lasted in some areas, beyond the attempt against-revolutionary coup in May 1937, has often

public order. '"
The same Antonio Martin was assassinated on 25 April 1937 and by order of Stalin, as
pointed F. Morrow: "The carabinieri, reinforced and joined by local forces PSUC attacked
workers Puigcerda patrols. 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.
