Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When I was a kid living in Toulouse back in the early 70s, my folks sent me to a summer camp in the Pyrenées where many of the counsellors were from Spain. I remember they taught us anti-Franco campfire songs; I kind of understood they had left Spain for political reasons.

Then again, they may have picked up the anti-Franquist tradition from their own parents...

And yes, plenty of people of Spanish origin in Toulouse; when I was in primary school, one my best buddies was named Emilio.
