Tribune Magazine

Tribune, a weekly journal, was founded in 1937 with a strong anti-fascist message to oppose the appeasement policy of the then Chamberlain goverment.   Leading contributors in the early days included George Orwell (the magazine’s literary editor), Michael Foot (one time leader of the Labour Party) and Nye Bevan (founder of the NHS).   David Mathieson follows in their footsteps ( a long way behind in every sense) and has published several articles in Tribune!

Angela Eagle, the Member of Parliament for Wallasey is a fan of our work.  Angela says
.
“These fascinating visits tell the story of a war which had reverberations far beyond Spain itself and helped shape Europe in the 20th century.  The ‘tours in time’ give a fascinating glimpse into the past and have a message which remains important more than 75 years on – they remind us all just why the values of freedom and democracy are still worth defending today.”

We agree.  That is why we are committed to the Spanish Sites project and we hope that you will want to join us on a tour.
