Abstract:

This essay examines the challenges to existing histories and geographies of the left that are posed by a recognition of forms of solidarity and internationalism forged 'from below'. It discusses anti-fascist and anti-colonial solidarity with Ethiopia as it faced invasion from Mussolini's Italy, and examines how such forms of organising shaped the experiences and political outlooks of the African American International Brigade volunteers on the Republican side in the Spanish Civil War. In conclusion it offers some reflections on the possibilities opened up by internationalist solidarities in the current conjuncture.
