[MEXICAN SOCIALIST ANTI-FASCIST BROADSIDE, 1930s] "Atencion Mexicanos"

Broadsheet (297 x 200 mm). Printed in red on inferior paper (creased, frayed at margins). Preserved in a mylar sleeve. Good. Item #3632

RARE MEXICAN SOCIALIST ANTI-FASCIST / ANTI-FALANGE BROADSIDE, PRINTED ON THE CHEAPEST PAPER POSSIBLE, INEXPLICABLY PRESERVED FOR AT LEAST 80 YEARS. The dating of the broadside can be determined by the reference to "Presidente Cardenas," i.e. Lazaro Cardenes, who served as the President of Mexico from 1934 until his death in 1940. We have been unable to locate another copy of this broadside.

The socialist group UGT warns their Mexican compatriots that Franco, with the help of Hitler and Mussolini, is dominating the Spanish people, and that President Cardenas -- with the help of all conscious Mexicans -- is saving the country from foreign domination. The Spanish monopolies, grocers, bartenders, landowners and exploiters of Mexicans are organizing themselves in the "Spanish Falange" and trying to attack the Mexican Government -- and liberties of the Mexican people -- to serve the Franco regime. "Mexican people must remember their heroes and their history and give a new cry of Independence!"

¶ Text of the Broadside:

ATENCION MEXICANOS:

La "honorable colonia espanola" en Mexico, en su enorme mayoria acaparadros, abarroteros, cantineros, hacendados y explotadores en general del Mexicano, abusando de la hospitalidad que se les brinda se estan organizando en la "Falange Espanola" e intentan atentar contra el Gobierno y las libertades populares sirviendo asi a los propositos del Franquismo.

Si Franco con la ayuda de Hitler y Mussolini domino al pueblo espanol, el C. Presidente Cardenas con todos los mexicanos conscientes esta salvando al Pais del dominio extraniero.

En Mexico no debemos permitir por decoro y por valor personal qua los gachupines se ordanicen y CONSPIREN CONTRA MEXICO.

FUERA DE MEXICO LOS QUE VIOLEN LAS LEYES. El 33 para todos los "honorables" explotadores del pueblo. El 33 a los extranjeros traidores a su Patria, transfugas y aventureros que celebran comidas, de "plato unico" por el triunfo del fascismo en la Madre Patria. Si los senores "Falangistas" gallegos, baturros y gachupines ex-alpargateros insisten, las organizaciones y el Pueblo Mexicano deben recordar a sus heroes y su historia y dar un nuevo grito de Independencia.

Fuera de Mexico los "Falangistas"!
