Garrison Library researching the 'Socorro Rojo Internacional' - social service organisation established by Communists in the 1920s

Published by GBC News

The Garrison Library is researching the 'Socorro Rojo Internacional' - which was a social service organization established by Communists in the 1920s.

Having made a call-out for information, the Library discovered that a secular branch was established in Gibraltar as a way to help those with more socialist leanings.

Michael Beltran caught up with Unionist Michael Netto and Dr Jennifer Ballentine-Perera who both shed a fascinating light on the Gibraltar branch and those who fought against fascism.
