Falangism in Latin America – Wikipedia

Puerto Rico[edit]

Around the time of the Spanish Civil War, the Falange was heavily active amongst the 8,000 or so Spanish citizens on the island, with an official branch of the Falange organised in San Juan. This group officially disavowed any involvement in local politics, although it was scrutinised closely by the FBIduring the Second World War.[25]

Two very minor Falangist groups have been active in the drive for Puerto Rican independence. The first of these was the Falange Boricua, who have claimed that they were banned on 7 May 2000 after leader Walter Lozano was arrested attempting to blockade U.S. military bases on the island.[26] They have since been refounded as the Movimento Nacional Sindicalista de Puerto Rico.[27]

Falangism in Latin America – Wikipedia

Falangism in Latin America has been a feature of political life since the 1930s as movements looked to the national syndicalist clerical fascism of the Spanish state and sought to apply it to other Spanish-speaking countries. From the mid 1930s, the Falange Exterior, effectively an overseas version of the Spanish Falange, was active throughout Latin America in order to drum up support among Hispanic communities.[1]However, the ideas would soon permeate into indigenous political groups. The term “Falangism” should not be applied to the military dictatorships of such figures as Alfredo StroessnerAugusto Pinochet and Rafael Trujillo because while these individuals often enjoyed close relations to Francisco Franco‘s Spain, their military nature and frequent lack of commitment to national syndicalism and the corporate statemean that they should not be classed as Falangist (although individuals within each regime may have been predisposed towards the ideology). The phenomenon can be seen in a number of movements both past and present.

Caribbean[edit]

Fascism has also been a rare feature of politics in this region, not only for the same reasons as those in Central America but also due to the continuation of colonialism well after the main era of fascism in much of the area. However Falangist movements have been active in Cuba, notably under Antonio Avendaño and Alfonso Serrano Vilariño from 1936 to 1940.[21] A Cuban Nazi party was also active but this group, which attempted to change its name to the ‘Fifth Column Party’ was banned in 1941.[22] As in Cuba, Falangist groups have been active in Puerto Rico, especially during World War II, when an 8000 strong branch came under FBI scrutiny.[23]
