Emigracion Republicana Española
Junio 1989

Pueblo libre de Mexico:
Como en otro tiempo por la mar salada,
te va un rio español de sangre roja,
de generosa sangre desbordada.
Pero eres tu esta vez quien nos conquista y para siempre.
Pedro Garfias.

Y al llegar ustedes a esta tierra nuestra, entregaron su talent y sus energias a intensificar el cultivo de los campos, a aumentar la produccion de las fabricas, a avivar la claridad de las aulas, a edificar y honrar sus hogares y hacer, junto con nosotros, mas grande la nacion Mexicana.
General Lázaro Cardenas.

“En 1939 arribó a este puerto de Veracruz, procedente de Séte, Francia, el barco “Sinaia” con 1681 exiliados españoles, cuyas aportaciones a la vida productiva, la ciencia, las artes y la cultura, contibuyeron al engrandecimiento de la nación mexicana, en ese entonces gobernada por el Gral. Lázaro Cárdenas del Río.

El pueblo y el gobierno de Veracruz refrendan su reconocimiento en el 70 aniversario de este suceso histórico.”

But it's you this time who conquers us and forever.
Pedro Garfias

And when you arrived in this land of ours, you gave your talent and your energies to intensify the cultivation of the fields, to increase the production of the factories, to enliven the clarity of the classrooms, to build and honor your homes and make, along with us, a greater Mexican nation.
General Lázaro Cardenas

"In 1939 the ship "Sinaia", carrying 1681 Spanish exiles, arrived in this port of Veracruz, coming from Séte, France. Their contributions to productive lives, science, arts and culture, contributed to the betterment of the Mexican nation, then governed by General Lázaro Cárdenas del Río.

The people and the government of Veracruz confirm this recognition on the 70th anniversary of this historic event. "
