About the memorial: A sculpture on top of a stone column which bears a metal dedication plaque with raised lettering. The unveiling of the International Brigade memorial on the Clyde Walkway, Customs House Quay, on 23 February 1980. Arthur Dooley's sculpture is of Dolores Ibarruri, "La Pasionaria", whose fiery speeches in support of the Republican cause in the Spanish Civil War inspired many of the volunteers. The speaker holding the crowd's attention on this occasion is Jack Jones, a veteran of the International Brigade who became General Secretary of the Transport and General Workers Union and a leading figure in the trade union movement. Funding for the memorial was raised by the Glasgow Branch of the International Brigade Association.
