Details

From the end of the Spanish Civil War the anarchist movement fought to undermine the Francoist dictatorship. Solidarity actions in Western Europe aimed to isolate the regime and bring pressure to bear in defence of militants inside Spain. Determined to avoid casualties, their campaign of armed protests saved many activists from the death penalty.


The pamphlet contains sections on the attack on Spain's embassy in Genoa in 1949; the Internal Defence agency and the FIJL's First of May Group; the 1962 abduction of Spain's honorary vice-consul in Milan; and the kidnapping of Monsignor Marcos Ussia in Rome.
