Clarence Kailin has returned to Spain. At a ceremony in Marça, near Tarragona,  his son John scattered the Vet’s ashes near the monument to the International Brigades. Amy Goodman, anchor of Democracy Now! and recipient of ALBA’s activist award, covered the news in her show yesterday (listen here).  See also an article by Jordi Olària for El Punt (in Catalan), and Alan Warren’s blog.

    Clarence Kailin:
    In this Veteran’s Day I wanted to acknowledge all your efforts as volunteer in the Spanish Civil War to save democracy and to fight fascism. Thank you very much for all you have done, to fight for good causes and to make this world a better place. We will not forget you.
