    In these true heroes of human kind burned a fire for us all to carry foward, stand up and never allow your Brothers and Sisters to be oppressd. “They are legend”, we must be inspired!

    Salud was a term meant to sustitute for “Adios”. Communists never liked any mention of Dios (God). When i see Pete Seeger I know what this is about. My parents left Spain before the Spanish Civil War for the US.They returned ,like thousands of others in the sixties. There had been universal health care since the mid forties. You could leave the country to earn higher wages in Germany or Switzerland and as soon as they had enough money people returned while the same government was there. Would people have returned to a communist country? Why did Spain,s gold reserves end up in the Soviet Union?
    Adios,Joe.
