[226 exiled Spanish republicans (including anarchists) who had been used as forced labour by the Todt organisation were interned in Chorley, Lancashire and treated as Prisoners of War. This leaflet was part of the solidarity campaign by anarchists (and others on the Left) which led to their liberation.
