Pacifism in Spain

In the 1930s Spain became a focus for Amparo Poch y Gascón and José Brocca supported the Republicans. [1] Brocca argued that Spanish pacifists had no alternative but to make a stand against fascism. He put this stand into practice by various means including organising agricultural workers to maintain food supplies and through humanitarian work with war refugees.

Pacifism was proscribed in Spain during the reign of Francisco Franco, [1] and several Spanish pacifists, such as the Tolstoyan Esteban Pallarols (1900-1946), were executed by the regime. [2]
