“Antifa” postcard from 1936. Issued by the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE) to commemorate the 2 million dollars (about 3 US billion dollars today) Mexico gave to the Spanish Republic to fight the fascist revolt. What Ernest Hemingway called “good Mexican rifles” weren’t necessarily made in Mexico, but were bought with Mexican financial and logistical assistance in evading British and French arms blockades.
