anniversary of the Spanish Republic issuing the decree to recognise the International Brigades which were forming to join the defence of Spain's Land and Freedom. In a short period of time some 32,000 volunteers from more than 50 countries joined the Brigades.
Made by Sanum Ghafoor, Philosophy Football's film of the Gala to celebrate the 75th Anniversary features Billy Bragg, Robert Elms, Jackie Kay, Tayo Aluko, Grace Petrie, one of the last remaining International Brigaders David Lomon, and many others.
It is educative, entertaining and inspiring, a fitting way to mark the anniversary.
Plus! Philosophy Football's 75th Anniversary T-shirt design features the iconic solidarity poster designed by one of Catalonia's greatest artists.'
See HERE for the shirt.
