Date Tue, 07 Jun 2005 16:15:59 +0300

The Centre International de Recherche sur l'Anarchisme (CIRA) of Marseilles
sadly announces the death of Pepita Carpena in Marseilles on 5th June 2005.
pepita Carpena was born in Barcelona in 1919. An anarchist worker, at an early
age she took part in the Spanish Revolution in the ranks of the CNT, the
Iberian Libertarian Youth Federation (FIJL) and the Mujeres Libres movement.
Franco's victory forced her to go into exile. In Marseilles, she participated
in the activities of the CNT and also of the CIRA, of which she was coordinator
from 1988 to 1999. Her busy life as a militant was recounted in the pamphlet
"Toda la vida", published in 2000 by Éditions du Monde libertaire and
Alternative libertaire as part of the Graine d’ananar collection.
