by the writer in the Daily Herald as proof positive of his fascist aims.
It is nothing of the sort. It is simply a protest against the disunion prevailing on the Right and a demand that all Spaniards who desire the welfare of Spain, respect for the Church, justice for the religious orders, civil and religious liberty, and equitable conditions for the wageearner on the land and in the towns should range themselves under the banner of this great leader.
"Popular Action" under the leadership of Sr. Gil Robles has good prospects of achieving victory in the coming elections.
In that event the. writer in the Daily Herald predicts a new revolt, "for the Spanish workers will not submit to terror without a struggle."
The terror is, of course, Fascism, with the intention of establishing which Sr. Gil Robles is credited, contrary to all the evidence, to the whole course of his political conduct, his deprecation in countless speeches of violence as a means of either attaining desired reforms or remedying grievances, his insistence on government by the ballot, and his opposition to the existing Fascist party.
There was no threat of Fascism on the occasion of the last revolt, and a new revolt will likewise be without such a motive. Th..,ortly motive will be the wish of a minoriey to rule a majority.
There is 'nate and female suffrage in Spain and the workers of both sexes constitute the majority of the people. If, therefore Sr. Gil Robles triumphs it will be mainly by the workers' votes, and the workers who are not going to submit without an armed struggle will be a recalcitrant and lawless minority.
