(en) Culture, Read: Dolidier, “All power in the assembl! A history of the Spanish labor movement during the transition (1970-1979) (ca, de, it, fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 13 Mar 2022 10:00:33 +0200

In the last years of Francoism, the 1970s marked the “  democratic transition  ”. Consultation with the socialist and communist opposition resulted in a transition “  granted  ” by those in power. Franco handed over power to Juan Carlos, reintroduced royalty while keeping the reins. The transition was organized around a pact of silence around torture, death, imprisonment and exile. ---- The large memorial washing machine was in place. The expectations of the Basque and Catalan peoples were cheated at the foot. After Franco's death in 1975, the Moncloa Pact in 1977 was a model of its kind in the exchange of social peace for the promise of democracy. He sealed in marble a union against nature. The agreement in principle was the assumed silence on past responsibilities and the absence of prosecution. We had to forget in order to be able to build a future neoliberal policy. “ Reconcile all the members of the Nation ” in order to be able to overcome the traumas of the civil war and the Franco dictatorship. Amnesia for amnesty. During this time, social demands would gradually emerge with a view to changing society.

Many workers, many inhabitants of popular neighborhoods invented multiple forms of assemblies. It is the democratic structures of this original social movement that this book explores. Arnaud Dolidier, a historian specializing in the Spanish labor movement during the transition period, relies on abundant sources to trace the history of these assemblies, the large-scale social struggles that were born there, the debates that went through them, and their repression by the democratic state in transition. This book questions an immediate political and social reality. It raises questions about democracy, the role of intellectuals, the “ fragile nature of a set of political configurations ”. These are all questions that have animated the Boards in the past.
