Antorcha (meaning Torch in English) was a newspaper published from Las Palmas, Spain, briefly between 1935 and 1936.

History and profile[edit]

Antorcha was founded, as a fortnightly publication in 1935.[1] The newspaper was mainly theoretical in its nature.[1] Antorcha was published by the Manual and Intellectual Workers Syndicate of the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT).[2]

At the time of the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in July 1936, publication stopped.[1] Antorcha would later appear as a clandestine organ during the 1940s.[3][4]
