Despite thorough analysis of the Civil War, its impact on Spain’s emigrant communities remains largely unstudied. The article focuses on the Australian Spanish community to demonstrate that migrants experienced a two-fold response. They were galvanised to oppose Anglo-Australian control of the Solidarity campaign, and attempted to create an alternative public discourse. Secondly, the Civil War prompted the community to reassess their relationship to politics, dividing local Spaniards according to radical ideologies, as they debated how best to achieve socialist goals in both Spain and Australia.
