   The Lincoln Brigades most likely had few Anarchoits, and the CP USA
did orgnazie them, etc. But in Spain the anarchist/anarcho-syndicalist
movement was strong, and extremely active fighting fascism. So were
the Socialists and Trotskyites in POUM and other groups and trade unions...
Stalin and the CP did sell-out this homegrown anti-fascist movement to
positon the CP in  stronger position... much to the horor, disgust,
outrage, etc of anarchists and Socialists...

  How much is a majority/minority: not sure. But history makes them a
significant factor....
