No pardon for Spanish civil war helpers (Switzerland)

Breaking News

Swiss volunteers fought alongside the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, incurring punishments when they returned home. They have still not been pardoned.
A group fighting for their rehabilitation has published a list of the volunteers' names to heighten awareness of this forgotten chapter of Swiss history – 70 years on.

"We are in a state of enthusiasm. It's not pure anarchism here. Our Spanish companions have shown that you can live without masters...

And we are living it here on its moral and material levels – what more could a militant wantt?"
