The anarchist parenthesis which found its origin in the events of 19 July 1936 and lasted in some areas, beyond the attempt against-revolutionary coup in May 1937, has often been recounted, sometimes very critically, when it is the opponents of "libertarian spring" that are harnessed. ---- Thus, social achievements, exemplary in the region Puigcerda, as in the rest of Catalonia, were often the object of vilification: transvestites, to the point that the anarchists were assigned the worst excesses.

Antonio Martin, mayor and leader of the CNT, popular throughout Catalonia, was shot dead by the Stalinists (...) "

It FRIDAY 17 MAI 2013, from 7:00 p.m., Room Cinema SAILLAGOUSE (Pyrénées-Orientales), the activists of the group Puig Antich for the Coordination of Anarchist Groups will host a conference on the theme: "1936 to 1939, spring Puigcerda libertarian. " Researchers Catalans will be present.

We hope to many and many to this conference, which will moreover be contradictory.
