What is the name of the turn towards left-wing governments in many Latin American countries during the 21st century?
The pink tide is a wave of left-leaning and progressive movements and governments that emerged in Latin American countries in the late 20th and 21st centuries. This wave aimed at implementing social justice, economic equality, and international integration policies but started to lose its momentum in the late 2000s when internal conflicts and shifts in public sentiment started to appear in some countries.
Nonetheless, the movement appears to have reignited recently, with left-wing governments taking power in countries like Mexico (2018), Argentina (2019) and Brazil (2022), to name a few.
The pink tide has had varying degrees of impact throughout Latin America, with some countries barely affected by it, while others continue to be shaped by to this day.

Between which years was the Spanish Civil War fought?
1936 and 1939.
The Spanish Civil War saw the Republicans fight the Nationalists. The Republicans, who were in power at the time, consisted of people from multiple ideologies (from communism to socialism or anarchism) while the Nationalists, led by General Francisco Franco, were composed of Falangists and monarchists, an overall more conservative party.
Due to this clear-cut distinction of ideals and the international political scene at the time, this Civil War quickly became more than a war, representing for many the struggle between classes, creeds, or political stances.
The Nationalists won the war, putting an end to the Second Spanish Republic and placing Franco in power, where he would stay until 1975.
