(en) [Spain] The CGT joins the tribute to the medical anarchist Amparo Poch By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 7 Jul 2018 11:07:34 +0300

The CGT union will go on Wednesday, July 4, to honor the anarchist medical Amparo Poch with the intention of claiming and recovering from oblivion the importance of her role in the libertarian sphere. ---- The place chosen for the homage could not be more accurate, the street Madre Rafols No. 9 where the doctor and anarchist Amparo Poch made her first consultation. Amparo can not at first study Medicine by the refusal of her father, who defended that it was a career only for men, reason why studied Magisterium. Shortly afterwards he would break with parental obligations and enroll in Medicines, graduating with an extraordinary prize in the Sciences section, in 1929 with honors in all subjects (28 honors). In its promotion were licensed 97 men and 2 women. She was the second woman to be licensed in the Faculty of Medicine of Zaragoza.

Amparo has implemented health education programs for working women and has developed a major work on child health to reduce the high mortality rates of the time.

But outside the scientific scope, Amparo was a prominent figure within the anarchist world of the time. She was one of the founders, before the beginning of the War, of Mujeres Libres magazine . During the War she worked at the Ministry of Health with Federica Montseny as director of Social Assistance between 1936 and 1937. She organized expeditions of refugee children to Mexico, France and Russia. He directed the project of Children's Homes that replaced the old asylums and orphanages and endowed with a home the orphans of the Republic. She was also a doctor in the militias until she was forced into exile in France in 1939, where she was not able to work as a doctor until 1946. The illness consumed her in physical decay, mental alienation and bitterness of character. She died on April 15, 1968 in Toulouse.

Since the CGT we want to remember the memory of a woman so important and outstanding in her two spheres; the scientific and the anarchist. That's why we call to pay homage to Amparo Poch.
