In the early 1970s, Salvador Puig Antich of the Iberian Liberation Movement (MIL) was engaged in a fight to the death with Franco’s brutal fascist dictatorship over the future of Spain. In 1974, the Franco regime garroted Puig Antich—literally strangled him to death. The charge was for shooting a policeman during a bank robbery, the details of which were contested. Puig Antich’s case became a cause célèbre internationally. This is his story.
Ricard de Vargas Golarons, former member of the Movimiento Ibérico de Liberación and prisoner of the Franco dictatorship, is now a movement historian.
Peter Gelderloos is author of (among other works) Worshiping Power.
