Someone ask for this a while ago (curiously it was someone from Argentina).

Consider that if there is someone that Knows how horrible is a civil war that one is México (and Russia and France too) , keep in mind that the mexican revolution is the bloddiest war ever fought in America, its number of deaths reached millions and destroyed the country.


----------------------------------- MEXICO AND THE SPANICH CIVIL WAR

That´s as close as México has ever come to forgive Spain , truth told, that was also a political move, México had just finished the revolution and the maximato (a period where president Calles govermentfrom the shadows) and needed to show himself as a strong, stable and decided nation. When the spanish civil war started, México used the oportunity to act.

Since México was under a socialist regime (more or less) under president Lazaro Cardenas he couldn´t support Franco, so he supportted the republicans, and was basically the only country that stated his suppor (Russia who was against facism did so too later).

Remmember that this happened just before ww2, the tensions where really high and everyone was on edge and preparing for it, any declaration of support could have started the war a bit earlier and Germany was already on his own thing.

The spanish civil war was fought also under the curtain by other coutries , England tried to impose a naval blockeade (it failed) because France was selling weapons to Spain (at the beginning) , the Axis was secretely supporting Franco, USA was bullying latinoamerica to stop them from helping Spain and everyone but México and later Russia declared themselves neutral in this issue.

HOW DID MEXICO HELPED.

First of all México offered asylum and shelter, specially to kids , hundreds came and the mayority stayed in México or came back later to settle themselves here (México does this refugees of the world, and inmigrants or migrants, by law) .

Second by providing ammunitions, supplies, soldiers, weapons, and even bought things from other countries in his own name to later pass them to the spaniards.

And also there are many pressumptions of mexicans in Europe being spies and México sending bullets prohibed by the Ginebra convention, but we´re so good that no has ever proven it ;)

This is an article (in spanish) that explain good enought and is not that long [link]

Here is a small video explaining a bit of the spanish civil war and 2 songs of the time, I suggest you to look for a remix or rock version of this songs:

Eran otros tiempos y guardar resentimiento hacia España carece de sentido, sin el Imperio Español, México no existiría. Comparado con el trato que otros imperios daban a sus pueblos conquistados, los españoles fueron benevolentes con los indígenas. México es mestizo, recriminar a España es recriminarse a uno mismo. Fueron hechos trágicos pero de todo el derramamiento de sangre que hubo en la conquista nacimos los mexicanos. Somos parte de una misma familia unida no sólo por un idioma sino también por cultura y genética. Españoles y mexicanos somos hermanos.

Ironía de la vida ..... los paises europeos ni quisieron ayudar al Toño .... hasta romano lo traicionó.... y eso q siempre puso a romano en primer lugar en su vida .... los únicos q ayudaron a España en la guerra civil fueron las colonias a las q sometió y explotó...... Chile /Manu 🇨🇱 también recibió a varios españoles exiliados.....

La verdad es que los españoles aún pagamos en verguenza el genocidio humano y cultural de la America precolombina, pero la misma mentalidad que llevó a este genocidio hizo derramar mucha sangre en España, la guerra civil es un ejemplo de ello, terminamos siendo víctimas de lo peor de nosotros mismos. Pero creo que también se debe tener en cuenta ciertas carácteristicas de la colonizaación española. España buscaba la ampliacion de territorio y recursos, pero también favorecía el mestizaje mientras que otros paises sólo querian los recursos y la población indigéna le era totalmente prescindible. La conquista era la ley de aquel tiempo, por lamentable que fuese, alguien habría llegado a Mexico antes o después y según que pais hubiese sido el resultado podría haber sido aún peor. Tal vez no tanto en el aspecto cultural, porque los españoles llevabamos con nosotros mucho cura chiflado que destruyeron gran parte del légado de civilizaciones enteras, es posible que otros paises se hubiesen sentido más proclives a conservarlo, pero en el aspecto humano habría sido aún peor.
Me ha gustado recordar que Mexico ayudo a España en un momento en que el resto del mundo la abandonó a su suerte, haber sido capaz de eso incluso a pesar del compresible resentimiento hacia España dice mucho de Mexico.
Espero que cuando Mexico aparezca en la serie se parezca a tu diseño, me ha gustado mucho :happybounce:

De hecho cuando yo me entere de que habiamos ayudado a españa en la guerra civil interna te juro que casi lanzo el libro al rostro del maestro. Yo sigo sin perdonarlos, estoy de acuerdo con que hayamos resivido refugiados, siempre lo hemos hecho pero ¡Armas! Enserio?! Pero bueno sigo amando la representacion de la historia en tus comis. Es genial!!!!!

Una cosa que leí hace tiempo, México fue el ÚNICO país que jamás reconoció el gobierno de Franco como legítimo. (Porque no lo era), y México fue refugio para el gobierno republicano en el exilio. Pocos españoles saben eso y pocos españoles honran a México por ello... Si bien es verdad que hablar de la Guerra Civil en España es casi un delito. 

Sólo un detalle sobre el cómic, y es que en la primera viñeta la bandera republicana en 1936 no era la rojigualda, sino la tricolor, roja, amarilla y púrpura.

France didn't do anything for republiacans. The politicals problems were so importants, no one in gouvernement sent help. There was just socialists and communists volunteers who went in Spain alone.

Awwwww....this was really cute!!! Especially the hug at the end! I'm pissed that Hetalia doesn't have any Latin American countries except Cuba! (I'm Puerto Rican) So nice!!! Not to mention tht Mexico and a couple other Latin American countries are helping Spain now with the crisis.

Yeah, hetalia needs more latins, It seems that in the 5th season there will appear at least 2-3 latinamerican countries, I guess Brazil and México, perhaps Argentina or Panama are the most likely candidates.

Not only helping, but receiving A LOT OF INMIGRANTS, México a bit less due to the drug war, but even so due to the lack of work there were getting more. Actually Brazil is "suffering" from it, due to Brazil´s boom, spaniards used they tourists visa´s to enter Brazil to get a job, however Spain was being an ass about the visa requirements for brazilians, so Brazil decided to apply those same requirements for Spaniards.
thepagansun's avatar
Yup! Sure does! :D Aww...Cuba needs his Caribbean siblings as well! Tehehe...

Yeah, I heard. These Europeans need to understand that they need to help us too if they want us to help them. Especially our "daddy" Spain. (For me our home country is our mother). Well, that was fair of Brasil. They're right.
