New video uploads (4): “¡No pasarán!”

January 19, 2011

Another clip from Facing Fascism:

“No pasarán”–“They shall not pass”–was the antifascist rallying call throughout the war. The phrase referred to the defense of Madrid from the Fascist onslaught. A Spanish cigar maker living in Tampa, Florida, composed a song with those words as the refrain; it was recorded on a ’79 in New York in 1937, and was quickly popularized.
