Volunteers for Liberty: 17th Oct 2020
October 17, is an important date in the fight against fascism. It is the anniversary of the 1938 passing-out parade of the IBs. Before volunteers returned to their home countries, they received a ticker tape send-off through the streets of Barcelona.
In tribute to those who fought with and supported the IBs, the Communist Party of Britain has planned commemorations across the nation today October 17 2020 with full support of the International Brigades Memorial Trust (IBMT).
In Manchester, the North West District of the Communist Party is planning a ceremony, subject to covid safety arrangements. Party members will be joined by supporters of the IBMT and the local IB Greater Manchester Group.
International Brigade member Sam Wild’s daughter, Dolores Long, is due to speak at today’s Manchester commemoration. She is a member of the IB Greater Manchester Group and the national executive of the IBMT.
Paul Ward of the Communist Party in Greater Manchester will also speak, while Paula Barker, the Labour MP for Liverpool Wavertree, was due to speak but because of Covid-19 restrictions will sadly not be able to attend .
This event was in association with the International Brigades Memorial Trust (IBMT) and was part of a National initiative with similar events happening in Glasgow, Cardiff and London and supported by several other regional activities around the country.
At 2pm the outgoing District Secretary Evan Pritchard introduced the speakers and relayed messages of solidarity from supporting organisations.
