The 1987 struggle against threatened closure in and around the shipyards of Puerto Real, Spain, in both workplace and community witnessed the anarcho-syndicalist union CNT playing both a prominent and decisive role.

The CNT’s involvement meant that the methods of organising and the forms of action taken departed from those common to reformist unions – with dramatic consequences. Mass assemblies both in the yards and surrounding localities involved workers, their families, neighbors and all supporters.
