La Columna

La Columna is a UK based re-enactment group commemorating and celebrating the international volunteers who went to fight alongside the Spanish people in their defence against Fascism during the Spanish Civil War. La Columna is a non-party political organisation but with strong sympathies for the Spanish Republican cause of the late 1930s.
