Suppression of News in Spain and Political
Statements Prevented from Reaching the People
In Spain, as in so many other countries, much of the real news about what is happening to the working class and the poor, is suppressed, or at the very least is not widely reported. And for reasons like this the claims that Spain enjoys a true “democracy” and “a free press” are gross exaggerations of the real situation. We at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET will try to help break down this government and media news embargo.
In addition there is a wealth of people’s history in Spain, and about the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) in particular, which has been suppressed in both that country and around the world. We will also do our best to make some of that history available again.

The Spanish Civil War
“The Line of the Comintern on the Civil War in Spain”, an unsigned article in Revolution, Vol. 6, #1, June 1981, published by the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. This important 65-page article critically examines the line and policies of the Comintern in leading the struggle against Franco’s fascist revolt. We believe this is the first time this article has been made available in a readable format on the Internet. PDF Version (2,415 KB); MS Word (3,251 KB)
