The 1936-39 Spanish Civil War pitted the democratially elected Republican government against the fascist Franco backed by the overwhelming military firepower provided by Hitler and Mussolini.
The POUM (Workers' Party of Marxist Unification) was a Spanish Communist Paryy formed shortly before the Civil War began. Sympathetic to Trotsky rather than Moscow the POUM nevertheless joined the Popular Front against fascism while chooising to disagree with the majority on a range of issues. Most famously George Orwell served with a POUM frontline unit, writing of his time in his book Homage to Catalonia. Our design is bsed on the POUM party banner.
